Each year, thousands of practitioners, developers, researchers, artists, and students attend SIGGRAPH courses to broaden and deepen their knowledge of computer graphics and interactive techniques. The insights they gain shape hardware and software products, production films, and future research directions. Share your knowledge and influence the future of our field by presenting a course at SIGGRAPH 2007.

Courses will be offered during the first four days of SIGGRAPH 2007, with the majority on the first day, Sunday. Courses may be full-day (seven hours), typically with four speakers; half-day (3.5 hours), typically with two speakers; or tutorials (1.75 hours), typically with one speaker.

While we always need updated courses on our bread-and-butter topics, both at beginning and advanced levels, proposals that are new to the SIGGRAPH audience are particularly welcome. In addition, the SIGGRAPH 2007 program is spotlighting courses that bring together presenters from different communities, such as academia and industry, art and technology, theory and practice, etc.

This brief overview will help familiarize new contributors with features of the SIGGRAPH 2007 Courses program. Changes in the submission process and requirements are summarized in New for SIGGRAPH 2007. For detailed instructions on how to submit a course, see the Submission Rules and Requirements. You might also want to browse the list of Frequently Asked Questions. Finally, feel free to contact us via the SIGGRAPH 2007 email contact form with your questions and concerns.

We await your proposal!
