SIGGRAPH Asia 2014 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Workshops provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of computer graphics and interactive techniques. Each workshop should generate ideas that give the community a new, organized way of thinking about a specific topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research. We particularly encourage the fostering of topics or communities that do not have a “home” in other venues. Arranging a workshop is an opportunity to move the existing field forward or to build a new community.
Workshops will take place on 3 December 2014, in Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center (main conference venue). Two workshop formats will be available: half-day and full-day. Half-day workshops should be scheduled to have two 1.5-hour sessions, with one 15-minute break. Full-day workshops should be scheduled to have four 1.5-hour sessions, with a mid-morning break, a lunch break and a mid-afternoon break.
The Workshops program is now calling for paper submissions to the following topics that will be presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2014:
- Indoor Scene Understanding
- Autonomous Virtual Humans and Social Robots for Telepresence
- Creative Shape Modeling and Design
- Designing Tools for Creating Interactive Content
City University of Hong Kong
Notice to All SIGGRAPH Asia 2014 Contributors
All contributors to SIGGRAPH Asia Annual Conferences are now required to use ACM's rights management system to grant rights to publish accepted content rather than through the online submission system. Essentially, submission tracking, jury review, and acceptance remain the same, but now the rights management is through ACM, the parent organization of SIGGRAPH Asia.
You will be asked to complete an ACM rights management form, which includes permission to record and distribute the audio and video of your recorded presentation through official channels of ACM/SIGGRAPH Asia. For most content types, this will be a Permission and Release form, which allows authors to retain copyright.
As a contributor to an ACM-sponsored event, the following expectations apply to you, should your content be accepted for presentation:
- You have the permission to use everything that is in your presentation. This includes securing permission to use third-party material, and providing documentation of that permission to ACM. (More information on the proper use of third-party material in your presentation)
- If you are using copyrighted musical compositions in your presentation, you must secure performing rights licenses.
- You must have the authority to grant ACM the right to distribute your presentation.
Once your contribution is accepted, you will receive a link via email to the appropriate form for your contribution. Good luck!
