Conference Exhibition Call For Participation Presenters Media Registration



The Panels jury will post panel topics by 20 December 2004. The jury will consider the following:
  • Topic level of interest
  • Moderator's qualifications
  • Possibility for interesting discussions
Three outcomes are possible:
  • Accept. The topic is selected to move on to the second round.
  • Conditional Accept. The jury would like to accept the topic, but feels that some modifications are needed. Modifications may include broadening or narrowing the scope of the topic or changing the wording of the title.
  • Reject.
The complete list of accepted topics will be available here on the SIGGRAPH 2005 web site in late December.

The Panels jury will review position papers shortly after the deadline. The jurors will determine the submitters' expertise on the topic and the strength of their positions. The moderator and the Panels jury will work together to select up to four panelists for each topic who represent a broad cross-section of the SIGGRAPH community.

Topics that do not generate enough panelists will not be presented at the conference. There is no guarantee that an accepted topic will be presented.

Upon Acceptance

If your submission is accepted by SIGGRAPH 2005, the Permission section of your online submission form will generate an Acceptance Agreement. You must print, sign, and fax or send this agreement via postal or courier service before the conference date. If we do not receive your completed, signed Acceptance Agreement, you may not speak in the conference.

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 materials. The agreement helps avoid presenting material without permission.

In addition, panel organizers must obtain signed SIGGRAPH 2005 Acceptance Agreements from ALL presenters (signature of parent or legal guardian is also required if the presenter is under age 18). Presenters who have not submitted signed forms will not be permitted to present.
