Call for Technical Paper Contributions

The SIBGRAPI 2018 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 We invite technical paper contributions to this track for works that present original unpublished research in the areas of computer graphics, computer vision, image processing, and/or pattern recognition.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 2018 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 (oral or poster presentation). 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 are scheduled for oral or poster presentation at SIBGRAPI 2018. Previous proceedings of SIBGRAPI are available online at IEEE Xplore and also at the SIBGRAPI Digital Library Archive maintained by the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE, Brazil).

Submission Instructions

All papers for the SIBGRAPI 2018 Main Track must be submitted electronically before 23:59 PDT on Monday, June 18th, 2018. The electronic submission system is accessible at 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 2018 IEEE LaTeX template is available through this link.

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). The bibliography should be formatted with a 9pt font. 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.

Anonymity Requirements

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:

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.

Information for Presenters

All accepted papers are scheduled for either oral or poster presentation according to the schedule defined for the conference program.

The oral presentations must fit in 15 minutes, with additional 5 minutes for questions. Please rehearse your presentation to make sure it fits in this time slot in a relaxed pace. A rushed presentation will create more stress for you and will not be compelling. Slides and presentation must be in English. Please arrive in the session room at least 15 minutes before the session begins. Session chairs will help you test your presentation slides using the provided audiovisual equipment.

The posters must fit in a space of 95cm (width) x 210cm (height). The poster support has a hanger on its top that will be used to hang the poster, and thus posters must have a suitable hanging location or attachment.

No-show and No-registration Policy

No-show papers are defined as accepted papers submitted by authors who subsequently did not present the paper in-person (no videos, no remote cast) at the technical meeting. No-registration papers are defined as accepted papers where at least one author did not register with full registration rate for the conference, where each paper must be associated with a different full registration. No-show and no-registration papers will be removed from the proceedings and from the IEEE Xplore.
