The SIGGRAPH Papers program is the premier international forum for disseminating new scholarly work in computer graphics. We invite submission of high-quality papers that will set the standard in the field and stimulate future trends.

In addition to the core topics of modeling, animation, rendering, and imaging, we also encourage submissions from areas related to computer graphics: human-computer interaction, computer-aided design, computer vision, robotics, visualization, and applications such as web graphics and computer games. This list is not exhaustive. As always, excellence of the ideas is the predominant acceptance criterion.

Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may work be submitted to any other conference or journal during the SIGGRAPH 2007 papers review period. Any paper that has substantial overlap with a co-submitted or previously published paper will be rejected without review. For papers from related areas such as those listed above, authors should consider how their work overlaps with computer graphics before deciding whether to submit. Are computer graphics algorithms or hardware used in a novel way? Are computer graphics simulations or visualizations used in a novel way? Was a method developed that will enable other applications of computer graphics? Were methods developed that can be used to generate better models for input to computer graphics systems or to render better images?

There are several major changes in the submission process and requirements this year. These changes are summarized in New for SIGGRAPH 2007. For step-by-step instructions on how to submit a paper, see the Detailed Instructions and Checklist and Formats pages. You might also want to browse the list of Frequently Asked Questions. Finally, feel free to contact me or the members of the Papers Advisory Board anytime via the SIGGRAPH 2007 email contact form with your questions and concerns.
