Call for Pre-Symposium and Tutorials

Pre-Symposium

The Pre-Symposium, an event that precedes the main scientific meeting held since the seventh edition of the SVR that happened in São Paulo in 2004, aims at presenting an overview of the Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR): concepts, main characteristics of the VR and AR systems, technologies (hardware and software) and applications, as well as innovation trends using VR and AR, related to Internet of Things, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, among others. Thus, those who attend the PS, particularly students and professionals from other areas who are getting started with VR and AR technologies, will be able to take better advantage of the courses, lectures and other activities of the SVR.

A book on the fundamentals of VR and AR, a collaborative effort, coordinated and edited by the organizers of the Pre-Symposium since 2017, with the help of invited volunteer authors, will be updated. The book can be accessed here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_frL7Hwmj75FLFCwwmsZYoEMG0CmRdwD/view. Some authors will be chosen among professionals with recognized competence and knowledge in the area to update this book. This book can become a reference for introductory studies in VR and AR.

Would you like to collaborate with innovation trends using VR and AR?

If you would like to collaborate with the elaboration of this book, adding a new chapter,  and have experience in the use of VR and AR in other areas, such as Internet of Things, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, among others, send a proposal to the email eunice@ufmt.br and/or clebergimenez@utfpr.edu.br.

The proposal should be a single text file with the following information: the chapter title, authors (names and affiliations), abstract (150 – 300 words) and a brief description of the contents.

If the proposal is accepted, a chapter should be written following the SBC Book Chapter template for camera-ready text: SBC Book Template. The final version of the chapter must be submitted with the SBC Copyright Form.

Each accepted proposal must have one registered author with an Other Track Paper Registration Fee in order to be included in the book. At this time there is no provision of financial support to cover the expenses of the authors of selected Pre-Symposium proposals.

Important dates

  • Proposals submission deadline: August 31, 2020
  • Notification: September 05, 2020 
  • Full chapters and Copyright submission deadline: October 05, 2020

Tutorials

Tutorials aim at promoting the skills necessary to master recent technological developments and to disseminate areas of study, thus amplifying the participants’ education/research perspectives, in the academic and industrial levels. Therefore, tutorial proposals should be planned to present intermediary and advanced subjects related to the areas of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Duration of each tutorial: 2 hours (hands-on format). 

Authors will be chosen among researchers from academia and industry, and with recognized competence and knowledge in the area to send their proposals. The proposal form will be sent in the invitation to the authors. The proposal should be a single text file with the following information: the tutorial title, authors (names and affiliations), abstract (150 – 300 words) and a brief description of the contents. Proposals will be evaluated by relevance, innovation, originality, themes presented in previous SVR editions, author’s experience and quality of the content. 

If the proposal is accepted, a short paper will be written (2 – 4 pages), in English or Portuguese, following the IEEE guidelines – A4 size. The final version of the full paper will  be submitted with the SBC Copyright Form

As in the previous edition, the short paper will be published in the Extended Proceedings of the 22nd Symposium on Virtual and Augmented Reality in the SBC OpenLib (SOL), a  digital library maintained by the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC): https://sol.sbc.org.br/index.php/indice.

Registration costs will be covered for only ONE instructor from each selected tutorial.

Important dates

  • Short papers submission deadline: September 05, 2020
  • Notification: September 10, 2020
  • Camera-ready and Copyright submission deadline: September 18, 2020

No-Show and No-Registration Policy

No-show tutorial are defined as accepted tutorials submitted by authors who did not present the tutorials at the technical meeting. Each accepted proposal must have at least one registered author with an Other Track Paper Registration Fee. Each paper must have a different Other Track Paper Registration Fee. Otherwise, the tutorial is considered a no-registration. No-show and no-registration tutorials will not be included in the program and will be removed from the proceedings.
