Preparing Course and Tutorial Material

The following information will help you prepare the material you will need to submit for the printed and electronic versions of the notes for your course or tutorial to be presented at SIGGRAPH 2000.

Questions regarding this document should be directed to Stephen Spencer, ACM SIGGRAPH Director for Publications, by telephone at +1.206.543.1695 or by email at stephen_spencer@siggraph.org".

Overview ("The Big Picture")
As course or tutorial organizer, you are responsible for working with your speakers to get their material together, organize it, and deliver it to me and to the Courses Chair.

What will you be delivering? One or more electronic files (details on formats can be found below) which will be used to prepare the printed and electronic versions of the notes for your course or tutorial, a hardcopy draft of the printed notes for your course and tutorial, and clear instructions on how to assemble these files into the notes. The electronic files you send will be the basis for the creation of the printed *and* electronic versions of the notes for your course or tutorial.

The notes from your course or tutorial are presented to the attendee in two formats: a printed version, and an electronic version on the Course Notes CD-ROM.

The print and electronic versions usually vary somewhat, in part because there are things that can be delivered on CD-ROM that cannot be delivered in a printed publication (for example, a QuickTime movie), and in part because there are copyright and permission issues which keep us from distributing some material after the conference.

Once the print and electronic versions of the notes from your course or tutorial have been assembled, PDF versions of all of the printed notes are further processed by the company that prints the printed course notes, and proofs of each course's notes are compared to the hardcopy draft you send, to make sure that no errors occurred in the processing of the material you sent in.

Deadline Information
The deadline for the receipt of the electronic files which will be used to create the print and electronic versions of the notes for your course or tutorial, and the hardcopy draft of your printed notes is 07 April 2000. This is a firm deadline. Once your material has been received, it will be processed and checked, replicated, and delivered to the conference.

Delivery Information
As noted above, you need to make available to Stephen Spencer the electronic files that will be used to create the print and electronic versions of the notes for your course or tutorial. A hardcopy of the material to be used as a reference for producing the printed version needs to be sent to Stephen Spencer, and to the Courses Chair.

The *printed material* should be delivered to the following addresses:

 

Stephen Spencer
Department of Computer Science & Engineering
The University of Washington
114 Sieg Hall, Box 352350
Seattle, WA 98195-2350
+1.206.543.1695

Anselmo Lastra
University of North Carolina
CB #3175 Sitterson Hall
Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3175
+1.919.962.1958

 

The electronic material should be made available to Stephen Spencer over the Internet:

- If at all possible, place the files online at your Web or FTP site, and send e-mail to "stephen.spencer@siggraph.org" with the location and names of the files.

- If you cannot make the files available at your Web or FTP site, please send e-mail to "stephen.spencer@siggraph.org" and he will make an FTP directory on "siggraph.org" for you to upload them.

- If you can use the "tar" or "zip" programs to build one archive file containing all of the individual files, that is preferable: transfer time and the potential for missing files is greatly diminished.

Please see the example email you should be sending to Stephen Spencer, informing him of the location and listing of files, and the instructions for building the print and electronic (CD-ROM) versions of the notes for your course or tutorial.
