SIGGRAPH 2011 Vancouver | Art Papers

Now in its 38th year, the SIGGRAPH conference is the premier international event on computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH 2011 is expected to draw an estimated 25,000 professionals from five continents to Vancouver, British Columbia.

The SIGGRAPH conference attracts the most respected technical and creative people from all over planet Earth. The SIGGRAPH community includes people everywhere who are excited by research, science, art, animation, gaming, interactivity, education, and the web. SIGGRAPH 2011 is sponsored by The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), an educational and scientific society uniting the world's computing educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field's challenges

SIGGRAPH 2011, in collaboration with Leonardo/ISAST, features not only artists and artwork, but also the processes and theoretical frameworks for making art and contextualizing its place in society. Art Papers explore the changing roles of artists and the methods of art-making in our increasingly networked and computationally mediated world. Art Papers present excellent ideas in accessible ways. They inform artistic disciplines, set standards, and stimulate future trends.
In addition to core topics related to digital arts and interactive techniques, Art Papers can also explore the theme of SIGGRAPH 2011's juried Art Gallery: Tracing Home.

Authors present Art Papers in 20-minute sessions with five minutes of Q&A. The papers will be organized in six categories: Project Description, Thematic Survey, Application, Monograph (only if the author is no longer active), Design Methods, or Position Paper. They will be published in a special issue of Leonardo, The Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology. The issue also includes visual documentation of the works exhibited in the Art Gallery. Publication of this third special issue coincides with SIGGRAPH 2011.
Submissions are due by 22:00 UTC/GMT, 14 January 2011.
