General Submission Preparation
*************************************

We have designed the submission process to save you time, dissolve boundaries among traditional programs and afford you the best possible jury evaluation. You can now describe your work once and propose that it be evaluated for multiple presentation formats.

In addition to the typical materials that make up a submission, you must craft and classify your submission in three ways.
1. Submission Areas as defined by our conference themes
2. Submission Categories
3. Presentation Formats

*** Submission Areas *** are themes of high impact to community audiences. Important for SIGGRAPH 2008 are: Complexity and Accessibility, Future History, Global Responsibility, Impact on Society, Professional Development and Education, SIGGRAPH Core, Slow Art, Computer Animation Festival.

For in-depth descriptions of each of these areas follow the right sidebar links on this page www.siggraph.org/s2008/submissions/

*** Submission Categories *** will aid in the jury process and help us to cluster your contributions with other similar proposals for best possible evaluation.

For category definitions read here www.siggraph.org/s2008/submissions/juried/categories.php

*** Presentation Formats *** allow you to identify the most relevant channels for bringing accepted content to the SIGGRAPH audience. We encourage you to specify as many formats as are appropriate for a given submission.
