The SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Posters provides an interactive forum for innovative ideas that are not yet fully polished, high-impact practical contributions, and offers a behind-the-scenes view of new commercial and artistic work, as well as solutions that help solve challenging problems. Contributors are expected to exhibit graphic displays of incremental, preliminary, partial, and innovative insights that are important but not fully developed. We encourage submissions from animators, developers, educators, students, and researchers from academia and industry. Typical examples include:
Please read below for more details.
Please review and carefully follow the submission requirements below. Incomplete or wrongly completed submissions will not be considered.
We strongly encourage starting the submission form well before the deadline. Please make sure to check size limit on the submissions (main files, additional materials, etc.) described in the submission form before you prepare your submissions. Submit your work before the submission deadline 12 August 2019, 23:59 UTC/GMT. All forms must be completed, and all materials must be successfully uploaded by that time. The submission deadline will be strictly enforced. Please do not wait until the last minute to upload your files.
For more information about uploading files for your submission, please see Uploading Files
The Posters Chair will use the Sorting Topic to assign your submission to reviewers who are best able to assess your work. Please be as accurate as possible when specifying it.
The SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Posters is dedicated to presenting new, unpublished work. Work that is under review elsewhere (for example, to a journal or another conference) cannot be submitted to the Posters program. Such dual submissions are widely considered unethical.
Submissions with new, incremental results based on previous publications are a common occurrence. As usual, one would need to reference the original paper(s) and clearly explain what in the submission is new. To be accepted, the jury expects about 50% new material that goes beyond the previous publication.
Your submission must include the following materials and information.
If English is not your first language; you may use the English Review Service to help with the text of submissions. Please note that this takes time, so your submission should be sent to the English Review Service well before the final deadline.
Those submitting content to a SIGGRAPH conference have the option of donating materials of educational value to ACM SIGGRAPH online resources for the benefit of the education community. Learn more.

For additional submission information, please see the FAQs.
All Posters submissions will be reviewed by a jury of academic and industry professionals in computer graphics, vision, visualization, CAD, animation, games, HCI, interactive techniques, art, and related fields. The Posters Committee is responsible for conducting the jury process in order to set up a high-quality program, with attractive posters sessions.
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 online 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.
More Information on these options (the FAQ is particularly useful)
As a contributor to an ACM-sponsored event, the following expectations apply to you, should your content be accepted for presentation:
Once your contribution is accepted, you will receive a link via email to the appropriate form for your contribution.
If your work is accepted as a poster, you will be required to prepare the final print-ready poster file following the specifications in the acceptance notification. Please note: The schedule to provide your final material after receiving the acceptance notification is very tight. We reserve the right to reject late submission of print-ready files. Please plan your personal schedule accordingly.
For guidance, we have provided the vertical template in Adobe Illustrator format. You are welcome to use these materials for general formatting suggestions. However, your abstract must also conform to these updated formatting guidelines.
For instructions about preparation and delivery of your final content for publications, see the poster format examples. Please carefully follow the instructions in the acceptance letter.
You will be able to update your basic submission information and any final materials so that it can be included in the conference program and website. This information needs to be finalized within two weeks after receipt of acceptance notifications. Please be prepared to deliver your final versions of your information and work on or before these dates.

Please see the Recognition Benefits for a summary of what you will receive if your work and/or proposal are accepted by SIGGRAPH Asia.
Presenters are expected to cover their own travel costs, which are not covered by SIGGRAPH Asia. You can apply for a 25% discount per accepted submission via the submission system. One contributor per accepted poster.
All work selected for the SIGGRAPH Asia Posters will be documented in the SIGGRAPH 2019 website and ACM Digital Library. Accepted Poster author will need to prepare a two-page abstract of your work for the ACM Digital Library as well as the physical poster to be displayed at the conference. This abstract should be a self-contained document, formatted according to the SIGGRAPH template for Technical Papers. You are welcome to submit auxiliary material along with the abstract.

The Technical Papers program is the most competitive of these three. Technical Papers give you a chance to work out your ideas at greater length and describe them in a citable archive. The Technical Briefs program provides a dynamic forum for new and thought-provoking ideas, techniques, and applications in graphics and especially at the intersections between graphics and other relevant research fields. It is ideal for presenting innovative ideas that are well polished, high-impact practical contributions that build on existing research, and cool "tricks" that help users solve challenging problems.
No, this is not necessary. Poster submissions are evaluated based on their abstracts, supporting material, and research value. If you would like to provide a digital version of your poster, you may do so as a supplementary image.
Yes! If your submission has an interactive, animation, or simulation component, we strongly encourage you to submit a video demonstrating your work in action, as it may be very difficult to evaluate your work without this. Videos can be included as part of the poster presentation session.
No. The English Review Service makes no guarantee for service turn-around. It is also administered separately from the conference program. Please schedule your work appropriately. For the best chance of having your submission reviewed by the English Review Service, please make sure it is submitted and marked "complete" in the submission system at least 14 days before your program's submission deadline.
Here are two examples of good posters and abstracts:

The organizers will print the poster as well as display it on your behalf.
Individual posters will be printed in A0 size in vertical only. The size should be 841mm x 1189mm, bleed of 3mm aside to the above. Please provide a final high-resolution PDF file suitable for print with minimum 300dpi. You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare your final print-ready file together with your acceptance notification.
A0 measures 1189 x 841 millimetres or 46.81 x 33.11 inches. In PostScript, its dimensions are rounded off to 3370 x 2384 points. Part of the ISO 216 standard A0 is part of a set or range of page sizes, called the ISO A or ISO 216 standard. This international standard is based on the German DIN 476 standard from 1922. A0 is actually often referred to as DIN A0. The Japanese have adopted the same range of paper sizes in their JIS P 0138-61 standard. The American alternative to A0 is the ANSI E-size, which is part of the ANSI/ASME Y14.1 standard. It measures 864 × 1118 mm or 34 × 44".

During the session, the poster must be staffed at all times by at least one person. All of you do not need to stand by the poster throughout the session. In fact, you may wish to “tag team”, taking turns at your own poster and seeing the other posters in the session.
Presentation timings will be from 13:00 – 14:00 on the following days, allocated at outside the Exhibition Hall 1 of Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre::- Monday, 18 November 2019- Tuesday, 19 November2019
If at all possible, both posters should have a presenter. If your submissions have co-authors and they are attending the conference, please ask them to help present. If you are the only author attending the conference, you can present a different poster at each session. You may wish to leave a note on each poster indicating the session at which you will present it.
SIGGRAPH Asia does not accept posters shipped to the convention center. The organizers will print the poster as well as display it on your behalf.
Poster presenters are encouraged to demo their work during the poster sessions.
Example of how your posters will be displayed during the conference:
You will receive detailed information regarding the exact location of your poster at the event venue.
No, there will not be any tables due to space constraints.
Poster submitters are encouraged to demo their work during the pre-scheduled Poster Sessions using their own laptop equipment, in front of their Posters.
Wireless internet access will be available throughout the event venue.
We cannot promise that AC power outlets will be available for everyone. Charge your batteries before the session.
No! The poster sessions are in unsecured open areas. Take your laptop and all your gear with you.
Yes, as long as one contributor per accepted poster is registered with a Full Conference registration and the poster can be presented by a representative of the author. If it is a collaborative submission, it is important that at least one of the authors attends the conference and presents the work. We expect poster authors to be present at the poster sessions during the pre-scheduled time periods.
