[Submission Procedure Checklist]
We must receive your sketch or application and any additional materials (videotapes, for example), and you must complete your online Sketches & Applications Submission Form, by Wednesday, 12 March 2003, 5 pm Pacific time. See detailed instructions below.
Sketches and applications that arrive after 5 pm Pacific time on Wednesday, 12 March 2003 will be returned to the authors without review.
Note: The Sketches & Applications submission deadline will be strictly enforced.

Use this checklist to ensure that your submission is complete and that it meets all applicable program requirements:
1   Create an online SIGGRAPH 2003 Sketches & Applications Submission Form as soon as you decide that you will be submitting a sketch. (You can change your mind later.)
When you create this form, your entry will be assigned an online ID number that will be used to identify your submission throughout the review process. Make a record of this number. There will be some fields in this form that you cannot complete at this time. These fields will be completed later.

2   You must submit a print-ready version of your sketch or application to the jury. We will only accept PDF submissions that are laid out according to the publication specifications.
Prepare a PDF version of your sketch or application with the online ID in the title of the document (for example: "Rendering Hair (Online ID 402)". We will remove the online ID before your work is printed, but we need it in the document for the jury process.
The document should be one page in length, including figures. Please follow the SIGGRAPH 2003 publication guidelines exactly.
This document will be distributed to the reviewers. It is assumed that, if your submission is accepted, this information is ready and formatted for publication.

Formatting and Delivery Guidelines

Format Example (Microsoft Word)

Example (Adobe Acrobat PDF)
3   After your submission is complete, return to this Web site and complete the SIGGRAPH 2003 Sketches & Applications Submisson Form. The title, keywords, and declared category that you include on this form must exactly match those of the document that you submit.
4   After you begin the submission process, you will be able to upload your PDF file containing the print-ready version of your sketch or application described in 2 above. Please put your online ID in all filenames (for example sketches0239.pdf).
Even though the text and figures of the sketch are submitted electronically, certain submitters must also send certain items by courier or postal service. These items must also arrive by the deadline:
  • If your submission includes additional material, you are allowed three extra pages of text for supporting material that will not be published. You may either upload this material or send five (Animation Sketches and Art, Design, and Multimedia Sketches) or nine (Technical Sketches) copies.
  • Animation Sketch submitters must send five copies of the visuals.
  • If your Art, Design, and Multimedia Sketch involves animation, you must send five copies of the visuals.
  • Technical Sketch submitters must send nine copies of any visuals they wish to submit.
Send your submission materials (items 5-9 below) to:
Katerina Mania

SIGGRAPH 2003 Sketches Chair
5475 Mark Dabling Boulevard, Suite 108
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918 USA
All of your submission materials must be received at this address by Wednesday, 12 March 2003, 5 pm Pacific time or they will not be considered for SIGGRAPH 2003.
5    Presenters are encouraged (and sometimes required) to send videotapes documenting their work. The videotapes must be in NTSC format and should be edited for brevity and clarity. Each tape must be labeled with only the submission title and online ID number, and each must have its write-enable tab removed.
  • Animation sketches must be accompanied by five copies of the tape illustrating the work.
  • Technical sketch presenters who wish to send a tape must send nine copies of the tape.
  • Art, Design, and Multimedia sketches must include five copies of the videotape. If your presentation is about something that involves animation, you must send a videotape.
6   OPTIONAL: Submissions may be accompanied by up to three extra pages of documentation describing the details of your presentation. Upload this file (.pdf , .txt and .doc formats only) to the online submission system. This additional material will be distributed to the reviewers.
7    OPTIONAL: Submissions may include five (or nine if submitting a Technical sketch) copies of an ISO-9660 formatted CD-ROM containing supplementary electronic material. Each CD-ROM must be labeled with only the sketch or application title and online ID number.
8   OPTIONAL: Special presentation requirements. Explain the requirements for hands-on demonstrations, special equipment, or unusual presentation techniques. Note: presenters are required to provide any equipment beyond the standard SIGGRAPH 2003 configuration.
9   OPTIONAL: Use the English Review Service to help with the text of your submission!
10   If you still have questions, please review Sketches & Applications Frequently Asked Questions.
New for SIGGRAPH 2003
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 20003.

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 credit information.
Submitters located outside of the United States should note that customs delays of up to two weeks can 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. Submissions delayed past the submission deadline will not be accepted for review.
Return of Review Materials
Materials submitted to the SIGGRAPH 2003 Sketches & Applications Committee will not be returned to the authors, although reviewers may optionally return submissions with written comments.
