Submissions Instructions

IEEE LaTeX Recommendations

All manuscripts submitted to SIBGRAPI 2013 must follow the IEEE LaTeX recommendations. The SIBGRAPI IEEE LaTeX style is available below:


Note that submissions in English is strongly recommended and that only some tracks allow submissions in Portuguese or Spanish. 

Please follow the included instructions and the IEEE formatting guidelines, avoiding any change to the format (in particular avoiding \vspace command, or creating subsections or paragraph title with any command different from \subsection[*] or \paragraph[*]). 

The bibliography should be formatted with a 9pt font. Please do not change the font size, even if it helps to comply with the page limit! The paper length may vary depending on the track you are submitting the paper. Please check the respective calls for the maximum allowed number of pages for each track. The illustrations of the paper should be generated either truly vectorial or rasterized with at least 300dpi.

If the track to which you are submitting a manuscript requires anonymity, then see details below in the Anonymity Requirements section.


Short JEMS Guide

Each manuscript must be submitted electronically, as a PDF file, via the JEMS submission site. Uploading of additional files will be available for an optional compressed zip archive with the supplementary material. Every co-author of a manuscript must be registered as a user of JEMS before the manuscript is submitted via the above URL. The material can be replaced at any time before the track deadline.

To start a new submission process, upon logging on at JEMS submission site, select the icon "submit paper" for the track. Fill in the paper registration information requested in that page and then click on the "submit" icon, in order to complete your paper’s registration. After doing so, you will view a page called "Registering Paper".

The first line after the title of this page should say "Paper created", where there will be a (five-digit) number assigned by JEMS to your manuscript. 

You can upload the PDF file of your manuscript by following the "upload" link available on the "Registering Paper" page, or log out of the JEMS site and return later to upload your paper. 

If you choose the latter option, an "Upload" icon for each registered manuscript will be accessible from your SIBGRAPI 2013 home page within JEMS. In any case, please upload the PDF file with your manuscript first and then, if desired, return to the manuscript upload page (either using your browser’s "Back" button or through your SIBGRAPI 2013 JEMS home) and upload the ZIP file with the supplementary material. You should receive an e-mail confirmation every time you perform an upload.


Anonymity Requirements 

For the tracks in which the review process of submissions will be double blind, authors must prepare their manuscripts without including any indication of their identities or institutional affiliations. Authors’ identities will be tracked only by the JEMS submission system, and visible only by the track chairs. The program committee members and referees who review the paper will not know the identity of the authors.

To ensure anonymity of authorship, authors must prepare their manuscript as follows:

  • Authors' names and affiliations must not appear on the title page or elsewhere in the paper. Instead, please include under the title the number assigned to your paper by the on-line paper registration system (JEMS), for instance, by including the command \author{Paper id: Manuscript number} in your LaTeX source file.
  • Funding sources must not be acknowledged anywhere in the paper.
  • Research group members or other colleagues or collaborators must not be acknowledged anywhere in the paper.
  • It is strongly suggested that the submitted file is named with the assigned submission number. For example, if your assigned paper number is 39352, then name your submitted file 39352.pdf.
  • Source file naming must also be done with care. For example, if your name is Jane Smith and you submit a PDF file generated from a .dvi file called Jane-Smith.dvi, one can infer your authorship by looking into the PDF file.
  • The same rules apply to supplementary material. 


You must also use care in referring to related past work, particularly your own. For example, avoid mention to your work as "In our previous work [1,2]...", prefer third person referencing as "In previous work [1,2]...". Despite the anonymity requirements, you should still include all relevant work of your own in the references, using the above style (omitting them could potentially reveal your identity by negation).

It is the responsibility of authors to do their best to preserve anonymity. Papers that do not follow the guidelines here, or otherwise potentially reveal the identity of the authors, are subject to immediate rejection.
