Call for participation

We invite contributions on all aspects of Computing for Games and Digital Entertainment. Submissions can be of two types:

  • FULL PAPERS, about results from novel research (written in ENGLISH, from 7 up to 10 pages long) or;
  • SHORT PAPERS, describing work in progress (written in PORTUGUESE or ENGLISH, up to 4 pages long).

The SBgames submission is a two-steps process: Abstract first and, the Complete paper (either FULL or SHORT) a few days later. Abstracts should include goals, methods, results and conclusions and, limited from 100 to 250 words. Complete papers must abide to page limits.

All contributions must be original, unpublished work. Papers should be submitted electronically through JEMS system (

The authors of best papers will be awarded certificates and presented in a special session.


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings IF - at least one author register, attend and present the work at the symposium, and; - authors sign up a Copyright Transfer form.

Reviewing Process

Both abstract and complete submissions will be subjected to a double blind review, which means that both the reviewers´ and authors´ identities must be concealed from each other’s throughout the review process. Thus, authors MUST omit information that would allow their identification (names, affiliations, explicit self-references, project names, acknowledgment, etc).

Detailed instructions regarding formatting and templates can be found at the submissions section of this site or in a red box on this page.

Any work that has previously been published or has been simultaneously submitted in a similar form to any other conference or journal will be rejected. Papers submitted to more than one track of the Symposium will be automatically rejected. Papers that do not fit into page limits for each type of submission will be automatically rejected. Papers that do not abide to the formatting will be automatically rejected.
