You will be notified of acceptance or rejection by the end of April 2020.
If your Immersive Pavilion installation is accepted, you must prepare and submit a revised, two-page abstract. This abstract must be submitted to TAPS by 8 May 2020. Please prepare your abstract using these templates and instructions. For your reference, here is a well-formatted example. If your revised abstract is not delivered to TAPS by 8 May 2020, you may not be allowed to present at SIGGRAPH 2020.
If accepted to the Immersive Pavilion space, you are expected to bring sufficient personnel and staff for your installation, demonstration, or performance throughout the open hours of the conference. You will be required to have at least one person present at your installation at all times while the Immersive Pavilion is open, if determined by the Jury. This includes lunchtimes, as the venue does not close down until the end of the day. This also includes Experience Presentation times, if your submission was also accepted for an Experience Presentation.
Booth Staffing Is Required for the Following Conference Hours:
Sunday, 19 July, 1:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
Monday, 20 July, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, 21 July, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, 22 July, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
Thursday, 23 July, 10 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Travel support is not provided. Limited conference registration is available for selected project contributors. Please review the SIGGRAPH 2020 Recognition Policy.
Before SIGGRAPH 2020, all accepted presenters will receive an Organization and Logistics Guide. This document includes details on shipping, insurance, set-up, rehearsals, on-site policies, and tear-down.
Networking, Computing, Space, and Supply Needs
You will need to bring your own equipment and materials for your installation, demonstration, or performance. Network connections can be provided, but requirements must be outlined in the original submission.
Shipping Equipment and Logistics
You are responsible for bringing or shipping any necessary equipment to Washington, D.C. and for return shipment. You must also complete shipping, insurance, and other required forms and return them in a timely manner upon acceptance.
Contributor Logo Usage
SIGGRAPH 2020 will provide an informational sign for all installations within the Experience Hall. (Includes installation title, contributor’s names and company along with a 50 word description. A logo is not included.) If a contributor would like an additional sign beyond what SIGGRAPH provides, please review the Policy for 2020 below:
SIGGRAPH offers contributors the opportunity to create one (1) additional sign, at the contributor’s expense, to recognize the contributing organization of your submission. In fairness to all contributors, contributors wishing to create additional signs must adhere to the following rules when producing the promotional sign:
- One sign is permitted per installation.
- Sign should be no larger than 22” x 28”.
- Your organization’s logo is permitted on the sign up to 12” x 12”.
- Multiple organization logos also must fit within the 12” x 12” space.
- If your installation requires use of a screen, the screen may use a logo up to 6” x 6”.
Failure to adhere to these rules will result in management requesting the sign or inappropriate branding be covered or removed. If an additional cost is required to do so, it will be at the contributors expense.
