Warning: incomplete or late submissions will not be considered.

The Virtual and Augmented Reality Graduate Workshop (WTD SVR 2021) provides a unique opportunity for students to discuss their master’s dissertations and doctoral theses. The aim of the Workshop is to allow the works to be evaluated by researchers with expertise in the SVR topics of interest. The students may further benefit from all the input gathered during the Workshop, which may lead to an improved work, as a result of the contributions provided by experts, other graduate students, as well as the industry and academic participants of SVR 2021.

Besides the contributions from such an expert audience, the workshop participants will be exposed to an array of research topics being exploited in graduate programs from Brazil and abroad. Moreover, the brainstorming sessions may help some students to define their research topics. In addition, WTD offers the opportunity for the establishment of new academic collaborations among students and groups that share common research interests in the virtual and augmented reality areas.

Acceptable Submissions

Submissions to the Workshop should be preferably ongoing work. However, WTD SVR 2021 will also receive papers describing finished dissertations or thesis even if they have been submitted to the full papers track of SVR 2021. 

Submission Instructions

Among the various ACM paper templates, make sure that you use the “SigConf” version, i.e., use “sample-sigconf.tex” if you use LaTeX, and “Interim layout.docx” if you use MS Word for preparing your manuscript. The ACM LaTeX template is also available on Overleaf platform.

The text should describe the (expected) contributions of the work clearly. The paper (up to 2 pages including references) should be organized as follows: Introduction, Motivation (the problem being explored), Related Work, Proposed Solution, Preliminary Results, and Conclusions. The introduction should also contain the SVR topics to which the work is related to and the category (MSc dissertation or PhD thesis).

They will be published in the digital proceedings of the WTD SVR 2021 at SOL, the Brazilian Computing Society OpenLib, or in SVR 2021 proceedings in case it has been accepted for this venue. A panel of experts will choose the best WTD paper in each category (MSC dissertation and PhD thesis).
