CALL: SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 Emerging Technologies

>> Call for participation:
>> Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan
>> 16-19 December 2009
>> /
>> SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 welcomes contributors and volunteers to
>> participate in the 2nd edition of the annual SIGGRAPH Asia
>> Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive
>> Techniques.
>> ACM SIGGRAPH is now presenting two conferences each year. The
>> first SIGGRAPH Asia, in December in Singapore, quickly established
>> SIGGRAPH’s new event in Asia as one of the world’s two leading
>> annual showcases for the next wave of interactive technologies.
>> In Yokohama, SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 will present technological
>> innovations that will change the way we work, live, and play. Let
>> your work be experienced by thousands of attendees from throughout
>> the world!
>> Emerging Technologies shares an overall theme with the Art
>> Gallery: Adaptation. For SIGGRAPH Asia 2009, we are seeking works
>> that show how digital technology adapts, or can help us adapt, to
>> a world in flux. Adaptation can have many meanings, from machines
>> that repair themselves under stress to technologies that help
>> humans survive in adverse conditions. Adaptations can also be
>> unexpected or unwanted. We are particularly interested in seeing
>> examples of how computer graphics and interactive techniques are
>> evolving to adapt to new conditions: technical, social,
>> environmental, or something else entirely.
>> We are looking for creative, innovative technologies and
>> applications in many fields, including:
>> * Audio
>> * Biotech and biologically inspired technology
>> * Computer graphics and animation
>> * Context-aware applications
>> * Design
>> * Displays
>> * Games
>> * High-speed networking
>> * Interaction technology
>> * Mobile technology
>> * Physical computing
>> * Robots
>> * Ubiquitous computing
>> * Virtual and mixed reality
>> Feel free to submit even if your work is not covered by the above
>> list! If it is new, cool, and exciting, we want to see it at
>> SIGGRAPH Asia 2009!
>> The main form of presentation at Emerging Technologies is live,
>> working, hands-on demonstrations. It is essential that your work
>> can be effectively demonstrated by the time the conference opens
>> in December. To ensure this, the submission process requires all
>> submitters to provide extensive technical, logistical, and
>> practical documentation. Running an Emerging Technologies demo is
>> hard work, but it is also very rewarding. Your work will be
>> experienced by thousands of people, and thousands more will learn
>> about it in international media reports.
>> We invite submissions from academic institutions, corporations,
>> and individuals. All submissions will be reviewed by experts in
>> relevant fields, and the final selections will be made by a jury.
>> In addition to submitted works, a portion of the exhibition will
>> be curated; please contact the Emerging Technologies Chair if you
>> have suggestions for curated works! Juried and curated works will
>> be clearly distinguished in the conference program.
>> The members of the SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 Emerging Technologies Jury are:
>> Mark Billinghurst, HIT Lab New Zealand
>> Cynthia Breazeal, MIT Media Lab
>> Paul Debevec, USC Institute for Creative Technologies
>> Tom Igoe, New York University
>> Jun Rekimoto, The University of Tokyo
>> Kimiko Ryokai, University of California, Berkeley
>> Albrecht Schmidt, University of Duisburg-Essen
>> Annika Waern, Interactive Institute
>> Accepted Emerging Technologies works will be presented as on-going
>> demonstrations throughout SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 in Yokohama.
>> Technical support will be provided to make the most of each demo.
>> If your work is accepted, you will have the opportunity to give a
>> technical presentation, advertised in the conference program.
>> Press tours and other media outreach will be organized to further
>> increase awareness and publicity. A promotional video will be
>> widely distributed, and a description of each exhibit will be
>> published online and in a printed catalog. Additionally, we will
>> seek to offer selected works the opportunity to be published as
>> peer-reviewed papers in an edited special issue of an academic
>> journal.
>> The submission deadline is 5 June, 23:59 UTC/GMT. The jury’s
>> decisions will be announced in early August.
>> Full submission details can be found at: /
