Call for PhD Workshop Virtual

The SIGraDi PhD Workshop is a unique opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their research proposals in the CAAD field and related topics. The workshop aims to promote interaction between doctoral students and more experienced researchers and collaboration between doctoral students working on similar topics. Student enrollments at any stage of the work are welcome.
The workshop will take place on November 7th and 8th from 9am to 11:30am (GMT -3:00). It is planned to discuss up to 10 proposals. In the case that more than 10 proposals are approved in the review process, the ones that represent the diversity of topics in the area will be selected for presentation. The remaining candidates are welcome to attend the workshop as listeners.

The Committee will select the best presentation, whose author will receive a certificate and a SIGraDi Conference attendee registration (or reimbursement), which includes one year’s membership of the society. In addition, the best presentations could be selected for the Global PhD Workshop.

Submission Guidelines
The research proposal should describe and contextualize the problem, present its
relevance, the methods that will be used to develop it and expected
contribution to the field.
Proposals can be written in English, Portuguese or Spanish and may have a maximum of 2,000 words. Entries must be uniquely authored, and the name of the advisor should be stated in the proposal.

Workshop participants can also send articles to the SIGraDi congress, even if the title or content is similar.

Review Process
The review process will take into account the quality of the research proposal and academic writing. 
Presentations and discussions will be in English, Portuguese or Spanish, but the final slides should preferably be in English.
