Educators Program: Frequently Asked Questions
1. I can't afford to come all the way to Yokohama, Japan for the conference. Will SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 pay for a part of my travel expenses?
We are unable to support your travel or hotel accommodation or any other related travel expenses. Please see the Presenter Recognition Policy for more details.
2. My company sells educational software. Can we make a sales presentation?
No. The Exhibition is the best place for that.
3. I have a great idea for a presentation, but I'm not sure if it's appropriate (too basic, advanced, fuzzy, etc.) for your program.
Please send it in, and let us make the decision.
4. English is not my first language. Can I submit and present in another language?
No, but SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 can provide some help with English. Please see the English Review Service.
5. I teach primary-school students, but I am not an expert in computer graphics. I have designed something using computer graphics, software, interactive techniques, games, etc. that really helps my students understand a concept (math, English, dance, etc.). Should I submit?
Yes. It may be appropriate for a paper.
6. Is there a difference between the Technical Papers and a paper in the Educators Program?
Yes, they are different program and have separate submission criteria.
7. There's an illustration in my paper of Jackie Chan in "Police Story (1985)," which I got from the web. Is that okay?
