Date: Sunday June 16, 2013

PLDI is a forum where researchers, developers, educators, and
practitioners exchange information on the latest practical and
experimental work in the design and implementation of programming
languages. The tutorial program enhances the technical program by
providing a day of half-day tutorials offered in parallel
tracks. Tutorials for PLDI 2013 are solicited on any topic relevant to
the PLDI audience. In particular, tutorials that strive to do one of
the following have been particularly successful in the past:

* Describe an important piece of research infrastructure
* Educate the community on an emerging topic

For examples of past tutorials, see (among others) the websites of
PLDI 2012, PLDI 2011, and PLDI 2010:

* http://pldi11.cs.utah.edu/index.html#events
* http://www.cs.umd.edu/~mwh/pldi10tutorials/program.html

In 2013, tutorials will be held on Sunday June 16, 2013 (the day
before the main conference).  We expect half-day tutorials (3 hours
plus a break).

For each accepted tutorial, one presenter will receive complimentary
registration to PLDI.

We are investigating low-cost options for video-recording tutorials if
and only if tutorial presenters wish.
