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.

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.
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.
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:
