for Tutorial Proposals
Tutorial Proposals: May
The goal of the tutorials
at SIBGRAPI 2005 is to offer to the participants an opportunity
to acquire technical knowledge in the areas of Computer Graphics
and Image Processing, and/or applicability to other areas.
Tutorial proposals will be judged by:
* their relevance for
the SIBGRAPI 2005
* the expected size of the audience and their potential to
attract participants to the Symposium
* the validity, usefulness, and structure of the contents
* their originality
* the qualification of the instructors in the topic
Types of Tutorials
The tutorials may be
elementary, advanced, state-of-the-art or hands-on, and may
take 3 or 6 hours, regardless of the level.
- Elementary Tutorials: Tutorials
in this category typically complement the basic undergraduate
curriculum in computer science and help to attract students
for graduate studies in CG & IP. The instructors should
not assume that the audience has basic knowledge in CG
& IP. Elementary tutorials should be presented and
have handouts in
- Advanced Tutorials: Tutorials in
this category are targetted to students, professionals
and researchers in CG&IP that wish to know advanced
techniques to use in their work. Instructors may assume
that the audience has basic notions of mathematics, numerical
methods, programming, etc., and about CG & IP. Advanced
tutorials may be presented in Portuguese or English, with
handouts in any of these languages.
- State-of-the-art Tutorials: This
type of tutorial should cover recent developments in CG&PI
that may have great impact in the future of the area.
State-of-the-art tutorials may be presented in Portuguese
or English, with handouts in any of these languages.
- Hands-on Tutorials: Tutorials in
this category should be target towards undergradute computer
science students covering basic topics in Computer Graphics
or Image Processing. Some typical examples include (but
are not limited to): introduction to computer graphics
using OpenGL, OpenGL advanced features, Web 3D using X3D,
introduction to visualization, introduction to image processing
using Matlab, Mathematica, Maple, IDL, ENVI, Python, etc.;
elements of mathematical morphology, and introduction
to medical images. State-of-the-art tutorials may be presented
in Portuguese or English, with handouts in any of these
It may be useful to look
at the tutorials presented in previous years:
How to Submit
Tutorial proposals should
be submitted by e-mail to email@example.com,
in plain text or in attached PDF files. Please, do *NOT* send
The proposal should contain
the following information:
Level (hands-on, elementary,
advanced or state-of-the-art)
Duration (3 or 6 hours)
Abstract (half page)
Motivation, target audience,
and interest for the CG&IP community (up to 1 page)
Summary, presenting an
itemized list of the topics to be presented (up to 2 pages).
For each topic, indicate the estimated duration, the basic
and most relevant literature, and its subtopics.
Curriculum Vitae of the
instructors, with full name, address, e-mail, institution,
education, publications, and experience in the topic of the
Material to be distributed
to the participants, such as survey paper (recommended), slides,
images, animations, books, etc. This material is optional
at the submission, but its inclusion is strongly recommended
as it allows a better assessment of the supporting material
to be used during the course. For hands-on tutorials, the
software to be used should be specified (licenses and installation
are responsability of the intructors). See below.
required (for hands-on tutorials, specify computers configuration
The tutorial could be
prepared either in English or Portugue.
The complete submission
should be received by 22th May, 2005. Incomplete or late submissions
will not be considered. All submissions will be promptly acknowledged.
Accepted tutorials will be announced by 20th June, 2005
Instructors of the tutorials
selected for SIBGRAPI 2005 should prepare written material
to suport the lectures, in the form of a survey paper (preferably)
and/or handouts. This material will be reproduced in black
& white and distributed to the participants of the tutorial.
o Survey paper is a paper having 15-30 pages, with an introduction,
a structured presentation of the topic, and conclusions indicating
trends, applications, and directions for future work.
Survey papers will be
peer-reviewed and published in a special issue of RITA (Revista
de Informática Teórica e Aplicada, http://www.inf.ufrgs.br/~revista/),
a journal edited by the
Informatics Institute of UFRGS. See the information for authors
for instructions on how to format survey papers, including
LaTeX and Word styles (http://www.inf.ufrgs.br/~revista/Inform.html).
Survey papers should
be sent no later than 20th July, 2005 by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org,
in attached PDF files.
o Handout is a copy of the slides or transparencies used during
the presentation of the course at SIBGRAPI 2005. Handouts
are optional if a survey paper is prepared.
The authors should provide
a file with 4 slides per page in landscape. The pages should
be numbered and contain the footer "SIBGRAPI 2005 Tutorial".
We recommend the use of font Times 14 pt, or bigger, for better
legibility of slides and notes.
Handouts should be sent
no later than July 20th, 2005 by e-mail to email@example.com
in attached PDF files. Please, do *NOT* send Word documents.
All printed material
distributed to the participants of tutorials will be available
on the SIBGRAPI 2005 web site, as well as other material provided
by the instructors such as images, animations, and other texts.
Support to Instructors
A classroom for 60 students
will be reserved for each course. Standard presentation equipment
(overhead projector, 35 mm slide projector, video player,
screen, PC, data show) will be available upon request.
