1 Select a Program
Review the Call for Participation and decide which program is most appropriate for your work. If your work
is appropriate for more than one program, decide which one will give you the best opportunity to explain or demonstrate your achievements. If you decide that some aspects of your work are appropriate for one program
and other aspects are appropriate for another, you must complete the submission process for each program.
2 Study the Submission Requirements
Make sure that you can provide all the information required for the specific program(s) you have selected.
3 Prepare Your Work for Submission
Complete your paper, proposal, artwork, or animation
and make sure that it is in final form as required by the program(s) you have selected.
4 Observe the Submission Deadlines
SIGGRAPH 2000 submission deadlines are final. Submissions received after the deadlines are not accepted.
5 Complete the Submission & Authorization Form
Use of the online SIGGRAPH 2000 Submission & Authorization Form is REQUIRED for all programs.
There you will find instructions on how to complete the online forms. At the end of the online process, your entry will be assigned an online identification number (online ID number), and your completed form will be displayed in your Web browser.
You MUST: 1. print the form, 2. sign the form, and 3. send your printed, signed form via postal or courier service
so it arrives on or before the submission deadline.
If we do not receive your completed, signed submission
& authorization form, your work cannot be accepted
for SIGGRAPH 2000.
Why the form must be printed, signed, and sent in physical form
The submission & authorization form is a legal document. It explains the uses SIGGRAPH makes of presented material and requires you to acknowledge that you have permission to use this material. This may involve
seeking clearance from your employer or from others who
have loaned you material, such as videotapes and
slides. The form helps prevent situations whereby SIGGRAPH 2000 presentations include material without permission that might lead to complaints or even legal action. In addition, this form asks if ACM SIGGRAPH may use your materials for conference and organization promotional material in exchange for full author/artist credit information.
6 Send Your Work
Many SIGGRAPH 2000 programs strongly encourage electronic (ftp) submission of your paper, proposal, supporting documentation, and files. Some programs require electronic submission of your work. After you complete your online submission & authorization form, you will see instructions on
how to submit your documents and supplemental materials.
If you are submitting artwork or animations, send them with your signed submission & authorization form.
