emerging technologies


All submissions to Emerging Technologies will be reviewed by a jury of industry, research, and academic professionals in the fields of display systems, computing, entertainment, design, systems engineering, interface devices, art, and related fields. In addition, Emerging Technologies reserves the right to curate selected work.

Proposals will be reviewed based upon the following criteria: After the jury makes its acceptance decisions, every effort will be made to notify submitters by April.

Upon Acceptance

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, Emerging Technologies organizers must obtain signed SIGGRAPH 2005 Acceptance Agreements from ALL presenters (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.

All presenters whose projects are accepted for Emerging Technologies must also agree to:
  • Pay for shipping their work to and from SIGGRAPH 2005.
  • Submit an abstract in a PDF file properly formatted for publication in the SIGGRAPH 2005 Conference Select CD-ROM and Full Conference DVD.
