Guidelines for paper submission
STIL 2023 accepts submissions of long and short papers. Long papers should describe finished, original, unpublished work with significant results, and will be presented orally. Short papers may report work in progress, negative results, opinion papers, or applications/demos, and will be presented as posters.
All papers submitted to STIL must be written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.
Long papers may have up to eight (8) pages of content (including tables and figures), and additional pages of references. Short papers should have up to four (4) pages of content and additional pages of references. Authors will be asked whether they agree to have their long paper relocated as a poster, if recommended by reviewers.
Paper formatting must follow the SBC guidelines available at the SBC website and also in Overleaf .
All papers submitted to STIL will be reviewed by 3 experts in the field. The reviewing process will be double-blind, and therefore papers should not contain any information regarding their authorship in the header or body of the text. Self-references that reveal the author’s identities must be avoided. For example, instead of “As we previously showed (Silva, 2005) ...” authors should use “Silva (2005) previously showed ...”.
By submitting papers to STIL 2023, all authors agree that at least one of them will register for the conference and present the paper in case of acceptance. This registration must take place before the deadline for the camera-ready version of the paper and must be made in the category established by the organization.
The following rules and guidelines are intended to protect the integrity of the double-blind review and ensure that submissions are reviewed fairly. The rules refer to the period of anonymity, which goes from 1 month before the submission deadline until the date your work is accepted or rejected. Works withdrawn during this period will no longer be subject to these rules.
You may not make a non-anonymous version of your paper available online to the general community (eg, via a pre-print server) during the anonymity period. Versions include papers that have essentially the same scientific content, but possibly differ in minor details (including title and structure) and/or length.
If you published a non-anonymous version of your paper online before the anonymity period began, you may submit an anonymous version to the conference. The submitted version must not refer to the non-anonymous version, and you must inform the programme chairs that there is a non-anonymous version.
You may not update the non-anonymous version during the anonymity period and we ask that you do not advertise it on social media or take other actions that further compromise the double-blind review during the anonymity period.
You can make an anonymous version of your article available (for example, on OpenReview or ArXiv), even during the anonymity period.
Please note that while you are not prohibited from making a non-anonymous version available online prior to the start of the anonymity period, this makes the double-blind review more difficult to maintain and therefore we encourage you to wait until the end of the anonymity period.
Important dates (all deadlines are 11:59 p.m. UTC-12:00 - anywhere on Earth!)
Deadline for long and short paper submission: June 25, 2023 July 02, 2023
Notification to authors: July 31, 2023
Camera-ready versions due: August 15, 2023
Long and short papers should be submitted as PDF files via the JEMS system (https://jems.sbc.org.br/) by the deadline indicated above.
