After a paper is accepted, there is a lot of work for authors to do!
Authors of accepted papers must prepare camera-ready versions of their papers (or abstracts, for video papers) in ACM standard format for publication in the Conference Proceedings. SIGGRAPH 98 will produce a CD-ROM of all the accepted papers, so they must also be prepared in electronic form. Formatting guidelines will be sent to authors by the SIGGRAPH Director for Publications. Camera-ready and electronic versions of accepted papers must be received by 22 April 1998.
Authors and their employers, with the exception of U.S. government employees, must be prepared to sign a copyright transfer form before the paper is published. The ACM copyright procedures provide in part: "It is a policy of ACM to own the copyright on its technical publications to protect the interests of ACM, its authors, their employers, and at the same time to facilitate the appropriate reuse of this material by others."
Video illustrations will be considered part of the paper and may be published in the Conference Proceedings video supplement, the SIGGRAPH Video Review, and/or the SIGGRAPH 98 Conference Proceedings CD-ROM.
Information for Preparation of Video Submissions
At the Conference
The author(s) of each accepted paper will have approximately 25 minutes (depending on the length of the paper) to present the paper. For information on how to prepare a quality presentation and on the presentation equipment available at the conference, see Speaker Preparation. SIGGRAPH 98 offers unprecedented latitude for authors to enhance their presentations through a high degree of audience and off-site interaction.
