General Submissions Juror


The General Submissions Juror is responsible for helping to review and make recommendations of the content submitted to General Submissions. This content consists of exhibits of innovative, high-quality, fine art, and/or design produced using computer graphics and interactive techniques; a collection of leading-edge applications and interactive technologies, a broad spectrum of educational sessions on innovative uses of computer graphics and interactive techniques, and sessions where experts in the field debate, dispute, and/or otherwise reflect on the past, present and future of computer graphics and interactive techniques in the following formats:

  • Courses
  • Emerging Technologies
  • New Technologies
  • Panels
  • Posters
  • Presentations
  • Projects/Installations
  • Talks
  • Workshops
  • Studio
  • RTL

These submissions are reviewed over an intense three (3) week period. Our goal is to provide 3-4 high quality reviews for each of the roughly 500 submissions. Shortly after the review period, the full jury (approximately 45 people) will get together at the Unified Jury Meeting to discuss the submissions and make recommendations for final selection. 

Recommended Qualifications

  • team player who works well with others 
  • strong communication skills
  • deadline-driven; able to organize and respond quickly 
  • able to devote the necessary time 
  • participated in past SIGGRAPH conferences as a contributor, juror and/or subcommittee member

Specific Responsibilities

Must be available to devote approximately 20-25 hours of active reviewing over a 3-week period beginning approximately mid February. General Submissions Jurors will be responsible for reviewing roughly 40-50 submissions. Submissions vary in complexity, but on average each submission should require about 15-30 minutes of your time (once you have downloaded the materials). In addition to writing reviews, the Jurors must also be available to travel to the Unified Jury meeting to be held over a weekend in late March.
