2006 Conceptual Focus
The Art Gallery invites papers that address issues related to the "intersection" of the digital arts, culture, technology, humanity, or the future. Papers may focus on theoretical and critical discourses of computer graphics or be descriptive in nature. Papers that provoke thought, question contemporary practices, attempt to predict the future, or reflect critically on the past are strongly encouraged.

How to Submit
Complete the online SIGGRAPH 2006 Art Gallery Submission Form. There you will find instructions on how to complete the online form. At the end of the online process, your entry will be assigned a submission ID number. Take note of this number for the rest of the submission requirements. A separate submission form must be completed for each submitted work. You can change your submission form (using the same login and submission ID) as many times as you like before the official submission deadline: 27 January 2006.

See Review and Upon Acceptance to ensure that you can meet all the post-acceptance requirements.

Essays are limited to 3,000 words. Include an abstract of no more than 300 words. Do not put any indication of your name in the paper or filename. Only online submissions will be accepted. Files must be in rich text format (RTF) or PDF. Please indicate your file format on your submission form. Accepted papers will be published in the SIGGRAPH 2006 Electronic Art and Animation Catalog.
