CALL FOR THE WORKSHOP OF UNDERGRADUATE WORKS (WUW)

The main goals of the Workshop of Undergraduate Works (WUW) are to motivate undergraduate students involved in research projects on Computer Graphics, Image Processing, Computer Vision and Data Visualization to attend the SIBGRAPI conference and to provide an opportunity for them to present and discuss their research with their peers and with experts in the area. Any student currently enrolled in an undergraduate program or who graduated in the past 12 months can submit a contribution. The manuscript can be authored by one or more students, but it must include the research supervisor in the list of authors. Thus, each paper will have at least two authors (the student and the supervisor). Accepted manuscripts will be presented in poster sessions.

Selection criteria

The WUW program committee will evaluate the submitted manuscripts with regard to the following criteria: originality, technical quality, research contribution and presentation. While the scientific contribution of the submission may be less significant than that of a manuscript submitted to the full papers track, it is expected to include a complete work with methodology and results. Submissions reporting no results, even of a preliminary nature, will be rejected. Awards will be given to the three best papers presented at the WUW poster session by one of the student authors. Awarded authors will receive a certificate, as well as a special recommendation for publication of an extended version of their manuscript at REIC, the Revista Eletrônica de Iniciação Científica, an electronic journal published by SBC.

Instruction to the authors

Submissions can be written in English, Portuguese or Spanish, and the text should follow the SIBGRAPI 2018 formatting guidelines for main full track papers, but with the following adjustments: the names of the authors should not be omitted (anonymity is not required); students must appear as the first authors and the supervisor as the last author, with eventual co-advisors and other collaborators in between. Submissions must include an abstract in Portuguese or Spanish and an abstract in English. Manuscripts are limited to 4 double-column pages and should be submitted through the WUW CMT system. The undergraduate student author of accepted manuscripts will be asked to present a proof of enrollment in an undergraduate program for 2018, or a certificate of graduation in the past 12 months.

Poster preparation

Simultaneous submissions to the main track and WUW are not allowed, and will be rejected without review. Nonetheless, undergraduate students who are first authors of papers accepted in the main track can apply to present a poster in the WUW poster session and become eligible to WUW awards, without being required to submit a manuscript to WUW. The undergraduate student author will be asked to present the paper acceptance letter in the main track, and also a proof of enrollment in an undergraduate program for 2018, or a certificate of graduation in the past 12 months.

Submissions to WuW and Main Track

The posters must fit in a space of 95cm (width) x 210cm (height). A1 format, portrait orientation, is strongly recommended. The use of small fonts on the text production is not recommended. The poster support has a hanger on its top that can be used to hang the poster. It is not necessary to include the poster in the CMT system.
