Conference Exhibition Call For Participation Presenters Media Registration


Discovery consists of seeing what
everybody has seen and thinking what
nobody else has thought.

The Posters program presents the newest developing research in computer graphics and interactive techniques. New last year, it proved to be a lively program for discussion and exchange of ideas.

Because of the low organizational overhead for Posters, we can set the submission deadline much later than for other programs -- very close to the conference itself.

Posters provide a unique forum for research that is younger or smaller than appropriate for the Papers or Sketches programs, including:
  • Ideas that are interesting and valuable, but of interest to a niche audience.
  • Incremental results that are important but don't comprise a full paper by themselves.
  • Preliminary results in which the full course of an experiment has not yet been run.
  • Partial results that demonstrate proof of concept but have not yet solved all problems.
  • The latest new results that weren't available in time for the earlier deadlines.
The Posters program provides two forms of presentation. First, posters will be on display throughout the conference week. This allows attendees to browse and study posters at their convenience, devoting their time to those projects that interest them most.

Second, we will have scheduled sessions when poster presenters will be available for informal interaction and discussion. This allows attendees to receive explanations in person and allows presenters of new research to receive feedback and ideas in the early stages of their work. Poster presenters are encouraged to bring laptop computers to their sessions in order to show images, play animations, and give demos.

We invite submissions from researchers in all areas of computer graphics and interactive techniques. We particularly invite students to submit their work as a way to "break in" to the research community.

Posters were a sucessful new introduction to SIGGRAPH 2004. Now in its second year, we want to continue making it a fresh addition to the rest of the conference program. Show us your latest and in-progress work!
