Review and Upon Acceptance
All submissions to SIGGRAPH 2008 will be reviewed by a jury of leading experts in computer graphics, interactive techniques, and related technologies. Submitters of proposals to the general submission deadline will receive notice of acceptance or rejection by mid-May 2008. Submitters to the late-breaking deadline will receive notice by early June 2008.
If your work is accepted, an Acceptance Agreement will be produced from the Permissions section of your online submission form. You must print that agreement, sign it, and fax it or send it via postal or courier service before SIGGRAPH 2008. If we do not receive your completed, signed Acceptance Agreement, your work cannot be presented at SIGGRAPH 2008.
The Acceptance Agreement is a legal document. It explains the uses SIGGRAPH makes of presented material and requires you to acknowledge that you have permission to use this material. This may involve seeking clearance from your employer or from others who have loaned you material, such as videotapes and slides. The agreement helps prevent situations whereby SIGGRAPH 2008 presentations include material without permission that might lead to complaints or even legal action. In addition, this agreement asks if ACM SIGGRAPH may use your materials for conference and organization promotional material in exchange for full author/artist credit information (which you may decline).
In addition, ALL presenters must provide signed SIGGRAPH 2008 Acceptance Agreements (signature of parent or legal guardian is also required if contributor is under age 18). Presenters who have not submitted signed forms will not be allowed to present.
Information, instructions, policies, and forms for everyone whose work is accepted for presentation at SIGGRAPH 2008.
