SIGGRAPH, the largest computer graphics conference in the country, will be hosting it's first ever conference abroad. SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 will be hosted in Singapore from December 10-13. The call for participants has begun. SIGGRAPH is looking for everything from technical papers to sketches and posters. Renderosity would love to have as many members as possible participate. Below you will find information direct from SIGGRAPH on how to submit your particular piece of work:
Art Gallery The Art Gallery welcomes submissions of printed, interactive, and networked digital art in 2D, 3D, and 4D. The programme is especially (but not exclusively) encouraging artists to submit works that deal with transformations, fusions, intersections, and paradigm shifts from Asia. The Art Gallery will facilitate an encounter with, and exchange between, different fields to showcase "hybrid" works such as space art in zero gravity, text-literature visualisation, and ubiquitous sounds. You can read the full submission requirements (and submit your work) here.
Computer Animation Festival 1. The official Competition Programme, which is a juried selection of "the best of the best" amazing works that provide insight on current international trends in computer-generated animation. 2. A special Curated Programme will showcase remarkable films, from classics to experimental explorations of the latest technologies. This special programme of short subjects and features presents an intriguing collection of world-renowned animated works. Professionals, artists, filmmakers, and researchers from throughout the world are invited to participate. You can read the full submission requirements (and submit your work) here.
Sketches & Posters Covers a broad spectrum of topics including digital art, design, science, and engineering. It encompasses ideas ranging from speculation to academic research, from industrial development and practical tools to behind-the-scenes explanations of commercial and artistic work. Whether you are toying with fuzzy what-if ideas, developing new techniques, or using existing ones in novel ways, be part of this exciting exchange of ideas and techniques! Read about requirements and submit your work here.
Technical Papers High-quality papers that will set the standard in the field of computer graphics and stimulate future trends. Accepted papers will be presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 and published as a special issue of ACM Transactions on Graphics.
