The paper submission deadline was Nov. 1, 2006. Paper Review Website

Call For Papers:
We solicit papers that present original research related to all techniques that combine 3D computer graphics with human interaction, explicitly including (but not limited to) research that has applicability for 3D games. A more detailed list of potential topics can be found in the Call for Participation. Original papers are limited to 8 full-color pages. The submission of a video to accompany the paper is encouraged. Papers will be peer-reviewed in a single-blind process and authors notified by e-mail.

Papers should be prepared following the ACM SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines , with the proviso that we will only accept Category 2 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the "Proceedings of the 2007 Symposium in Interactive 3D Graphics," an archival-quality proceedings distributed by the ACM.

250 word abstracts were due Sunday, October 22. Please be certain to indicate keywords matching your paper's topic, which will assist us in ensuring knowledgable reviews of your paper. Abstracts are required before the submission of a full paper. Final paper submissions were due Wednesday, November 1.
