Posters Preparation

Posters should be prepared using an area of 90cm x 120 cm at maximum and in a portrait orientation. The use of small fonts on the text production is not recommended. It is not necessary to include the poster in the JEMS system. The authors may follow the SIBGRAPI 2013 poster template in PowerPoint or Corel Draw formats.


Call for Workshop of Theses and Dissertations

The Workshop of Theses and Dissertations (WTD) aims to  motivate  discussions  about the graduate-level research on  topics covered by SIBGRAPI among graduate students, recently graduated students, and senior researchers.

Researchers who have recently concluded their graduate studies are cordially invited to submit a paper to the SIBGRAPI WTD. Graduate works in progress are welcome for submission to the Workshop of Works in Progress (WIP), which will be accepting 4-pages papers in 2013. 

Accepted works will be presented in poster sessions and published in the SIBGRAPI electronic proceedings (with ISSN), provided that at least one of the authors is registered to the event.

Who can submit?

Students who defended their M.Sc or Ph.D. after 01/01/2012 and did not present their final work at previous editions of the SIBGRAPI WTD.



Selection criteria

The WTD program committee will evaluate the submitted works with respect to the following criteria: originality, technical quality, contribution to the research area, and clarity of presentation.


Best work awards

A number of awards for the best Ph.D. and M.Sc. works will be given based on the selected work grades and on the opinion of a small committee that will evaluate the poster presentations during the event. In order to participate of the contest for the best work awards, the paper must be written in English.


Instruction to the authors

Submissions related to M.Sc. work may be written in Portuguese, Spanish, or English, using the IEEE Latex file format. However, we strongly recommend paper submission in English. Submissions related to Ph.D. work must be written in English using the IEEE Latex file format. The text should follow the SIBGRAPI formatting guidelines, but with the following adjustments:

  • The names of the authors should not be omitted, disregarding the requirement of anonymity for the articles. In particular, students must appear as the first author and the advisor as the last author, with eventual co-advisors and other collaborators in the middle.
  • Texts in Portuguese or Spanish (only M.Sc. work) should include, besides the abstract in Portuguese or Spanish, also an abstract in English.
  • The articles are limited to 6 – double-column pages.
  • Abstracts should contain no more than 200 words.
  • The words in the title must be initiated by capital letters.
  • The text should indicate, by a footnote on the first page, whether the work relates to a M.Sc. dissertation or a Ph.D. thesis.
  • The papers should be submitted through the JEMS system. Please go to the submission instruction page for further information.
