Call for Papers - SIBGRAPI'98


You are invited to submit contributions and participate
in SIBGRAPI'98, the 1998 International Symposium on
Computer Graphics, Image Processing and Vision. The 11th
edition of the SIBGRAPI, the most prestigious Brazilian
series of meetings in related areas, now in its first
international version, SIBGRAPI'98 will take place at
IMPA (Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics), in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in October 1998. The Proceedings
of SIBGRAPI'98 are expected to be published by the
IEEE Computer Society.

Two basic categories of paper submissions are being
full papers (8 pages) and
short papers (4 pages).

While full papers should report original and reasonably
mature work, short papers may describe ongoing work,
applications, and undergraduate research.

Full papers should be written in English and presented
orally in English or as posters (English or Portuguese).
Short papers should be written in English or Portuguese
and presented as posters.

Full and short papers will be published electronically
(Web and, possibly, CD-ROM), but the Proceedings will
include only the former (i.e. full papers).

Prospective authors, especially those who have not
published in SIBGRAPI, who want to have a preliminary
feedback on their submission should fill the SUBMISSION
PROPOSAL FORM (to be found at the end of this text), and
send it to:

no later than 25th Jan 1998.

Please observe the following:
* The submission of a SUBMISSION PROPOSAL FORM is
optional, i.e. authors who do not want to send this
proposal can still send the full version of their
manuscript for assessment by 24th Apr. 1998 ;

* Every effort will be made in order to have the full
version of the manuscript assessed by the same
referees who firstly analysed the respective

* The approval of a SUBMISSION PROPOSAL by no means
implies that the respective manuscript will be
necessarily accepted in further assessment rounds.

Authors are advised to refer to the SIBGRAPI'96 and 97
homepages (addresses below), in order to familiarize with
the adopted style and format.


The instructions to authors will be available futurely
from the SIBGRAPI'98 homepage, to be found at:

A number of Panels are being expected as part of the
SIBGRAPI'98 programme. Such panels, which can be short
(2 hours) or long (4 hours). Panels may be used for
discussion on educational issues, technology,
industrial application, teaching aids, as well as for
discussion and evaluation of distinct approaches to a
same problem.

Panels are proposed by a coordinator, who is allowed to
invite the other participants, each of which is
expected to deliver a 10 to 20 minutes presentation,
followed by questions and debate.

Panel proposals, to be sent to:

no later than 10th May 1998, should include:

(a) title;
(b) name of coordinator and participants;
(c) objectives;
(d) abstract of each planned presentation; and
(e) resume of coordinator and participants,
emphasizing expertise in the related subjects.

The assessment of the proposals will take into account
the following aspects:

(a) relevance;
(b) potential to attract interest from the audience;
(c) originality; and
(d) experience of the coordinator and participants
in related areas.

Major Topics of interest (papers and panels) include but
are not limited to the following:

Geometric modeling
Computational geometry
Image synthesis
Graphical user interfaces
Animation and Simulation
Virtual reality
Multimedia and Hypermedia
Graphical databases
Medical imaging
Mathematical Morphology
Computer architectures for Computer Graphics,
Image Processing, and Vision
Statistical signal processing
Multiresolution signal processing and analysis
Multidimensional signal processing and analysis
