Call for Submissions: Network Your Senses at SIGGRAPH 2009


News Release: ACM SIGGRAPH 2009 invites you to Network Your Senses as a contributor or volunteer at the 36th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, 3 - 7 August 2009 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in festive New Orleans, Louisiana.

SIGGRAPH thrives because of the quality and diversity of our members, and the tremendous value of the work they produce in a wide range of disciplines. From students to studio heads, from independent artists to scientists and researchers, SIGGRAPH gives you an opportunity to present your work to colleagues, old friends, and industry peers you have yet to meet. You'll also get to see their work, and meet and socialize with them. This year we're also expanding our focus to include gaming as well as music and audio. As was done last year, SIGGRAPH will again implement a unified General Submission process that allows contributors to submit content to be evaluated across several formats.

Every piece submitted to SIGGRAPH 2009 through the Call for Submissions is reviewed by a highly qualified jury composed of top practitioners in the relevant field. Because we want each jury to have the time to review each piece carefully, submission deadlines generally are several months ahead of the conference itself. All the submission deadlines are strictly enforced, so plan ahead!
