Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience. Tutorials whose audience is broader than the database research community are encouraged. Proposals must be no more than five pages, and must include enough material to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. The intended length of the tutorial (1.5 or 3 hours) should also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality presentation will be achieved within the chosen time period. Proposals should be submitted electronically by March 5, 2004 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) to:

Raymond Ng, ng@cs.ubc.ca
Matthias Jarke, jarke@picasso.informatik.rwth-aachen.de

The submission must contain the name, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number of the speaker. Tutorial presentations will be published and made available to VLDB participants, and must be ready for publication by July 1, 2004.
