Submission Deadline: 1 August 2022, 23:59 AoE

The Technical Communications program is SIGGRAPH Asia’s forum for presenting novel work that does not easily fit into the Technical Papers session. We are looking for new and thought-provoking ideas, valuable know-how from production work, and new applications that are interdisciplinary, at the intersections of graphics with vision, image, video, visualization, AI, HCI, AR, VR, CAD, and many others.

A Technical Communication combines a short format written document with an oral presentation where presenters can interact with leading international experts in academia and industry. We seek the best recent work in computer graphics research and development, including:

  • Geometry and Modelling
  • Animation, Performance Capture, and Motion Synthesis
  • Lighting, Rendering and Material Representations
  • Computer Vision and Image Understanding
  • Machine Learning Techniques for Computer Graphics
  • Image and Video Processing Applications
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality Computer-Aided Design
  • Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization
  • Multimedia Applications
  • Video Gaming

This year, under the theme of Colorful World, we also particularly invite submissions related to:

  • Color
  • Diversity
  • Aesthetics

Should I submit my work to Technical Papers, Technical Communications or Posters program?

Please do not wait until the last minute to upload your files.

For more information about uploading files for your submission, please see Uploading Files

Sorting Topic
The Technical Communications Chair will use the Sorting Topic to assign your submission to reviewers who are best able to assess your work. Please be as accurate as possible when specifying it.

Dual submissions
The Technical Communications program is dedicated to presenting new, unpublished work. Work that is under review elsewhere (for example, to a journal or another conference) cannot be submitted to the Technical Communications program. Such dual submissions are widely considered unethical.

Submissions with new, incremental results based on previous publications are a common occurrence. As usual, one would need to reference the original paper(s) and clearly explain what in the submission is new. To be accepted, the jury expects about 50% new material that goes beyond the previous publication.

Your submission must include the following materials and information:

  • A maximal four-page document describing your work (PDF): this self-contained document, formatted according to the SIGGRAPH template for Technical Papers. It should explain your contribution, emphasize what is novel about it, and explain the concept or the technique, using appropriate figures, tables, results, and references.
  • You will be assigned a Submission ID number when you create an Online Submission Form and this number will be used to identify your submission throughout the review process. In all other ways, the document must be in the final format. Submissions that are more than four-pages (Including the references) or that are improperly formatted will not be considered.
  • One representative image (JPG) suitable for use on the conference website and promotional materials: All submissions shall include a representative digital image that shall be of the highest print quality possible, pixel resolution of at least 1500 x 1200 (at least 300 dpi at 5 inches wide, with depth proportional) or the highest possible screen grab. Images must be submitted in JPG format.
  • One web image: In JPG or PNG format max. 200 KB for website publication. Up to three supplementary materials (OPTIONAL): The maximal four-page document must stand alone as an overview of the submission. But in many cases, providing extra material could help the jury to evaluate the work. Accordingly, authors may provide supporting material in the form of video, images, and/or further documentation:
    • Images: Authors may provide high-resolution images to demonstrate their work. They must be in one of these formats: TIFF, JPEG. PNG, BMP, or GIF.
    • Video: All submitters are encouraged to provide video demonstrations of their projects when available. The video may be uploaded in one or more separate files. We can only accommodate videos in QuickTime, MPEG-4, or DivX Version 5 (or later) formats. The total length of all videos should not exceed five minutes. Please make sure to check maximum allowed file size in the submission form.
    • Please check size limit on the submissions (main files, additional materials, etc.) in the submission form before you prepare your submissions.
    • Documentation: In some cases, results can best be conveyed as a document with images, graphs, charts, and so forth. Supporting documentation should be in PDF format, up to two pages long, and should contain mostly captioned figures or tables. Please refrain from submitting an expanded paper, as the jury will not have time to read it.
    • We do not impose size limit on the submissions, but you are advised not to go beyond 100MB unless you really need to show high-resolution results in your submission since the reviewers may have hard time downloading your files.

English Review Service
If English is not your first language; you may use the English Review Service to help with the text of submissions. Please note that this takes time, so your submission should be sent to the English Review Service well before the final deadline.

Educator's Resources Submission option
Those submitting content to a SIGGRAPH conference have the option of donating materials of educational value to ACM SIGGRAPH online resources for the benefit of the education community. Learn more.
