Call for Workshop of Theses and Dissertations

The Workshop of Theses and Dissertations (WTD) aims at motivating discussions about the graduate-level research on topics covered by SIBGRAPI among graduate students, recently graduated students, and senior researchers. Researchers who have recently concluded their graduate studies are cordially invited to submit a paper to the SIBGRAPI WTD.

Who can submit?

Students who defended their M.Sc or Ph.D. after 01/01/2016 and did not present their final work in previous editions of the SIBGRAPI WTD.

Selection criteria

The WTD program committee will evaluate the submitted works with respect to the following criteria: originality, technical quality, contribution to the research area, and clarity of presentation.

Best work awards

Awards for the best Ph.D. and M.Sc. works will be given based on the scores of the papers (submission system) and the opinion of a small committee that will evaluate the posters.

To be eligible for an award, the student must present the paper.

Ph.D. works must be presented in English. M.Sc. works may be presented in English or Portuguese, but English is preferable.
