Submissions will be administratively rejected without review if it is found that:
- The submission violates the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.
- The submission is a dual submission; that is, if the submission is simultaneously under review for any other conference or publication. For more details, see the Work Submitted Elsewhere section of the Submissions FAQ.
- Electronic files have been submitted that have been designed to have side effects other than presenting the submitted work to reviewers and committee members (for example, a “phone home” script).
- It appears that the paper contains material for which the submitters have not secured the necessary copyrights.
- Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may the same work be submitted to any other conference or journal during the SIGGRAPH 2018 Art Papers review period.
The Art Papers Jury will evaluate papers using the following criteria:
- Scope and magnitude of its contribution to literature on digital arts, computer graphics, and/or interactive techniques
- Clarity of thesis and compelling exposition
- Quality and relevance of references to establish context and support author’s claims
- Quality and relevance of support media to reinforce the author’s claims
Each paper will be distributed to three or more experts for review. However, if the jury determines that a submission has been previously published or is off topic, incomplete, or otherwise unsuitable for publication, the submission will be rejected without external review.
Once reviews are complete, the committee will meet to deliberate the final outcome of each paper at the Art Papers Jury Meeting. If there is not a clear consensus among the original reviewers, additional reviews will be solicited.
Following the jury meeting, email notification of rejection or conditional acceptance status will be sent to submitters, who will then be granted access to the written reviews and scores.
Conditionally accepted papers undergo a second reviewing process, in which a referee (a member of the Art Papers Jury) verifies that the final version of the paper is acceptable (that any required changes have been made, and that other changes made by the authors, perhaps in response to reviewer comments, have not compromised the paper in any way). This second and final stage determines the final acceptance status of all papers. The referees’ decisions are final. Papers that do not satisfy the referee in the second stage of reviewing and/or that are not uploaded in final form by the final deadline, together with the original or revised versions of the submitted supplementary material, will be rejected.
