For further information:
(Chicago, IL) - ACM SIGGRAPH announces new focuses on Digital Music and Gaming as part of the 2009 Call for Submissions at the 36th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, 3 - 7 August 2009 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This year's additional emphasis on music and gaming encourages music submissions that showcase composition and research in areas such as visual music, unique and innovative synthesis methods, custom-built or adapted sound-programming environments, digital recording, live interactive performances, sound effects, audio playback technologies, and art installations. As well, SIGGRAPH is seeking work that describes or illustrates innovative research in videogame theory, practice, methodologies, and criticism that questions common assumptions about the creative, technological, commercial, and intellectual challenges facing game designers, developers, researchers and players today.
"Each year, the content presented at SIGGRAPH provides an opportunity to view the best technological breakthroughs and advancements in multiple fields. In no other environment is there such a high caliber of computer graphics and interactive content provided," stated Ronen Barzel, SIGGRAPH 2009 Conference Chair. "The additional focus on music and gaming content this year is evidence of SIGGRAPH's continuing commitment to foster the fusion of science, art, and technology."
