On Monday, May 9th, there will be a series of tutorials covering a wide range of topics relevant to the frequency control community. The tutorials include both the fundamental topics of frequency and timing at a level suitable for practitioners new to the field, and more advanced  and  specialized  topics  related  to  specific  areas. Cavity optomechanics, atomic clocks, and MEMS sensors,  will  be highlighted in the tutorial sessions this year with a special attention to their use for frequency control applications.   The  tutorials  aim  to  provide  useful  knowledge  to  the  beginners  in  the community, as well as those with extensive experience.
