How to SubmitPrint section
We are especially interested in proposals for:
- True introductory courses that offer primers on core topics in computer graphics in a coherent, well-designed format.
- Courses that provide instruction on subjects related to other SIGGRAPH 2018 programs, such as motion picture production, games, augmented and virtual reality, mobile application development, and maker culture.
- Courses that show how to use or combine skills and techniques from different areas of computer graphics and reapply them in novel ways for which they were not originally intended in a manner that can contribute or improve facility in other areas.
- Courses on emerging topics such as big visual data and deep learning.
- Courses that include source code, hardware instructions, detailed course notes, slides, and other material that helps attendees apply their new knowledge.
- Short courses that explore the history and culture of computer graphics.
In particular, please be aware of these fields:
- A presentation format. To propose a course, please select Course as your presentation format. This selection will activate courses-specific questions in the form. Please see below for more information about required information and materials for this presentation format. If you propose a course in both short and half-day formats, please clarify the differences between each format.
- One “representative image” suitable for use on the conference website and in promotional materials.
See Representative Image Guidelines
- Information on the intended audience, prerequisites, and level of difficulty. Please choose the level of difficulty appropriately; your choice will not directly affect the perceived value of the course. Must indicate (Introductory, Intermediate or Advanced).
- Short biographies (50 words) for each of your instructors. At most, a course should consist of a moderator and three to four instructors. We recommend one instructor for a short course and two instructors for a half-day course.
- Sample of course notes. This is an outline of materials and a representative sample of the Course Notes that you plan to provide if your course is accepted. The sample does not need to be long or complete. It should be clear and concise, and should demonstrate the expected quality of the learning materials you will make available during and after the conference. As a guide, here are a few examples of past course notes:
When preparing your course notes, you may wish to consult SIGGRAPH’s Publication Instructions.
- A list of potential submission categories and keywords is provided to help ensure your submission is reviewed and juried appropriately. Please select the categories and keywords carefully.
Optional: You may also provide examples of other materials, demonstrations, or exercises that support the course topics.
