*Incomplete or late submissions will not be considered. All submissions will be acknowledged.

Warning! All deadlines expire at

The following categories of tutorials will be accepted: elementary, intermediate, and advanced.
Elementary tutorials should complement the basic undergraduate curriculum in Engineering, Computer Science, and related areas, to entice students into following graduate studies in CG, CV, IP, or PR. Instructors should not assume that the audience has basic knowledge in these areas.
Intermediate tutorials are targeted to students, professionals, and researchers who wish to learn advanced techniques in CG, CV, IP, and PR. Instructors may assume that the attendees are familiar with basic notions of mathematics and programming related to the subject.
Advanced tutorials should cover state-of-the-art research, recent developments, emerging topics, and novel applications in CG, CV, IP, and PR.

Tutorial Selection:

All proposals will be blindly reviewed by at least two experts in the topic and will be judged by:

  • relevance for the conference;
  • expected size of the audience;
  • potential to attract participants to the conference;
  • originality;
  • and qualification of the instructors in the topic of the tutorial.

Author’s instructions:

Tutorial proposals should be submitted through the submission site. Please, send your proposal up to 8 pages in PDF format using the SIBGRAPI IEEE LaTeX template available at the submission instructions page. The proposals should be written in English, and contain the following information:

  • First Page:
    • Title
    • Level (elementary, intermediate or advanced)
    • How many hours will be required (3h or 6h)
    • Abstract
  • Next 7 pages:
    • Motivation
    • Target audience
    • Interest for the CV, IP, CG and PR community;
    • List of the topics to be presented, including:
      • Estimated duration,
      • Subtopics,
      • Relevant literature.
    • Presentation requirements: equipment and/or software;
    • Short biography of the instructors, including relevant experience in the topic of the tutorial
    • Plan for presentation (include information on who will present the tutorial)


Each tutorial must be presented by at least one of the authors (please include this information in the submission). Handouts must be prepared to be distributed to the tutorials' participants. Instructions for the creation of the handouts will be given to the authors of the accepted tutorials at a later date.

Authors of the selected tutorials will be invited to prepare a survey paper in English, in the tutorial's topic, for the electronic version of the conference proceedings. This paper will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. A survey paper is a manuscript with an introduction, a structured presentation of the topic, and conclusions indicating trends, applications, and directions for future work. This paper will be peer reviewed as well before publication.
