Technical Papers

The SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers programme will continue the tradition of excellence in computer graphics and interactive techniques that SIGGRAPH is known for and extend this world-class experience to Asia. We invite submission of high-quality papers that will set the standard in the field and stimulate future trends. Accepted papers will be presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 and published as a special issue of ACM Transactions on Graphics.

In addition to the core topics of modeling, animation, rendering, and imaging, we also encourage submissions from areas related to computer graphics: scientific visualisation, information visualisation, computer-aided design, human-computer interaction, computer vision, robotics, and applications such as film special effects and computer games. This list is not exhaustive. As always, excellence of the ideas is the predominant acceptance criterion.

The SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers review process is similar to previous SIGGRAPH conferences, and the standard of acceptance will be similarly high. Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may the same work be submitted to any other conference or journal during the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers review period. Any paper that has substantial overlap with a co-submitted or previously published paper will be rejected without review. More details about what constitutes a prior publication or a dual submission can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions. For papers from related areas such as those listed above, authors should consider how their work overlaps with computer graphics before deciding whether to submit.

For step-by-step instructions on how to submit a paper, see the Detailed Instructions & Checklist and Formats pages. You might also want to browse the list of Frequently Asked Questions, especially if this is the first time you are submitting to a SIGGRAPH conference. Finally, feel free to contact me or the members of the Papers Advisory Board via the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 email contact form with your questions and concerns.
