ACM SIGGRAPH invites you to contribute to the first annual SIGGRAPH Asia
conference. SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 seeks your participation as presenters and
contributors for the following programmes:

Technical Papers
The SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers Programme will continue the
tradition of excellence in computer graphics and interactive techniques
that SIGGRAPH is known for and extend this world-class experience to Asia.
We invite submissions of high-quality papers that will set the standard in
the field and stimulate future trends. Accepted papers will be presented
at SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 and published as a special issue of ACM Transactions
on Graphics.

The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers
Programme is 28 May 2008. Find out more about the submission requirements
on our website
( and
submit your work(s) now.

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.

The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Art Gallery is 20
June 2008. Submit your work(s) now.

Computer Animation Festival
The Computer Animation Festival includes two main components:

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

your work(s) for the Competition Programme by 20 June 2008.

The Courses Programme welcomes submissions that cover state-of-the-art
techniques in computer graphics and interactive interfaces including (but
not limited to) animation, computer-human interactivity, post-production,
entertainment, gaming, rendering, scientific visualisation, virtual
reality and programming hackery. We also welcome reports on recent
industrial advances and tutorials on skills and techniques for artists.

Information about the submission requirements is available on the website
( Submit
your course proposal by 19 May 2008.

Educators Programme
The aim of the Educators Programme is to create an environment that
supports innovation in the instruction of computer graphics and digital
art. Support the evolving integration of art and technology as embraced by
educators of all levels from early learning through higher education and
industry in all sub-disciplines of the field. Share ideas concerning
educational strategies as adopted in both industry and academia and help
make learning a more satisfying, productive, and meaningful process.

The deadline for submission to the SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Educators Programme
is 6 June 2008. Take note of the submission requirements
