- Goals: What are the objectives of the tutorial? What is the benefit to attendees? Why is
this tutorial important to include at CODS-COMAD?
- Target Audience: What is the target audience? What background should attendees have?
It would be a plus if you can articulate the prerequisites for the audience, e.g.
“Understand derivatives and integrals as found in introductory Calculus”, “Understand
‘classical’ supervised methods such as decision trees and Naive Bayes”
- Proposers: Please provide names, affiliations, email addresses, and short bios for each
proposer of the tutorial. Bios should cover the proposer’s expertise related to the topic of
the tutorial. If there are multiple proposers, give details about the distribution of the
tutorial among them.
