"Sketches & Applications is a forum for researchers, developers,
artists, gamers, and anyone working in a field related
to computer graphics and interactive techniques," said
Doug Roble, SIGGRAPH 2002 Sketches & Applications Chair
from Digital Domain. "Presentations range from their latest
research and ideas, the way they produced an effect in
a film or made a piece of artwork, to the latest technology
in computer graphics."
SIGGRAPH 2002 received 263 submissions from 22 countries.
Of the accepted 149 sketches, 91 are classified as technical,
26 art, 28 animation, and four emerging technologies.
