How to SubmitPrint section
Submissions are due by 22:00 UTC/GMT, 13 February 2018.
You will be asked for:
- Basic Submission Information
Title, summary, submitters’ names and affiliations, and specific format information (such as a floor plan).
- An Abstract
This is a document (two pages maximum) that outlines what SIGGRAPH 2018 attendees will see and experience. A good abstract serves as an overview of your submission, provides background information, describes the problem (if any) and proposed solution, and discusses prior work and the novelty of your submission.
- A Presentation Format
Please select “Installation” as your presentation format and select the Installation Category.
- A Representative Image and Summary
Please include a 300-word description of your submission that we can use in promotional materials if your work is accepted, as well as an image that illustrates an important aspect of your project. See Representative Image Guidelines. You may supply up to six images if they will help clarify your submission.
- A Representative Video
Each submission should include a polished video that explains the significance or importance of your submission in a concise manner. See Evaluation (tab below) for details on how to make a compelling video. Videos must be uploaded at 720p (1280×720), using either MPEG-4, AAC, or H.264 encoding and should not exceed 200 MB. Maximum duration is three minutes. Please take time to light and shoot your video as carefully as possible, because we might use excerpts of it in the official Emerging Technologies Preview Video Trailer, which will encourage attendees to come see all of Emerging Technologies.
- A Date of Completion
When you submit your work, it should be complete. Please include your expected date of completion if your work is currently unfinished. Please note that your work should be complete enough to fully demonstrate its success and give us the confidence that it will be ready to show.
- A Floor Plan
This should include size, space, and environmental requirements to display your work. Please indicate where you would like to place tables, chairs, your demo space, lighting requirements, and any equipment that needs to be suspended above the floor. It is important to label the plan with dimensions, and you may use whichever unit of length you are comfortable with (meters or feet).
- A Logistics Plan
This plan further describes requirements for your proposed demo. Important details must include unique staging and handling concerns, time required to set up, diagrams for space utilization (including any overhead requirements, such as clearances or hanging suspensions), number of people required to set up and/or present, dependence on radio/wireless control elements, or any other aspects of your demo. If in doubt, no detail is too small to include here for conference planners. Remember: If your proposal is accepted, your demo must be presented for several days, so please make sure you include chairs for each presenter in your group in the space layout.
Other important submission information:
- Non-native English speakers are highly encouraged to use the English Review Services to help improve the text of submissions. Please note that this process takes time, so plan far ahead in order to meet the submission deadline.
- For more information about uploading files for your submission, please see Uploading Files.
- If your project is accepted, you are required to have at least one person present at all times during the conference. This includes lunch times, as the venue does not close down until the end of the day.
- Educator’s Resources Submission option. Those submitting content to a SIGGRAPH conference have the option of donating materials of educational value to ACM SIGGRAPH online resources for the benefit of the education community. Learn more.
