XVIII Workshop on Scientific Initiation and Undergraduate Works (WTICG)

Free registration for the first author of each accepted paper!
Awards for the best papers


The Workshop on Scientific Initiation and Undergraduate Works (WTICG), an event integrated with the Brazilian Symposium on Information and Computational Systems Security (SBSeg), aims to encourage the participation of undergraduate students and recent graduates in the production and dissemination of scientific works on topics related to information security and computer systems.

Topics of interest

The same topics of interest as the Main Track of SBSeg.

Important Dates

  • Article registration: June 24, 2024
  • Article submission:  June 24, 2024
  • Author notification: August 01, 2024
  • Final version due: August 12, 2024
Author Guidelines

WTICG accepts submissions from undergraduate students currently enrolled or recent graduates who completed their studies at the end of the first or second semester of 2023. The student’s status must be confirmed with documentation issued by the university, college, or institute and submitted along with the paper.

Authors are invited to submit works such as Scientific Initiation (SI) projects, final course projects (FCP), or independent projects developed during undergraduate studies and supervised by one or more professors, either ongoing or completed in 2022 or 2023.

Completed works or those with relevant results should be submitted in the WTICG Full Papers track, while works in progress should be submitted in the WTICG Ongoing Works track.

Undergraduate students or recent graduates whose papers are accepted at WTICG will have their registration fees for SBSeg subsidized by the Student Grant program of the Special Commission on Information and Computational Systems Security (CESeg) of the Brazilian Computer Society, which aims to encourage student participation in WTICG.

Article submissions will be exclusively electronic through the link submissoes.sbc.org.br/sbseg2024 of SBC’s JEMS system. 

Articles can be written in Portuguese or English and must be submitted only in PDF format, following the SBC template for article publication, available on the SBC Portal (https://tinyurl.com/templates-sbc).

Articles submitted to WTICG must represent works with original content. Submitting articles under review or published in other conferences or journals is prohibited.

Categories and page limit:

Full Papers: 10 pages of content and up to 4 additional pages with attachments (not mandatory reading for the evaluation of the work) and references.

Ongoing Works: 5 pages of content and up to 2 additional pages with attachments (not mandatory reading for the evaluation of the work) and references.

The page limit above must be strictly adhered to by the authors, under penalty of early rejection without evaluation of the content. The text of the work must be thoroughly anonymized, avoiding any mention of authorship, even indirectly via references (for example), as the review process will be double-blind (authors and reviewers anonymous).

The following criteria will be considered in evaluating the papers: originality, relevance, presentation, results, and technical quality. 

Papers selected by the evaluation committee will be published (in digital format) provided that at least one of the authors is registered for the event and presents the paper.

An evaluation committee will select the best among the full and ongoing papers presented at the event by students or recent graduates.

To ensure the minimum quality of submitted papers, authors should read the **Authors’ Suggestions** (https://sbseg2024.ita.br/autores/sugestoes-de-texto/). These suggestions aim to guide young authors in writing and presenting quality papers. It represents a compendium of tips and suggestions, with pointers to other complementary documents. Ensuring the minimum quality of the work is the duty and responsibility of all authors.


We request that all authors review the new SBC CODE OF CONDUCT, available at https://sol.sbc.org.br/index.php/indice/conduta, especially the part related to the use of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Artifact instructions

As in the previous year, the Workshop on Scientific Initiation and Undergraduate Works (WTICG) will allow authors to submit (optionally) artifacts related to the submitted article, such as software, data, supplementary documentation, raw results, proofs of concept, models, detailed evaluations, benchmarks, etc.

The artifact will be submitted along with the article and evaluated by a specific committee, which will award the Available Artifacts (AvaA), Functional Artifacts (FunA), Sustainable Artifacts (SusA), and Reproducible Experiments (RepE) seals.

The artifact is an essential resource for research works, and its quality is as important as that of the scientific article itself.

The artifact evaluation process will be based on the evaluation process carried out by renowned conferences such as USENIX, CoNEXT, SIGCOMM, and EuroSys. For authors wishing to submit an artifact, it is essential to read the descriptions of the available seals, as well as the description of what is expected from an artifact.

Instructions and requirements for presenting artifacts can be found at https://sbseg2024.ita.br/autores/sugestoes-para-artefatos .


The best works will receive awards.

The selection of the best works will take into account the artifacts submitted. All accepted works with artifacts will be submitted to a specific technical committee to evaluate the quality of the artifacts, including aspects such as availability, functionality, reproducibility, and sustainability. Only works with a positive evaluation in at least two artifact aspects will compete for the best paper awards.
