Sketches & Posters
The Sketches & Posters program provides a dynamic forum for new and thought-provoking ideas, techniques, and applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. The program covers a broad spectrum of topics including digital art, design, science, engineering, and many more. It encompasses ideas ranging from academic research to industrial development, from practical tools to behind-the-scenes explanations of commercial and artistic work.
Sketches are scheduled oral presentations of about 15 minutes followed by Q&A in an auditorium.
Posters display visual materials in a high-traffic area within the convention center. Posters also offer scheduled sessions in which presenters are asked to appear at their posters for informal interaction and discussion with attendees.
Whether you are coming up with what-if ideas, developing new techniques, or using existing ones in novel ways, we want to hear from you. We encourage submissions from artists, animators, developers, and researchers from academia and industry, as well as independent work. We also welcome submissions from people who are submitting their work to Emerging Technologies, the Art Gallery, and/or the Computer Animation Festival.
We invite questions about Sketches & Posters. But please, before you send questions via email, review the Frequently Asked Questions. Your question may be answered there. If it is not, use this form to send your question to us.
Examples of areas and topics for submissions:
Technical: Researchers and technicians are invited to submit descriptions of their research or work in progress. Submitters to Emerging Technologies are also encouraged to submit their work to this category.
Art and Design: Artists and designers are invited to submit artistic work that utilizes unique or interesting ideas. Contemporary topics, such as entertainment design and smart gadgets are included in this category. Submitters to the Art Galleries are also encouraged to submit their work in this category.
Games: Video games are a rapidly growing technological medium. Game companies and independent developers are invited to submit descriptions of their philosophies, challenges, and experiences in making innovative commercial products, technologies, or contents.
Animation and Visual Effects: Computer animation creators are invited to present their latest techniques, ideas, and stories, ranging from industrial development and practical tools to behind-the-scenes explanations of commercial and artistic work.
Applications: Organizations or individuals are invited to submit proposals for demonstrations or presentations of computer graphics technologies applied in the real world. Applications may cover a variety of areas including web and mobile graphics, digital signage, research labs, or education. The emphasis is on the use of computer graphics to solve everyday problems, ranging from industrial development and practical tools to behind-the-scenes explanations of commercial and artistic work.
The deadline for submission to SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 Sketches & Posters is 17 August 2009, 23:59 GMT. Please return to this page often for further submission details.
