(Chicago, IL) - SIGGRAPH 2010 is seeking cutting-edge examples of video games and real-time simulations and graphics in several categories: commercial video games, experimental or prototypes games, software applications, interactive data visualizations, and information aesthetics, among others. All content that is interactively controlled and rendered in real time, and can be repeated in front of a live audience, will be considered.

“Over the past several years, the role and impact of interactive and real-time graphics have grown substantially to affect SIGGRAPH attendees from film production to academia,” says Evan Hirsch, SIGGRAPH 2010 Real-Time Rendering Chair and Creative Director for THQ. “Building on the debut of Real-Time Rendering at the 2009 Computer Animation Festival, SIGGRAPH 2010 is continuing this new and exciting addition to the conference. This focus allows creators of games and real time graphics to highlight their cutting-edge work on the same level as the linear work that has made the Computer Animation Theater legendary.”

Accepted work will be demonstrated live, in real time on a PC, Macintosh, or game console. While expectations are that many entries will be games released in 2010, submissions of non-commercial projects are also encouraged, including:

  • Game explorations
  • Student game projects
  • Mathematical or other industrial simulations
  • Research projects
  • Real-time art explorations
  • New uses of pioneering technology
  • Scientific visualizations: medical science, astrophysics, astronomy, physical science
  • Interactive data visualization and/or interactive information aesthetics

Complete submission details and access to a short video highlighting 2009 live, onstage demonstrations at the Computer Animation Festival
