To Submit an Installation (Sometimes referred to as "projects")
Log in to the SIGGRAPH Information System, select "Begin a New Submission," and then select "create" for the General Submission form. You will be asked for:
- Basic Submission Information
Title, summary, submitters' names and affiliations, and permissions.
- An Abstract
This is a document (two pages maximum) that outlines what SIGGRAPH 2017 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 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 and 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. If your work is interactive, please include a video in your submission.
- A Presentation Format
Please select “Installation” as your presentation format and select the Installation Category "Project in the Studio".
- 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
Required information and materials include: Size/space requirements; Lighting needs (it is important to consider and help us understand IR and other light-sensitive aspects of projects); computer, monitors, controllers, printers, micro-waves and any other hardware required to demonstrate the project. We encourage submitters to provide their own equipment. Software, plug-ins, IDE’s, or any other support software needs should be noted on the submission. Power/electrical requirements. Please include how many outlets and any specifications. Networking needs. Please include how many ethernet or WIFI connections are required. How long will the activity take an attendee to complete (approximately)? How many attendees can participate simultaneously (approximately)?
To Submit an Experience Presentation
Look for the Experience Presentation checkbox that reads: "If your installation is accepted, are you willing to also give an presentation about your installation (subject to the jury's recommendation)?" But first, carefully consider the 2017 Studio theme, Cyborg Self: Extensions, Adaptations, and Integrations of Technology Within the Body (see above). If your installation is not accepted, your Experience Presentation will also not be accepted. Giving an Experience Presentation is NOT a requirement for acceptance of your installation.
To Submit a Studio Workshop
Workshops are part of the heart of the Studio, especially those that exploit a computer classroom for practical, hands-on experiences. Workshop requirements are standardized across all programs, including workshops held in the computer classroom, to encourage high-quality submissions to all programs, including the Studio, Emerging Technologies, the Art Gallery, Games, and VR Village.
To submit a Studio Workshop, please follow the procedures for submitting a SIGGRAPH 2017 Course. In the Courses online submission form, check the box labeled: “I would like to submit a Studio Workshop”. When submitting a workshop for The Studio, please carefully consider the 2017 Studio theme, Cyborg Self: Extensions, Adaptations, and Integrations of Technology Within the Body (see above).
To Submit a Technology
We are looking for new technology that supports the theme of the 2017 Studio: Cyborg Self: Extensions, Adaptations, and Integrations of Technology Within the Body. If you would like us to consider your technology, please contact the Studio Chair.
Along with any descriptions, please include the following information:
- What is the technology (hardware, software, etc.)?
- Who is the technology intended to serve? (artists, professional studios, etc.)?
- At what stage is the technology (early prototype, on the market, etc.)?
- How does this fit in with the Cyborg Self theme?
