Call for the Workshop of Industry Applications

The Workshop of Industry Applications (WIA) welcomes submissions describing solutions based on graphics, patterns and images for industry applied problems. Contributions are expected to feature innovative applications based on state-of-the-art methods, tools and techniques related to interactive graphics, image processing, computer vision, visualization and virtual reality, among other imaging modalities. They are also encouraged to be the result of applied and exploratory research.
All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the WIA (available in electronic format) and scheduled for oral and demo presentations.

Instruction to the authors

The paper should be 6 to 8 pages long, including all figures and references. All papers will be double blind reviewed by two experts.

All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must comply with the SIBGRAPI formatting guidelines with the following adjustments:

  • The paper can be submitted in English, Portuguese or Spanish. All texts must also include, at least, the abstract in English.
  • The acceptance of a work implies that at least one of its authors will register for the conference and will present it.

Review Process

All papers will be double blind reviewed by two experts, and all papers recommended for acceptance by both reviewers will be accepted and scheduled for oral and demo presentations. The review process starts briefly after the submission of the paper and other optional supporting materials (e.g., video). The paper is then distributed to the reviewers, who will evaluate the paper, share their comments with the authors, decide on its acceptance, and eventually require corrections.

The authors of an accepted paper will then be required to upload the final version of the paper. In order to guarantee the publication, the paper must be presented in the event according to the defined schedule.

Oral and Demo Presentation

Each accepted paper will be presented orally, in English or Portuguese, during the event. We strongly recommend that it be presented in English (slides and, if possible, orally) due to the anticipated number of international participants (of both WIA and SIBGRAPI). The oral presentation session lasts 15 minutes, with additional 5 minutes for questions and discussions. Authors will also be given the opportunity to demo their solutions to all researchers and professionals attending the conference.


The paper submissions must be done through CMT system.
