Call for Technical Paper Contributions
The SIBGRAPI 2021 Main Track is the conventional conference submission track. We invite technical paper contributions to this track for works that present original unpublished research in the areas of computer graphics, computer vision, image processing, and/or pattern recognition. Manuscripts submitted to this track must be in English, should be between six and eight pages, and must be prepared following the SIBGRAPI 2021 IEEE template available below. All papers will pass through a confidential and double-blind review process by at least three experts in the topic of the work, and thus all submitted manuscripts must be anonymized. All papers accepted in this track are scheduled and must be presented at the conference. Please review our no-show and no-registration policy below or at this link.
The final conference program will only include accepted papers where at least one author registered with full registration rate for the conference. For accepted papers where at least one author is already registered at the full rate, this fulfills the obligation for up to one (1) paper (i.e., each paper must be associated with a different full registration). All papers included in the proceedings of the conference are submitted to IEEE Xplore and also to the SIBGRAPI Digital Library Archive maintained by the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE, Brazil).
Pattern Recognition Letters Special Section
SIBGRAPI 2021 announces the selection of the four Best Papers on Pattern Recognition and Related Fields from the Main Track. Authors of the selected papers, according to the General and Program Chairs, will be invited to provide an extended version of their work, to be published in a Special Section of the Pattern Recognition Letters journal, following the instructions available at https://www.journals.elsevier.com/pattern-recognition-letters/.
All papers for the SIBGRAPI 2021 Main Track must be submitted electronically. The electronic submission system is accessible at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/SIBGRAPI2021/. Please be sure to "Select Your Role" as "Author" in the menu above.
Submitted manuscripts must be written in English, should be between six and eight pages, and must be prepared following the SIBGRAPI IEEE formatting guidelines. The electronic manuscript must be submitted in the Portable Document Format (PDF file). The SIBGRAPI 2021 IEEE LaTeX template is available through this link. (Please use \finalfalse to generate your anonymous PDF for review, which includes line numbers.)
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). Please do not change the font size, even if it helps to comply with the page limit! The illustrations of the paper should be generated either truly vectorial or rasterized with at least 300dpi. Manuscripts that deviate from these formatting guidelines are subject to immediate rejection.
Once 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 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 during the review process, authors must prepare their manuscript as follows:
- Funding sources must not be acknowledged anywhere in the submitted paper.
- 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 online paper registration system, for instance, by including the command \finalfalse in your LaTeX source file.
- 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.
- You must also use care in referring to related past work, particularly your own. For example, avoid mentions to your work as "In our previous work [1,2]...", and 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.
All accepted papers are scheduled for presentation according to the schedule defined for the conference program. More information about paper presentations will be sent to the authors of accepted papers.
No-show and No-registration Policy
No-show papers are defined as accepted papers submitted by authors who subsequently did not present the paper at the technical meeting. No-registration papers are defined as accepted papers where at least one author did not register with full paid registration rate for the conference, where each paper must be associated with a different full paid registration. No-show and no-registration papers will not be included in the program and will be removed from the proceedings and from the IEEE Xplore.
