Submission Deadline: 19 June 2023, 23:59 AoE

Call for Papers!

Theme: Crossing Thresholds

Our stories begin by crossing thresholds – waking up, leaving our homes, entering new places, navigating borders, departing one world, and entering another. Psychologists tell us that a “doorway effect” prompts forgetting as we move from one state to another, allowing us to make mental room for what comes next. This call asks for artists, scholars, critics, and technologists to linger for a while on the threshold of new and emerging technologies, looking back and looking ahead. How are developments in computer graphics and interactive techniques reshaping the stories we tell, the memories we keep, the perils we face, and the dreams we share?

Submit your best works to the Art Papers program:

  • Projects and case studies
  • New technologies and methods
  • Histories and theories
  • Critical media practices
  • Prognostications, speculations, warnings, alternate futures

The following Digital Storytelling Domains are also welcome:

ACM SIGGRAPH strives to create a welcoming and nurturing community for everyone working in computer graphics and interactive techniques independent of gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, religion, country of origin, or abilities. Work submitted to this program should be in alignment with these values.

For any submission to an ACM SIGGRAPH conference or Standing Committee activity, the person in charge (PIC) of the program should be aware of and sensitive to potential issues pertaining to the ACM SIGGRAPH values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. If an issue is identified, then the authors of the submission shall be asked to modify their submission to resolve the issue before acceptance. If the PIC is unsure if there is an issue, then they should contact the Chair of the DEI Committee for advice.
