Diagrams is an international interdisciplinary conference series, covering all aspects of research on the theory and application of diagrams. We invite proposals for tutorials of 1.5 hours in length. Tutorials are expected to address topics that are of interest to the Diagrams 2021 conference attendees. Please refer to the calls for the three tracks for their associated list of topics:


Tutorials differ from workshops in that they do not solicit contributions from attendees. Previously, attendees have particularly enjoyed tutorials that are interactive and spark debate.

Examples of previous tutorials may provide some inspiration and guidance and can be found at:
