  •     The Visual Computer (2010)



Submission Guidelines 

Papers should be prepared following the IEEE format and their length should not exceed 8 pages. Papers will be double blindly reviewed by at least three experts in the topic of the work. All full papers are double blindly reviewed by at least three experts in the topic of the work, and all papers recommended by the reviewers will be accepted. All accepted papers are published in the proceedings of the conference (submitted to IEEE Xplore) and scheduled for oral or poster presentation. From 1997 to 2008, SIBGRAPI proceedings were published by IEEE Computer Science, by CPS since then, and since 1996, at the SIBGRAPI Digital Library Archive, maintained by Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE).
