The MLSP2021 Tutorials Committee invites you to propose tutorials teaching the technical background of a given subject in Machine Learning for Signal Processing, or demonstrating its potential applications.

Tutorials are intended to show what can be done, but even more importantly, how this is done and what kind of tools can be used to do it. In a proposal for a tutorial you should consider that attendees come from diverse backgrounds, ranging from research and development to education and application.

We are soliciting 2-hour tutorial proposals at the beginning, intermediate, or advanced level in all areas pertinent to Machine Learning for Signal Processing.

Tutorial proposals are about 2-4 pages in length, clearly indicating the audience that is addressed as well as the syllabus of instruction. They will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs. External reviewers might also be solicited.

The final selection will be based on quality of the submission, qualification of the presenters, relevance to the conference topics, and balance of topics.
