Art Papers

Submission Deadline: 30 June 2024, 23:59 AoE (Closed)

Call for Papers

This is the first Art Paper program of SIGGRAPH Asia in Tokyo! The conference theme, “Curious Minds,” applies to both artists exploring new technologies and critics evaluating their effectiveness and meaning. In following our curiosity, we artists have misused the system, hacked devices, devised unusual algorithms and processes, and expressed new colours and forms. What motivates our curiosity, and what are the consequences of our efforts? Why obsess over something that no one else seems to care about, or doesn’t have immediate or practical value? Why do something that someone else finds disturbing? Why here and now? Why you? What roles do artists and critics have in shaping the future of computer graphics and interactive techniques? The Art Papers program invites to share your ideas in short or long papers in Tokyo.

The Art Paper Program accepts articles in the following categories:

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

The following topics are also welcome:

  • Visual, interactive, procedural, narrative media arts
  • Installations, performances, public events
  • Built environments, immersive worlds, hybrid experiences
  • Embodied, affective, biological interfaces and effects
  • Libraries, archives, museums, galleries, exhibitions
  • Cultural heritage sites, memorials, testimonies
  • Education, documentary, journalism, activism
  • Visualization, sonification, hapticization, physicalization of data
  • Generative, collaborative, autonomous authoring systems
  • Identity formation and deformation
  • Projects that would not be eligible to show at SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery due to budget, logistics, etc.
These papers will be published as part of the proceedings on the ACM Digital Library.

General Submission Policies

For more details on SIGGRAPH Asia’s General Submission Policies, please go to SIGGRAPH Asia’s Submission Information page.


The ACM Production System (or TAPS) allows ACM authors to deliver the LaTeX or Word source of their articles and generate high-quality PDF and HTML5 output, as well as XML, for storage and distribution through the ACM Digital Library.

The introduction of the consolidated ACM article template in 2017 was an important building block for the future of the ACM Digital Library, as it made more consistent the underlying metadata that is a part of an author’s source material – the LaTeX commands and Word styles an author uses in the preparation of their article defines the various parts of their article: the title, the authors, the section headings, and so on. More information on the ACM article template, including links to the templates and “best practices,” can be found at this link.

Kindly refer to this website for a comprehensive guide on how to prepare your paper.


All contributors to SIGGRAPH Asia Annual Conferences are now required to use ACM’s rights management system to grant rights to publish accepted content rather than through the SIGGRAPH Asia Submission System. Essentially, submission tracking, jury review, and acceptance remain the same, but now the rights management is through ACM, the parent organization of SIGGRAPH Asia.

You will be asked to complete an ACM rights management form, which includes permission to record and distribute the audio and video of your recorded presentation through official channels of ACM/SIGGRAPH Asia. For most content types, this will be a Permission and Release form, which allows authors to retain copyright

As a contributor to an ACM-sponsored event, the following expectations apply to you, should your content be accepted for presentation:

  • You have the permission to use everything that is in your presentation. This includes securing permission to use third-party material, and providing documentation of that permission to ACM.(More Information On The Proper Use Of Third-Party Material In Your Presentation)
  • If you are using copyrighted musical compositions in your presentation, you must secure performing rights licenses.
  • You must have the authority to grant ACM the right to distribute your presentation.

Once your contribution is accepted, you will receive a link via email to the appropriate form for your contribution.

Submitters will receive acceptance and rejection notices via email. Detailed information and instructions will then be sent to submitters along with the acceptance letter.

Presenter and Contributor Recognition

Presenters / Contributors of each accepted submission must register for at least one conference pass. Please visit our registration page to view the various registration categories for each program.

Please see the Recognition Benefits for a summary of what you will receive if your work and/or proposal are accepted by SIGGRAPH Asia 2024.

Once your contribution is accepted, you will receive a link via email to the appropriate form for your contribution. You will be required to prepare the final print-ready file following the specifications in the acceptance notification.


All work selected for the SIGGRAPH Asia Art Paper will also be documented in the SIGGRAPH Asia website and ACM Digital Library.

Other Details

You will be able to update your basic submission information so that it can be included in the conference program and website. This information needs to be finalized two weeks after acceptance.

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.
