Each submission will be reviewed and juried. Evaluation is based on content,
clarity, appropriateness, and innovation in the use of computer graphics or interactive
techniques in teaching and learning. A large part of the review process is deciding if the
work fits into our vision for the Educators Program. If your work is not accepted, that is
not necessarily a reflection on its quality.
Abstracts and proposals should contain sufficient detail to assure reviewers that your
work is high-quality, innovative, inspiring, and of interest to attendees.
If your submission is accepted by SIGGRAPH 2005, an Acceptance
Agreement will be produced from the Permissions section of your online
submission form. You must print that agreement, sign it, and fax it or
send it via postal or courier service before SIGGRAPH 2005. If we do
not receive your completed, signed Acceptance Agreement, your work
cannot be presented at SIGGRAPH 2005.
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 2005 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 (which you may decline).
In addition, ALL presenters must provide signed SIGGRAPH 2005 Acceptance
Agreements (signature of parent or legal guardian is also required if
contributor is under age 18). Presenters who have not submitted signed
forms will not be allowed to present.
Original papers and extended abstracts from Educators Program presentations will
appear in the SIGGRAPH 2005 Conference Select CD-ROM and Full Conference DVD-ROM.
Due to publication limitations, the maximum length for papers is four pages (4,000 words);
for panels, two pages (1,500 words); and for workshops or forums, two pages (1,500 words).
If your submission is accepted, you will be asked to prepare a PDF file formatted
according to SIGGRAPH 2005 publication guidelines,
so that it can be used directly in the digital publications.
Accepted presentations that exceed these limits and supplemental materials (including
images, web pages, applets, curriculum, and other instructional resources) can be made
available by presenters and may be published in the Conference Select CD-ROM and Full
