The main goal of the SBSeg Short Courses is to address relevant topics that are not usually taught in the curriculum of undergraduate courses, in addition to arousing interest in the area of security between academics and professionals. Priority is given to current topics with greater potential to attract the interest of young students and professionals in order to better qualify them for their research and/or for the job market. Each short course must be structured for a total of three hours.


Same as main trail.


Professors and researchers interested in teaching a short course must submit a 3 to 5 page proposal (excluding CVs, item six below), written in Portuguese, with the following information:

  1. Identification data - Title of the short course, authors, institution(s) and the name of the author who will present the course;
  2. General data - Objectives of the course, treatment given to the subject (for example: theoretical or practical, general gathering of results or detailing of specific aspects, presentation or comparison of technologies, formation of new skills or information, etc.) and desired profile of the audience;
  3. Expected structure of the text (topics/chapters to be covered);
  4. For each chapter/topic provided in item three, write a summary of its content and a forecast of the respective number of pages;
  5. Main Bibliography used in the preparation of the course;
  6. Curriculum Vitae of the authors (one page per author, maximum).

All of the above information must be contained in only one document (a PDF file) to be submitted exclusively through the SBC JEMS system. The following criteria will be considered in the evaluation: relevance and timeliness of the theme for the event, technical quality of the proposal, and experience of the proponents on the proposed theme. The best proposals on different topics will be accepted for presentation and publication. In order to ensure the diversity of the short courses offered, the selected proposals will cover different themes.

The authors of selected proposals should produce a text (book chapter) in Portuguese containing between 40 and 50 pages. The texts will be published in the form of chapters, in the book "Minicursos SBSeg 2019". The template for publication of the book chapter is available on the SBC portal.

For each short course accepted, the SBSeg will provide to 1 of the presenters: 1 daily room rate at the official hotel of the event and the round trip ticket to São Paulo. All presenters, including those who will receive the hotel daily room rate and the ticket, will need to sign up to the event.
