The Workshop of Theses and Dissertations (WTD) aims at motivating 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.
Students who defended their M.Sc or Ph.D. after 01/01/2020 and did not present their final work in previous editions of the SIBGRAPI WTD.
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.
Awards for the best Ph.D. and M.Sc. works will be given based on the scores of the papers (submission system) and the opinion of a small committee that will evaluate the presentations. To be eligible for an award, the student must present the paper in the WTD "virtual poster session" (see Presentation Format below). Ph.D. works must be presented in English. M.Sc. works may be presented in English or Portuguese, but English is preferable.
Both M.Sc. and Ph.D. works must be written in English. The text should follow the SIBGRAPI formatting guidelines with the following adjustments:
Papers should be submitted through the CMT system at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/WTDSIBGRAPI2021, together with their respective M.Sc. dissertation or Ph.D. thesis in PDF file format (accepted works must submit a camera-ready paper as well).
The presentation of an accepted paper will follow a fully virtual format combining:
During the live virtual Q&A session, the student must have some supporting material to illustrate the work through screen-sharing. We recommend the use of the same materials used to produce the pre-recorded video (eg, PDF or Powerpoint slides). But, it is important to note that the live virtual session is not a presentation, and instead will mimic a "virtual poster session" with Questions & Answers (Q&A).
The details on the layout, duration, and deadline for submission of the pre-recorded video, as well as the schedule of the live sessions, will be sent to the authors of accepted papers.
Accepted works must be presented in the WTD virtual poster session. Presentation guidelines will be sent to the authors of accepted papers.
