Call for Workshop on Industry Applications

The Workshop on Industry Applications (WGARI) welcomes submissions describing solutions based on graphics, patterns, and images, for industry applied problems. Contributions are expected to feature an innovative use of original or known methods and/or tools from interactive graphics and visualization, machine vision, and image processing. They are also encouraged to be the result of applied and exploratory research.

All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the WGARI (available in electronic format) and scheduled for oral and demo presentations. The paper should be 6 to 8 pages long (in the IEEE format). All papers will be double blindly reviewed by two experts.

Invited Speaker - Alisson Sol (Microsoft, USA)

Title: Computer Vision in the Kinect for Windows

Abstract: Originally launched for the Xbox as an extension device for games and entertainment, the Kinect is the fastest-selling consumer electronics device in history. This presentation will describe the problems and solutions of migrating to the Windows environment one of the most complex algorithms currently in large-scale use. In a great example of direct application of academic results in image processing and machine learning, a minimum of 320x240 pixels with depth information are processed 30 times per second, allowing applications to be developed on top of the abstraction that one or two people are ``seen'' by the computer.

ASol Short Bio - Alisson Sol has many years of experience in software development, having hired and managed several software teams that shipped many applications, with focus on image processing and ERP systems. He has been the founder of 3 software companies, published several technical papers, and has a few patents. He has a B.Sc. in Physics and a M.Sc. in Computer Science by the Federal University of Minas Gerais, in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil, and a General Management Certificate by the University of Cambridge, in the United Kingdom. Currently, Alisson works as Engineering Lead for the Computer Vision team of the Kinect for Windows Business Unit at Microsoft, in Redmond, WA, USA.

Review Process

All papers will be double blindly reviewed by two experts, and all papers recommended for acceptance for both reviewers will be accepted and scheduled for oral and demo presentations. The review process starts briefly after the submission of the paper and other material (e.g., video). The paper is then distributed to the reviewers, who will evaluate the paper, share their comments with the authors, decide on the paper’s acceptance, and eventually require corrections.

The authors of an accepted paper then upload their final version of the paper and its Publication is validated by the oral and demo presentations in the event.

Author's instruction

The papers must be written in either English or Portuguese, formatted according to the IEEE standard. They should have at least 6 and at most 8 pages, including bibliography and illustrations, and should not contain any information that could identify the author in the submission phase. The authors are strongly encouraged to also submit a video demoing the work described in their paper. Further instructions are available at the submission instruction’s page.

Authors should address and stress the following points while preparing their manuscripts:
  • Degree of Innovation (How innovative is the work with respect to the use of leading-edge graphics technology and methods?),
  • Relevance (What is the social, economic, and/or environmental impact of the work? Has it been measured? Can an evidence be provided?),
  • Contributions (What are the tools resulting from the work? Are they in commercial or industrial use? Have they been patented?), and
  • Presentation (Is the paper well-written, -organized, and -illustrated? Are the important references cited? Is the paper accompanied by a video demoing the solution described in the paper?).
Papers are not required to describe an original technique, method, or device, but originality is certainly welcome as well.

Oral and Demo Presentation

Each accepted paper will be presented orally, in English or Portuguese, during the event. We strongly suggest authors(s) to present in English (slides and, if possible, orally) due to the anticipated number of international participants (of both WGARI and SIBGRAPI). The oral presentations must fit in 15 minutes, with additional 5 minutes for questions. The authors will also be given the opportunity to demo their solutions for the SIBGRAPI participants.
