WIT Women in Information Technology



Women in Information Technology has been carried out since 2007, an initiative by SBC to discuss issues related to gender issues and Information Technology (IT) in Brazil – success stories, incentive policies and ways of engaging and attracting young people, especially women for IT-related careers. Organized in the form of presentations of articles, invited lectures and panels, the workshop is centered on debating issues related to women and their access to IT, both from the point of view of the labor market and of inclusion and digital literacy. The topics covered focus on the need to educate, recruit and train women, as a strategic policy for national and regional development and competitiveness.

The Digital Girls Forum has been part of the WIT activities since 2011 and is one of the actions of the SBC Digital Girls Program. This Program is aimed at elementary, high school and technological students, so that they can better understand the area of ​​computing and Information and Communication Technologies, in order to motivate them to pursue a career in these areas. During the event, the multipliers of this proposal take the opportunity to discuss projects and partnerships, in order to disseminate the initiative in the national territory.

The papers selected in the Short Paper category will be presented in the form of posters. The papers selected in the Full Paper category will be presented in a technical session, with presentation time followed by questions and answers.

The organizers reserve the right not to include in the proceedings those works that are not presented during the event.

Submission and Evaluation

Papers may be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English. 

Submissions must be sent through JEMS in one pdf file. 

Only anonymous submissions will be accepted; that is, papers cannot mention names of authors, projects, institutions and cities, or links to websites that reveal such information.

Each submission will be evaluated by at least three people from the Program Committee using a double-anonymous approach: authors have no information about who evaluates their submission; reviewers do not have information about authors; and each reviewer knows the identification of other reviewers from the same submission.

Suggestions for anonymizing your submission include:

  • Remove any author identification, add in the space for the name of authors and <authors’ institutions> for institutions.
  • Remove citations from papers of your own authorship throughout the text. If citation is required, use the term .
  • Avoid citing a large amount of your own work. Stick to the minimum enough to contextualize the new contribution, as if it were a work written by someone else in the eyes of those who read your submission.
  • Avoid expressions like “In previous works, we […]” followed by an explicit citation of a work by you or your research group.
  • Omit the Acknowledgments section, if any; it can be inserted in the final version, if the submission is accepted.
  • For more information on the anonymous review/assessment process we recommend reading: Moro, M. M., 2021. Guia Rápido para Submissão Anônima: proteja sua identidade corretamente. ISSN: 2175-9235. Disponível em:  https://bit.ly/submissao-anonima 

Consider papers published in WIT previous editions, in order to clearly position the contribution of the submission within the scope of the event. Previous issues available at https://sol.sbc.org.br/index.php/wit/issue/archive

Registration at CSBC 2022

Adding a paper in the Proceedings requires paying registration of at least one of its authors. Authors with more than one paper (considering any event connected to CSBC) can pay a single registration, plus an “extra publication fee” per additional paper.
