Ph.D. students meet and discuss work with one another and a panel of experienced SIGGRAPH researchers.

Submissions Closed

A Day of Feedback and Collaboration

The ACM SIGGRAPH Doctoral Consortium is a forum for Ph.D. students to meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced ACM SIGGRAPH researchers in an informal and interactive setting. Ideal applicants will be within a year of completing their Ph.D. and well into their dissertation research. Accepted students will receive a complimentary full conference registration.

The Doctoral Consortium committee will select approximately eight students to participate. Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions at the meeting. Each applicant should provide a short written paper (no more than four pages (including references) in the official ACM SIGGRAPH publication format, as described in the author’s guide. Note that a doctoral consortium submission, unlike a paper submission, is not anonymous; doctoral consortium submissions should be single-authored, where the student applying is the sole author. This paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the full dissertation work, or highlight a particular aspect of the work in depth.

Each student will be expected to give a short presentation of their work (20-25 min), which will be followed by extensive discussion with the panel and the other student participants. Each participating student will also be asked to prepare a poster describing their work for presentation in the ACM SIGGRAPH posters program.
