Panels are a unique and exciting part of the annual SIGGRAPH conference because their objective is discussion and debate rather than presentation. Panels provide a forum for sharing experiences, opinions, insights, and even speculations. They are an opportunity to introduce or highlight topics that the SIGGRAPH community has overlooked. They are forums for disagreement, controversy, and audience interaction.

Panels come in different shapes and sizes, and have two to five panelists. To ensure balanced and dynamic panels, this year's submission process is different than it has been in the past. Instead of requiring the entire panel proposal to be submitted at one time, we are adopting a two-stage submission process. The first stage is for those interested in proposing a topic and moderating a panel, and the second stage is for those who want to be panelists.

In the first stage, we are looking for panel proposals: one-page descriptions of the proposed topic, why it will make a good panel, and why the submitter is qualified to moderate the panel. The panels jury will review the submitted topics and select the best ones to refer to the second stage. This first deadline is very early, so submit now! Remember, you do not need to have panelists selected to submit a panel proposal.

When the list of selected topics is published here on the SIGGRAPH 2004 web site, we will invite panelist submissions: one-page position papers on one of the selected topics. After the panelist deadline, the panels jury and the selected moderators will select up to four panelists for each topic.

We are especially interested in topics from the fringes of computer graphics and interactive techniques, and from related fields. We want to see proposals on interaction, games, mobile graphics, bioinformatics, cognitive and behavioral modeling, audio, haptics, and any other areas you feel might be interesting to the SIGGRAPH 2004 audience. We are also specifically interested not in just what you do, but how you choose what to work on and how you go about solving problems.

Panels are your opportunity to make your voice heard at SIGGRAPH 2004!
