[Categories]
 
Papers on all aspects of computer graphics and interactive techniques are encouraged. However, all papers will be treated by the selection committee as belonging to one of four categories and will be reviewed accordingly. The categories are:
 
Research
Research papers present a new and useful contribution to the state of the art. They are sufficiently complete so that a competent graduate student in computer graphics could implement the work. Relevant previous work is referenced and discussed. The new and useful contribution is stated explicitly. The new work's advantage over previous work is clearly demonstrated and its limitations and drawbacks discussed.
 
System
System papers present a blend of algorithms, technical requirements, user requirements, and design that solves a large-scale problem. The system that is described is both novel and important, and it has been implemented. The rationale for significant design decisions is provided, and the system is compared to documented, best-of-breed systems already in use. The comparison includes discussion of how the described system differs from and is, in some significant respects, superior to those systems.
 
Process
Process papers demonstrate, tersely but with enough detail to reproduce the work, how some novel and significant result was achieved with a combination of known techniques and some new ideas. The standards for Process papers are rigorous. Novelty alone is insufficient; the results must be impressive enough and general enough to merit publishing work in which the research contribution is less than in a standard research paper.
 
Alternative
Although most papers are expected to be Research, System, or Process papers, authors should not feel compelled to force an innovative paper into one of these categories if none is appropriate. However, papers that are reviewed in the Alternative category may be judged even more rigorously than those reviewed as Research, System, or Process papers. Alternative papers reference and discuss relevant previous work and make a substantial contribution to the computer graphics and interactive techniques community. The selection committee may, if they feel it is appropriate, select any submission for presentation in a special session, or may recommend that a submission, although inappropriate for a presentation in the Papers program, be considered for inclusion in some other SIGGRAPH 2003 program.
