Submission Deadline: 27 June 2022, AoE

For over 30 years SIGGRAPH Courses have been the premier source for practitioners, developers, researchers, scientists, engineers, artists, and students who want to learn about state-of-the-art computer graphics and related topics. For SIGGRAPH Asia 2022, hundreds of attendants will attend its courses to broaden and deepen their knowledge, and to learn the secrets behind the newest techniques.

The SIGGRAPH Asia 2022 Courses program aims to help push the boundaries of Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques by providing master classes by leading international experts from academia and industry. Courses may target any level of expertise (from beginner to expert) as presenters distil key concepts and ideas into self-contained presentations.

We particularly welcome courses that embrace the ‘COLORFUL WORLD’ theme of SIGGRAPH Asia 2022, however that may be interpreted. Courses can fulfil many educational roles and cover a wide range of relevant topics, including:

  • Innovative ideas and novel paradigms,
  • Different areas of computer science, e.g., big data, machine learning, vision, and others,
  • Other disciplines, from art to design, from science to technology and engineering,
  • Initiation to related skills, e.g., storytelling, visual psychology, and
  • Focus on different applications, e.g., gaming, manufacturing, medicine, cultural heritage, etc.

Courses should be short (1 hour 45 minutes) or half-day long (3 hours 45 minutes). We are not accepting proposals for full-day courses. We welcome presenters from different to learn from their unique perspective on the topic. Note that courses usually fall into one of the following categories:

Introductory: An introduction to a topic, suitable for attendees with little or no background in that area. These courses can range from basic topics through more advanced concepts. The important criteria for this type of course are that it should guide attendees through the material in a sensible way and not assume substantial prior knowledge in that specific topic. For cases where the material is not considered “core” computer graphics, the proposers must clearly demonstrate how SIGGRAPH Asia participants would benefit from the course.

State-of-the-art: Best practices and state-of-the-art methodologies for computer graphics professionals. These are advanced courses presenting the best the field can offer to professionals in a specific subfield. Proposers should demonstrate that there is likely sufficiently many participants in the subfield to make the course attractive.

New trends: Consolidation of a new and emerging research trend. This type of course can guide new researchers in the area and help facilitate transfers to practical applications.

Hands-on: A course that provides opportunities for attendees to learn by doing, through the industry's most-popular technologies. They are intended for a limited audience on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are considering such a course proposal, please contact us prior to the submission deadline to discuss suitability and any special arrangements needed.

Your proposal should be tailored to the specific topic and its relevance to the attendees. Therefore, if you feel that your course does not fit the above options, please contact us and we will be happy to provide suggestions and feedback.

Proposals for courses that have been presented at previous SIGGRAPH or SIGGRAPH Asia conferences are welcome. In such cases, the proposal needs to provide justification why the course should be repeated at SIGGRAPH Asia 2022.

SIGGRAPH Asia attendees are both local and international. They include established industry professionals, students, professors, researchers, engineers, producers, and artists. Their expectations are diverse, and no course can attract all delegates. We are looking for outstanding courses, at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels, on SIGGRAPH's most popular and fundamental topics.

Format
Courses are presented in two basic formats:

  • Short (1 hour and 45 minutes) - we recommend a single lecturer for a Short Course
  • Half-Day (3 hours and 45 minutes including one 15-minute break) - we recommend two to three lecturers for a Half-Day Course.

Language
The official language of SIGGRAPH Asia 2022 is English. Verbal presentations, slide presentations, and course notes are expected to be in English.

Video Presentations
As SIGGRAPH Asia would be a Hybrid event, a video presentation will be a prerequisite for all submissions. Depending on the requirements of your program, a pre-recorded video presentation or supplementary video will be used and presented at SIGGRAPH Asia. This will allow your work to gain extensive coverage and give our global community the opportunity to learn about your submission.
