- Videos and DVDs should not be included in a submission
unless substantively similar footage can appear in the SIGGRAPH 2003
Conference Proceedings Videotape/DVD. If your paper is accepted and you cannot comply with this requirement, the acceptance will be rescinded.
- If your submission is accepted, you will be asked to complete and sign a SIGGRAPH 2003 Acceptance Agreement. The agreement must be completed, signed, and faxed or sent via postal or courier service before SIGGRAPH 2003. If we do not receive your completed, signed acceptance agreement, your work cannot be presented at SIGGRAPH 2003.
The acceptance agreement is a legal
document. It explains the uses SIGGRAPH makes of presented
material and requires you to acknowledge that you
have permission to use this material. This may involve
seeking clearance from your employer or from others
who have loaned you material, such as videotapes and
slides. The agreement helps prevent situations whereby
SIGGRAPH 2003 presentations include material without
permission that might lead to complaints or even legal
action. In addition, this agreement asks if ACM SIGGRAPH
may use your materials for conference and organization
promotional material in exchange for full author/artist
- After the reviews are complete but before the
program committtee meeting, we will open up the reviewing system to the
authors so that they can see the text of the anonymous reviews of their
papers. They will have three days before the program committee meeting
to craft a rebuttal to factual errors in the review of their paper.
- This year's submission and review process is slightly more complex than
before 2002, because papers presented at SIGGRAPH 2003 will be published
as a special issue of ACM Transactions on Graphics and will therefore go
through a full journal refereeing process.
