The Organizing Committee for VLSID-2024 invites proposals for tutorials to be conducted at the Conference to be held in Kolkata, India during the period 6-7th January 2024.

Tutorials are an integral and an important part of all the editions of VLSID, where instructors have the opportunity to share their expertise on a specific field/research with fellow researchers and those who wish to discover said field/research. We are soliciting proposals for topics of academic and industrial applications interests. These topics may be established or it may be emerging – and with profound and/or new insights thereto, that is best articulated by means of an oral presentation. Please note this year we will have the tutorial session in off-line mode. We look forward to your presence at Kolkata for VLSID in January, 2024.
