Evaluation process

Each proposal submitted to the SBSeg 2017 will be evaluated by three or more members from the evaluation committee. The following criteria will be considered: relevance and actuality of the topic, technical quality of the proposal ans experience of the authors with the proposed topic. The best proposals in distinct themes will be accepted for presentation and publication.

In order to guarantee the diversity of the offered tutorial, the select proposals will cover distinct topics. This way, in the case that two or more submitted proposals cover the same topic (or too superimposed themes), only the best proposal will be selected, following the committee criteria.

Text book

The selected proposal authors should produce a text (book chapter) in Portuguese containing between 40 and 50 pages each. The texts will be published in the form of chapters in the Minicursos SBSeg 2017 book, to be distributed to the event participants. The book chapter template is available at the SBC web portal.
