Do you have a creative idea or technological invention and feel that others would benefit from it? Are you an expert on a subject of fundamental importance or wide appeal?

High-quality courses, both theoretical and practical, will be a key part of the inaugural SIGGRAPH Asia 2008. We invite you to use this opportunity to share some of your expertise in an engaging way with a high-level international audience.

The Courses programme welcomes submissions that cover state-of-the-art techniques in computer graphics and interactive interfaces including (but not limited to) animation, computer-human interactivity, entertainment, gaming, scientific visualisation, and cool programming hackery. We also welcome reports on recent industrial advances and tutorials on skills and techniques for artists.

Courses will be offered during the first few days of SIGGRAPH Asia 2008, with the majority on the first day. Courses may be full-day (seven hours), typically with four speakers; half-day (3.5 hours), typically with two speakers; or tutorials (1.75 hours), typically with one speaker.
