Virtual and Augmented Reality Graduate Workshop (WTD - SVR'16)

The Workshop

The Virtual and Augmented Reality Graduate Workshop (WTD-SVR2016) is a venue where ongoing masters and PhD works may be discussed. The aim of the Workshop is to allow the preliminary work to be evaluated by researches with expertise in the field. The ongoing work may further benefit from all the input gathered in the Workshop so that it may lead to a solid, improved work, result of all the contribution provided by experts, other graduate students as well as the industry and academic participants of the SVR2016.

Besides obtaining a preliminary evaluation, as well as contribution, to ongoing graduate work, the workshop participants will be in touch with an overview of research topics being exploited in graduate programs from Brazil and abroad. That shall aid students who are yet to pinpoint their research topic, which may benefit from the brainstorming sessions. That may also lead to new collaboration setups, through the exploitation of intersections of interest identified in the Workshop technical sessions.

The work submitted to the Workshop shall be ongoing work. Finished (or about to be finished) work will not be accepted in the Workshop and shall be submitted to SVR2016's main track. The paper can be submitted to WTD even if a similar paper was submitted to the SVR2016's main track.

Instructions to submit a work to the Virtual and Augmented Reality Graduate Workshop – WTD-SVR2016

The authors should submit two documents, as follows:

  1. Standard Research Report, containing a description of the main aspects of the work, as well as about the involved student(s). The report shall be submitted according to the standard form named: WTD-SVR2016 Research Report;
  2. Short paper (4 pages maximum), according to the document Modelo para Publicação de Artigos da SBC. The paper shall clearly disclose the (expected) contributions of the work, considering the interest topics of the conference. A suggestion of paper organization would include the following sections: Introduction, Motivation (The problem being attacked), Related Work, Proposed Solution, Preliminary Results and Conclusion.

The paper and research report may be written in Portuguese, English or Spanish. Both (Research Report and Short Paper) should be submitted in PDF format. Submissions in other formats will be discarded. The same shall happen for submissions whose manuscript exceeds the four page limit or which disregard the specified formatting. The submissions shall be made through SBC’s JEMS system through the "SVR 2016 - WTD" entry.
