SIGGRAPH 2001, the 28th International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, will be held 12 - 17 August 2001, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Call for Participation is an invitation to contribute innovative ideas about science, education, games, special effects, medicine, the Internet, and just about any conceivable application of computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH 2001 seeks extraordinary papers, panels, courses, sketches & applications, animations, artwork, emerging technologies, as well as volunteers and support.
"SIGGRAPH is no ordinary conference," said Lynn Pocock, SIGGRAPH 2001 Conference Chair from the New York Institute of Technology. "It is recognized worldwide as the premier conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques. Through our Call for Participation, SIGGRAPH 2001 encourages the submission of the most extraordinary work from an international community of computer graphics scientists, animators, artists, interactive engineers, educators, Web developers, and computer graphics enthusiasts."
The SIGGRAPH 2001 technical program includes Papers, Panels, Courses, Sketches & Applications, and the Educators Program, which all focus on computer graphics and interactive technology research and education. SIGGRAPH 2001 encourages submissions in interactive techniques in addition to proposals from new areas that overlap computer graphics. Included are computer games, the Internet, convergence, robotics, cybernetics, audio, haptics, medicine, biology, and visualization.
The conference also seeks contributions for the Computer Animation Festival, Art Gallery: N-Space, and Emerging Technologies. All of these showcase the latest implementations of the technology and offer attendees opportunities to experience the technology.
The Call for Participation looks for volunteers and support for the following programs: Creative Applications Lab, Pathfinders, The Studio, SIGGRAPH TV, SIGGRAPH 2001 Online, Student Volunteers, International, and the Special Session: Web3D RoundUP.
SIGGRAPH 2001 invites everyone in the worldwide computer graphics and interactive technology community to submit their work. For detailed information on how to submit and submission deadlines for each program, see the Call for Participation.
SIGGRAPH 2001 includes an exhibition, 14 - 16 August. It will feature more than 300 computer graphics and interactive technology product and services vendors, many of which will use SIGGRAPH 2001 to introduce new products and upgrades. The exhibition will also offer emerging companies an opportunity to showcase their technology in a special area called Startup Park.
