Sketches & Applications
SIGGRAPH 99 has contracted with AVW Audio Visual, Inc. for imaging of 35mm slides prior to the conference. AVW can accept slide information on Macintosh and PC diskettes, on Zip disks, and via email. Slides will be rendered at 4,000 lines of resolution in 24-bit color and mounted in Wess #AHX002 glassless, pin-registered mounts. This service is provided at no charge to all SIGGRAPH 99 speakers who wish to use it, under the following provisions:
SIGGRAPH 99 speakers are allowed to submit a maximum of 35 slides per hour of presentation.
The final deadline for pre-conference slide imaging by AVW is 30 July 1999. Submissions received after 23 July and before 31 July will be imaged and brought to the conference by the Speaker Prep staff. They will be available for pickup in the Speaker Prep Room upon your check-in.
In order to have your slides produced free of charge, you must submit your slide presentation files by 30 July 1999. If you need slides produced after the deadline, the cost to you will be $15.00 per slide. The Speaker Prep Room staff will assist you in getting your slides imaged by a local Los Angeles photo lab.
Presentation applications include:
MacintoshSlide submissions must be accompanied by a completed Speaker's Slide Submission Form. If you are presenting in multiple sessions, please use a different Speaker's Slide Submission Form for each session. SIGGRAPH 99 will only pay for slides submitted by speakers who have been specified by the chairs of the technical sessions. Please keep in mind that you will be responsible for paying for any slides submitted over the 35 per hour limit and/or past the submission deadline.
When imaging and processing are completed, finished 35mm slides will be returned by UPS GroundTrac service. Speakers requiring next-day or second-day air service (FedEx or UPS) may provide account numbers or accept the packages C.O.D. for the shipping expense. SIGGRAPH 99 will not pay for express delivery.
Emergency slide-making services at the conference will be available through local slide imaging labs. However, contributors who require slide production during SIGGRAPH 99 will bear the cost of the production. Computers will be available in the Speaker Prep Room if you need to create or edit electronic presentations after you arrive at the conference.
