Content Presentations and Contributions
The SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers programme will continue the tradition of excellence in computer graphics and interactive techniques that SIGGRAPH is known for and extend this world-class experience to Asia. SIGGRAPH Asia invites submission of high-quality papers that will set the standard in the field and stimulate future trends. Accepted papers will be presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 and published as a special issue of ACM Transactions on Graphics. The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers is 28 May 2008.
Sketches and Posters
This programme covers a broad spectrum of topics including digital art, design, science, and engineering. It encompasses ideas ranging from speculation to academic research, from industrial development and practical tools to behind-the-scenes explanations of commercial and artistic work. Whether one is toying with fuzzy what-if ideas, developing new techniques, or using existing ones in novel ways, SIGGRAPH Asia wants to hear from them! SIGGRAPH Asia encourages them to be a part of this exciting exchange of ideas and techniques by being a pioneer and contribute their ideas to the first SIGGRAPH Asia! The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Sketches & Posters is 12 July 2008.
The Courses programme welcomes submissions that cover state-of-the-art techniques in computer graphics and interactive interfaces including (but not limited to) animation, computer-human interactivity, post-production, entertainment, gaming, rendering, scientific visualisation, virtual reality, and programming hackery. SIGGRAPH Asia also welcomes reports on recent industrial advances and tutorials on skills and techniques for artists. The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Courses programme is 19 May 2008.
The Art Gallery welcomes submissions of printed, interactive, networked, digital art in 2D, 3D, and 4D, especially works that deal with transformations, fusions, intersections, and paradigm shifts from Asia. The show will facilitate an encounter with, and exchange between, different fields to showcase "hybrid" works such as space art in zero gravity, text-literature visualisation, and ubiquitous sounds. The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Art Gallery is 20 June 2008.
Computer Animation Festival
The Computer Animation Festival includes two main components: The official competition programme features a juried selection of "the best of the best" amazing works that provide insight on current international trends in computer-generated animation. Further to this a special curated programme will showcase remarkable films, from classics to experimental explorations of the latest technologies. This special programme of short subjects and features presents an intriguing collection of world-
renowned animated works. Professionals, artists, filmmakers, and researchers from throughout the world are invited to participate. The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Computer Animation Festival is 20 June 2008.
The aim of the Educators Programme is to create an environment that supports innovation in the instruction of computer graphics and digital art. Support the evolving integration of art and technology as embraced by educators of all levels from early learning through higher education and industry in all sub-disciplines of the field. Share ideas concerning educational strategies as adopted in both industry and academia and help make learning a more satisfying, productive, and meaningful process. The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Educators Programme is 6 June 2008.
This programme seeks creative and innovative projects in the fields of virtual and mixed reality, haptic interfaces, ubiquitous systems, digital tools, HD displays, robotics, and any other applications of new, exciting, and amazing technologies. The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Emerging Technologies is 26 May 2008.
