About WTDR:
WTDR 2021 is part of LARS/SBR 2021, which will be held virtually on October 14-15, 2021. WTDR provides an opportunity for PhD and MSc students in Brazil to present their ongoing and/or recently concluded research with a panel of established researchers in Robotics.The workshop aims to:
About CTDR:
CTDR 2021 will take place in parallel to WTDR 2021. The main goals of CTDR are to divulge and award the best academic work in Robotics concluded in Brazilian Universities from October, 2019 to September, 2021. CTDR expects papers with concluded work, with evaluation and results. Selected works will be presented (virtually) and judged during ROBOTICA 2021. Notice that in the submission phase, the main object of judgment is the paper; while during the conference, the main object of judgment is the full thesis or dissertation (that is submitted along with the paper).

Important Note: Papers submitted to CTDR and WTDR should differ from other publications of the author, this includes submissions to LARS 2021. Please make sure that your paper is not a copy/partial copy of your previously published work, thus avoiding auto-plagiarism issues.

Paper Submission and Review:
Papers can be written in English or in Portuguese and must not exceed 10 pages (WTDR) and 12 pages (CTDR), including title, abstract, all tables, figures, and references. Authors should use the style file of SBC. More detailed information can be found at: SBC template.

We expect submission of papers to WTDR with research purposes and appropriate motivation, literature review, and methods. Results (preliminary, at least) are desirable, but not necessary. Submission to CTDR expects papers with concluded work, with evaluation and results.

Papers should include the following information in the first page after the abstract: student level (MSc or PhD) and expected date of conclusion or the date of conclusion (CTDR). In addition, include the name of the advisor (and co-advisors) as co-authors.

Submissions violating the formatting guidelines will be excluded from the reviewing process. Only papers in pdf format will be accepted.

Papers must be submitted using the JEMS system: https://jems.sbc.org.br .

The five best papers submitted to the CTDR on each category (M.Sc. and Phd) will be presented at the CTDR while the remaining will be presented together with the accepted WTDR papers. All WTDR and CTDR papers will be published in online proceedings, with DOI and ISBN, at SOL - SBC.

As additional motivation, at least one of the top three works/authors from the CTDR will be awarded with an invitation to publish in the Journal of Intelligent & Robotic Systems - JINT.

At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered and attend the virtual conference to present the work. We recommend that the students present their works, as the events may be a valuable experience for them.
