SIBGRAPI 2021: October 18-22, 2021
All deadlines are 23:59 PDT.
Warning: incomplete or late submissions will not be considered.
The main goal of the Workshop of Undergraduate Works (WUW) is to motivate undergraduate students involved in research projects to attend the SIBGRAPI conference and to have the opportunity to discuss their research with experts in Computer Graphics, Image Processing, and Computer Vision. The WUW provides the perfect environment for undergraduate students to have a first academic experience including the presentation of their work for a scientific audience. Papers may be submitted by any student currently enrolled in an undergraduate program or by those who have graduated in the past 12 months. The manuscript must have at least two authors, namely, the undergraduate student and his advisor (the professor leading the research). Additional coauthors are also allowed, including other students of any level. Accepted papers should be presented at the event as described below.
The WUW Program Committee will evaluate the submitted papers regarding the following criteria: originality, technical quality, research contribution, and presentation. Submissions are expected to describe a complete work with methodology and results, although the scientific contribution may be weaker than the one required for the SIBGRAPI Main Track. Submissions without at least preliminary results will be rejected. Awards in the form of certificates will be given for the best papers presented at the WUW. Only works presented by a student author are eligible for an award.
Submissions can be written in English or Portuguese, and the manuscript should follow the SIBGRAPI 2021 formatting guidelines for the Main Track, but with the following adjustments. The WUW is not double-blind (i.e., papers should not be anonymized), therefore, the names of the authors should not be omitted as it would be in the Main Track. The student must appear as the first author and the advisor as the last one, with eventual co-advisors and other collaborators in between. Submissions in Portuguese should also include an abstract in English right after the Portuguese abstract. Papers should have from 4 to 6 double-column pages and should be submitted electronically by accessing https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/SIBRAPIWUW2021.
Simultaneous submissions to the SIBGRAPI Main Track and the WUW are not allowed and will lead to rejection without review.
The presentation of an accepted paper will follow a fully virtual format combining:
During the live virtual Q&A session, the presenting author 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). Thus the presenting author must be available in the online platform for the whole duration of the Workshop Q&A (in a time block of around 3 hours).
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.
