Speech is civilization itself.
The word, even the most
contradictory word, preserves contact --
it is silence which isolates.
THOMAS MANN, Magic Mountain
The SIGGRAPH Papers program continues to define excellence in research in
computer graphics and interactive techniques. It has long been the finest
international forum for disseminating ground-breaking, provocative, and important
new work, and has served as a source of inspiration for generations of researchers.
We invite submission of high-quality, original papers that will set the standard in the
field and stimulate the trends for years to come.
For SIGGRAPH 2005, we are especially interested in work that deals with the fusion of
3D graphics and video. In addition, we encourage submissions on systems-oriented research
and novel applications of computer graphics, such as medical, industrial, or artistic.
As usual, we also invite submissions from areas that overlap with computer graphics:
scientific visualization, computer games, human-computer interaction, computer-aided design,
computer vision, and robotics. This list is not exhaustive.
It is our tradition that excellence of ideas is the predominant acceptance criterion.
Researchers in these and other areas who are interested in submitting their work to SIGGRAPH 2005
should consider sending a brief description of their research to the Papers Advisory Board
well before the submission deadline to verify that their submission is relevant to the SIGGRAPH community and to alert the board
to the need for appropriate reviewers.
Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may work be submitted to any other
conference or journal during the SIGGRAPH 2005 Papers review period. Any paper that has
substantial overlap with a co-submitted or previously published paper will be rejected without review.
There are several changes in the submission process and requirements this year. Please consult
the appropriate Submission Procedure Checklist
before preparing your submission. The Papers Advisory Board will work with the chair throughout
the submission cycle. Feel free to contact me or the members of the board anytime via the SIGGRAPH
2005 email contact form with your questions and concerns.
