Sketches

Intimidated about presenting a full technical paper? Want some experience presenting in front of an audience? Need to practice technical writing and submission? Prepare, submit, and present a sketch!

Sketches are lively presentations of interesting new ideas, unique collaborations, late-breaking results, works in progress, and novel applications of computer graphics techniques and technology. Because their format promotes audience feedback, live demonstrations, and lively discussion, Sketches recapture some of the immediacy and intimacy of the early SIGGRAPH conferences.

Sketches are ideal opportunities for artists, designers, animators, or engineers who want to explain how they created their work.

Materials We Need For Conference Documentation

In order to document your submission in the SIGGRAPH 98 print and electronic publications, we must receive certain materials from you. It is your responsibility to provide material in a timely and orderly manner to SIGGRAPH 98.

Your submission will be documented in the Conference Abstracts & Applications Catalog. This publication consists of a printed book and an accompanying CD-ROM.

What We Need:

The materials we will need from you to accurately document your submission are:

  Text

Digital text which describes your submission as you would like it to appear in print. PLEASE NOTE: What you submit will be printed. For example, do not include your name or contact information if you do not wish it to be printed. This publication is produced on a Power Macintosh; please try to send us text which is compatible with this platform. ASCII text without formatting is best, as the text will be edited and placed in a page layout program.

  Images

If you are submitting images over and above those included with your submission, we prefer to receive images as 35mm slides; they provide our best opportunity to accurately reproduce your visual content. Photographic prints and transparencies are acceptable, as are digital images. Polaroid prints are not acceptable except as a last resort.

If digital images are submitted, they should conform to the following guidelines:

at least 300 dpi at 4" by 5"

pixel resolution of at least 1200 by 1500

TIFF or EPS formats, no compression, Macintosh or PC platform

GIF and JPEG are not acceptable formats

Screen captures should be made on as large a display monitor as possible, to ensure acceptable image resolution.
