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 provison that we will only accept Category 2 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the "Proceedings of the 2008 Symposium in Interactive 3D Graphics," an archival-quality proceedings distributed by the ACM.

The paper submission deadline is October 22, 2007.

Paper reviews are due December 1, 2007.
