Each course proposal is extensively reviewed between
the submission deadline and the jury selection meeting.
Course selection considers factors such as:
Please see Frequently Asked Questions
for a more detailed portrait of the selection process.
- Course Proposal - description, abstract,
syllabus, organization and flow, categorization,
length, presentation history
- Course Content - material coverage,
effectiveness, course notes and supplementary
- Audience Interest Level - appropriateness,
overlap/best fit, educational value
- Topical Relevance
- Speaker Expertise
- Courses Program Objectives - quality, depth/breadth,
program balance, continuity, originality, schedule
flexibility (course lengths), resources
Proposers should learn the results of the jury process by late February 2005.
The course organizer must collect and prepare:
All material must be suitable for publication.
- A final set of electronic course notes
- Digital supplementary materials
(for example, sample code, datasets, documentation,
demos, animations, etc.)
- A final course timeline
listing the topics and speakers in chronological order.
At time of submission, all potential presenters must
have reviewed terms of the Acceptance Agreement.
If your submission is selected by SIGGRAPH 2005,
every speaker in your
course must complete and send the Acceptance Agreement via
fax or postal or courier service
by the requested date in your acceptance
notice. If we do not receive all contributor acceptance
agreements, your course cannot be presented at the conference.
The SIGGRAPH 2005 Acceptance
Agreement is a legal document. It explains the
uses SIGGRAPH makes of presented material and requires
every course contributor/presenter to acknowledge that
he or she has permission to use the submitted material.
This may involve seeking clearance from employers or
others who own and have loaned the presenter material
(such as any video or slides).
The agreement helps prevent situations whereby
presentations include material without permission
that might lead to complaints or even legal action.
In addition, the agreement asks if ACM SIGGRAPH may
use your materials for conference and organization
promotional material in exchange for full
author/artist credit information
(which you may decline).
Again, every presenter
must submit a signed
SIGGRAPH 2005 Acceptance
Agreement (signature of parent or legal guardian
is also required if contributor is under age 18).
Presenters who fail to complete a signed form will
not be allowed to present at the conference.
