CHICAGO — SIGGRAPH 2018, which will take place in Vancouver, BC, from August 12th through the 16th, has announced a call for submissions for the 45th conference, as well as two program expansions.
New this year, the Educators Focus Area is seeking Groovy Graphics Assignments, which aim to offer educators the opportunity to share successes and enhance learning and collaboration on an international scale. The 2018 show will also mark a shift for the popular VR Village, which is expanding beyond virtual reality to focus on more interactive technology. The expanded program is now known as the Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality program.
“Over the years, a long legacy of scientists, thinkers, artists, engineers, and visionaries have made SIGGRAPH the best place to experience the bleeding edge of computer animation and interactive techniques,” says Roy C. Anthony, SIGGRAPH 2018’s conference chair. “I invite our community to continue inspiring the next generation of dreamers and thinkers by submitting work to this summer’s conference.”
Currently open programs and deadlines are as follows:
- February 13th – Appy Hour, Courses, Emerging Technologies, Groovy Graphics Assignments, Panels, Student Volunteers, Studio, Talks
- April 3rd – Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality; Computer Animation Festival VR Theater
- April 10th – Real-Time Live!
