Frequently Asked Questions

1. I can't afford to come to the conference. Will SIGGRAPH 2007 pay my expenses?
Sorry, no. Please see the Presenter Recognition Policy for more details.

2. My company sells educational software. Can we make a sales presentation?
No. The Exhibition is the best place for that.

3. I have a great idea for a presentation, but I'm not sure if it's appropriate (too basic, advanced, fuzzy, etc.) for your program.
Please send it in, and let us make the decision.

4. English is not my first language. Can I submit and present in another language?
No, but SIGGRAPH 2007 can provide some help with English. Please see the English Review Service.

5. I'm a sixth-grade teacher, not an expert in computer graphics, but I have designed something using computer graphics, software, interactive techniques, games, etc. that really helps my math, English, dance, etc. students. Should I submit?
Yes. It may be appropriate for a QuickTake.

6. Is there a difference between the Papers program and a paper in the Educators Program?
Yes, they are different programs and have separate submission criteria.

7. There's an illustration in my paper of Elvis in "Clambake," which I got from the net. Is that okay?
No, either get written permission to use the image, or take it out. A reference in the text is OK.
