Future of the CHI tutorial program

The Tutorials program at conferences such as CHI and CSCW was once very popular. However, this has changed over the past few years. Attendance has plummeted, and it's no longer clear that there is a sufficient audience for the current Tutorials program. In response to this, fundamental changes are being considered. Now is your chance to weigh in.
