We are looking for high-quality research papers that introduce new ideas to the field and stimulate future trends. The SIGGRAPH Technical Papers program is a premier international forum for disseminating new scholarly work in computer graphics and interactive techniques. So, submitted papers must be novel (they cannot overlap substantially with any paper previously accepted for publication or under review by any conference or journal during the SIGGRAPH review process), and they must adhere to the highest scientific standards.
In addition to the core topics of modeling, animation, rendering, imaging, and human-computer interaction, we encourage submissions from areas related to computer graphics: scientific visualization, information visualization, computer-aided design, computer vision, audio, robotics, and applications such as film special effects and computer games. This list is not exhaustive. As always, excellence of the ideas is the predominant acceptance criterion.
For more information about what topics are encouraged for submission and what changes have been made to the submission process, please refer to the list of Frequently Asked Questions. If you cannot find an answer to your question there, feel free to contact the Technical Papers Chair.
