Guidelines for paper submission


All papers submitted to STIL must be written in Portuguese, English, or Spanish.


We accept submissions of long and short papers. Long papers should describe complete work with significant results. Short papers may report work in progress, negative results, opinion papers, or application/demo papers.

Long papers may have up to eight (8) pages of content (including tables and pictures), additional pages of references, and presented orally. Short papers should have up to four (4) pages of content, additional pages of references, and will be presented as posters. Authors should also indicate whether they accept their long paper to be reallocated as a poster should the reviewers recommend.


Paper formatting must follow the SBC guidelines

Reviewing Process

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field. The reviewing process will be double-blind and therefore papers should not display any information regarding their authorship in the header or body of the text.
Self-references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., “As we previously showed (Silva, 2005) ...”, must be avoided. Instead, authors should use “Silva previously showed (Silva, 2005) ...”.

Submission Policy

By submitting papers to STIL 2021, authors agree that at least one author will register for the conference and present the paper in case of acceptance. Furthermore, it is the conference policy that at least one of the authors of accepted papers has to register before the deadline for sending the camera-ready paper.
Accepted papers whose author(s) do not register before the camera-ready deadline will not be included in the online proceedings.

Important Dates (all deadlines are 11:59 p.m. UTC-12:00 - anywhere on Earth!)
Submission System

Long and short papers should only be submitted in PDF files via the JEMS system by the deadline indicated above.
