SIBGRAPI - Conference on Graphics, Patterns and Images is an international conference annually promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). Since 2003, special efforts have been made to publish extended versions of the best papers in special issues of well-qualified journals of the related areas.
SIBGRAPI 2016 will be held on October 4-7, in the city of São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil. One of the leading industrial and research centers in Latin America, the city is located in the Paraíba Valley, between the two most active production and consumption regions in the country, São Paulo (80 km) and Rio de Janeiro (320 km). It is the main city of the Metropolitan Region of the Paraiba Valley and the Northern Coast.
In 2016, SIBGRAPI will have, for the first time, an alternative track for paper submission to an special issue in Computers & Graphics Journal (CAG). The first round of revision for CAG track will happen earlier, providing enough time for authors of rejected papers to revise and submit them to the conference main track. Also, there will be an excellent opportunity for publishing industrial based applications, with the return of the Workshop on Industry Applications (WIA) that did not happen since 2012 SIBGRAPI edition.
