In addition to completing the online submission process, please provide a two-page (maximum) letter describing your approach. We need your expertise in developing clear pathways through the maze of software and hardware at SIGGRAPH 2002. The Studio is also available as a test bed for your own theories on teaching art using digital media. We are putting together a team of educators who will be brainstorming on the pedagogical dimensions of the Studio.
C. Special Collaborations
In addition to completing the online submission process, please provide a two-page (maximum) letter describing your approach. Your letter should include:
Note: If you are submitting on behalf of a group of collaborators, you must

- A description of the process you would like to pursue.
- Your experience with the technologies you are interested in.
- Any specific software or materials you require.
- An estimate of time required as a single block or multiple blocks.
- Your first three choices for a time reservation. (Collaborations in The
Studio will run two sessions a day from Monday through Thursday.)

D. Working Artists
STOP. The submission process for Working Artists is in the Art Gallery Call for Participation. Working in tandem with the Art Gallery, the Studio will help select a few digital artists to utilize the resources of the Studio and provide insights and inspiration for the rest of us. Working artists agree to spend at least 20 hours in the Studio or the Art Gallery during the week of the conference. Output generated by Working Artists will be displayed in the Art Gallery in a special, continually transforming exhibition space.
