Upon First-Stage Acceptance for SIGGRAPH 2008
Authors of papers conditionally accepted by the committee must prepare an electronic, camera-ready version of their papers in ACM-standard format for the second reviewing process, and then for eventual publication in a special issue of ACM Transactions on Graphics. SIGGRAPH 2008 will also produce a DVD-ROM of all the accepted papers. For detailed instructions for preparation of papers, see ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines.
A few days after the Papers Committee meeting, notification of conditional acceptances and rejections will be sent to authors, along with reviews of papers and a list of required minor changes, if appropriate. A member of the program committee, typically your primary or secondary reviewer, will be assigned as referee for the revision cycle.
A few days after notification, any changes to the paper title, list of authors, or 30-word paper summary will be due back to your referee. Changes to the paper title must be approved by your referee. Also, if you wish to substantially change the length of your paper, or if you wish to add any pages to the length of your paper, you must first obtain permission from your referee. Extensions of more than one page are unlikely to be granted.
The revised version of your paper is due about 20 days later. If the revised version is submitted sooner, the referee may provide early feedback to help with the process. No later than four weeks after the committee meeting, the author will receive the referee's report. We anticipate that, in general, this will be an indication that the revision is satisfactory and is accepted as the camera-ready form for publication. In cases where the referee is not satisfied with the revisions, the authors will have one more week to submit a final copy for approval or rejection.

Authorization for Use
Any material that supports a paper's acceptance for publication must be available as part of the final publication. Thus, all material submitted for review (video, CD-ROM, DVD) will become ACM-copyrighted material upon acceptance, and the required permission forms must be sent to ACM with the submission. If it subsequently becomes apparent that the necessary permissions cannot be given for publication of material that is substantially similar to that submitted for review, acceptance of the paper will be withdrawn.
