[Submission Procedure Checklist]
Use the checklist below to ensure that your submission is complete and meets
all applicable program requirements.
1. Complete the online SIGGRAPH 2003 Courses Submission Form. There you will find instructions on how to complete the online form. When you begin the form, your submission will be assigned an online ID number that will be used to identify your submission throughout the review process.
2. Course proposals must be submitted electronically via the SIGGRAPH 2003
online submission system. No other method of submission will be accepted. Fax
submissions are not accepted. Submission procedures are specified in the
online submission process.
3. If your course proposal is accepted, All other speakers in your course must sign and and send in the online
SIGGRAPH 2003 Acceptance Agreement. If we do not receive all of the appropriate
acceptance agreements before SIGGRAPH 2003, your course cannot be presented.
4. Your course proposal should include:
5. OPTIONAL: Use the English Review Service to help with the text of your submission.
- Course title
- Course organizer
- Proposed length (full-day, half-day, tutorial)
- Proposed presentation venue (regular session room or a hands-on facility)
- A two- or three-sentence description of the course suitable for
pre-conference publicity. Publication deadlines preclude revision of this
- Names of speakers.
- An expanded statement. This should be a more detailed description of
the course (100 words or less). It will be used in SIGGRAPH
2003 promotional materials and on the Web site.
- A list of prerequisites. This should explicitly convey to prospective
attendees the type of background material that they need to know in order to
follow the course presentation (50 words or less). Prerequisites might
include specific mathematics, experience with graphics, and/or particular
application areas, etc. They will be used in SIGGRAPH 2003 promotional
materials and on the Web site.
- A list of topics. This should explicitly convey what the course will
cover beyond the prerequisites (50 words or less). Make a clear distinction
between prerequisites and topics.
Important: The expanded statement, list of prerequisites, and the list of
topics help attendees determine the complexity and depth of the course
materials. To ensure that these items serve their purpose, prepare this
information carefully. It will be used in
SIGGRAPH 2003 promotional materials and on the Web site.
- A course syllabus. List the topics to be discussed, identify who will
be teaching each portion of the course, and provide an estimated timeline
for the course. Proposals that demonstrate a coherent approach in the
syllabus and conform to the continuity request in the Online Submission Form will be considered more
favorably during the review and jury process.
- Suggestions for shorter presentations. Proposers of full-day and
half-day courses should include suggestions for shorter presentations based
on the continuity of the components in the original proposal.
- Course history. Specify whether this course is similar to courses
presented at previous SIGGRAPH conferences or is a completely new course. If
the course is similar to courses from previous years, when was it last
offered and by whom? If the course is completely new, briefly describe why
it is of interest.
- A description of the course notes. A short description or example of
the type and style of course notes that the organizer plans to provide.
Here is a good example of successful course notes: Introduction to Computer Graphics, SIGGRAPH 2002.
- Special notes requirements. Explain requests, if any, to include
auxiliary materials, such as textbooks, videos, slides, or software with the
SIGGRAPH 2003 published course notes. Important: SIGGRAPH 2003 does not pay
for the cost of including auxiliary materials with course notes.
Special presentation requirements. Explain requirements for hands-on
demonstrations, special equipment, or unusual presentation techniques.
Course organizers are required to provide any equipment beyond the standard
SIGGRAPH 2003 configuration.
- Course presenter information. Name, title, affiliation, and a short
biography (100 words or less).
- Organizer contact information. Occasionally there is a need to contact
the course organizer shortly before, during, or immediately after the jury
meeting, so SIGGRAPH 2003 needs to have accurate contact information
(including phone numbers) for January and February of 2003.
Submitters located outside of the United States should note that customs
delays of up to two weeks could occur. Customs labels should bear the words:
"Educational material with no commercial value." SIGGRAPH 2003 will not pay
any customs fees, duties, or tariffs incurred by your submission.
