All submissions must include a description with examples of presentation,
handout materials, and background information about the instructor(s).
Please use the UPA-provided templates
to prepare these documents. In addition, you will complete forms
online with additional information when you submit your tutorial.
See the section “Submitting Your Proposal” for additional information.
Submission must be 4 pages minimum, 10 pages maximum, and include
a representative example of handouts, e.g. 6-10 slides embedded
in the proposal or a bullet-point list with brief description
of the content of the slides and handouts.(1MB maximum file size)
Please use the UPA-provided checklist!
UPA pays an honorarium to tutorial instructors.The pay scheduled
is based on the number of registered participants.
Up to 30 registered participants receives the base rate of $1,000
for one full-day tutorial, $2,000 for a two-day tutorial, $500
for a half-day tutorial.
Between 31 and 50 participants receive the base rate plus an
additional $75 for one day for each additional participant, $150
for two-day tutorials, $37.50 for evening tutorials.
Between 51 and 100 participants receive the base rate plus an
additional $50 per tutorial day for each registered participant.
($100 for two-day tutorials and $25 for half-day tutorials.)
When tutorial enrollment falls below a break-even point (which
may be in the general range of 5 to 10 participants), the tutorial
may be subject to cancellation by UPA. If there is a minimum number
of participants needed for an effective tutorial (perhaps a minimum
needed to complete exercises), your submission should indicate
acceptable minimums, and we will monitor this and keep you posted.
UPA provides printed
copies of your tutorial booklet for participants.
UPA does not cover expenses for any other instructional materials,
such as exercises and handouts.
Tutorial instructors do not receive free or discounted registration
for the UPA conference.
If a tutorial has two or more instructors, the
honorarium will be shared among them (unless otherwise arranged).
