Nature of Content
How should I write up work that is based on a recent paper I wrote but extends that work?
Please reference the original paper(s) and clearly explain how the new work differs from, extends, or improves the previous work.
Can I submit work that I did for my thesis?
Yes. See Work Submitted Elsewhere if some or all of your thesis work has been formally published.
My company sells educational software. Can we make a sales presentation?
No. The Exhibition is the best place for that.
I have a great idea for a presentation, but I’m not sure if it’s appropriate (too basic, advanced, fuzzy, etc.) for SIGGRAPH 2018.
Please consider reviewing the various programs and their submission requirements to understand how your presentation might fit into SIGGRAPH 2018. Please also consider contacting the program chairs for additional information or answers to questions about your potential submission.
My Technical Paper was rejected. Can I submit an abstract about the same work for possible presentation elsewhere in the conference?
Some submission deadlines will be closed by that time.
My company has a great new product that is of general interest to the SIGGRAPH community. Can I submit an abstract?
A simple product announcement or sales pitch would not be appropriate for the conference program. However, a methods or systems description that presents the engineering design and algorithms behind the product could be appropriate. If you are an exhibitor interested in a presentation on all aspects of your new product, please contact Exhibition Management about organizing an Exhibitor Session.
English is not my first language. Can I submit and present in another language?
No, but ACM SIGGRAPH’s International Committee can provide help with English. Please see the English Review Service.
Should all submissions be prepared anonymously, like Technical Papers?
No. The review process is single blind, which means the reviewers will know who the authors are, but the authors will not know who the reviewers are. Your submission should be as close to its final form as possible (see Completeness, Work in Progress), including the names of all collaborators on the work and their institutions. Potential conflicts of interest are taken into account when submissions are assigned to reviewers.
