Following the success of the Virtual and Augmented Reality category at previous SIGGRAPH Asia conferences, a new Extended Reality (XR) program has been established at SIGGRAPH Asia 2019. This will provide an opportunity for attendees to explore emerging media and cutting-edge technologies in XR such as Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality. The SIGGRAPH Asia XR program offers a highly visible and interactive venue to present the latest in XR emerging digital media and interactive technologies.
We are looking for the best of XR content to showcase at SIGGRAPH Asia XR. This includes state-of-the-art solutions for interactive technologies, immersive installations, storytelling, new approaches for creative expression, novel displays, and collaboration within Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality Environments. If you are doing anything innovative in the XR space, we would love to show your work at SIGGRAPH Asia 2019.
Submissions will be accepted in the following categories:
New this year: All accepted demonstrations and posters at the SIGGRAPH Asia XR program will also be given an opportunity to present their work in a special oral presentation session at the conference.
Before you prepare a proposal, please carefully review these topics of interest for SIGGRAPH Asia Extended Reality (XR):
The Extended Reality (XR) is interested in submissions that can be an interactive one-on-one experience, a group experience, or a presentation that features a few participants with multiple onlookers, and can be explored interactively at a personal computer or mobile device with a head-mounted display (HMD) with minimal setup.

Submissions will be evaluated on the following criteria:
A jury will select the top-rated submissions for presentation at SIGGRAPH Asia, and all submitters will be notified of their submission status: accepted, conditionally accepted, or rejected. In all cases, the jury will provide detailed feedback to submitters.
In very rare cases, submissions may be conditionally accepted. If your work is conditionally accepted, you must demonstrate your submission to a jury member in person so that it can be measured against the criteria above. Jurors who have a conflict of interest with your submission will not be permitted to review your submission.
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.
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:

If your work is accepted for presentation at SIGGRAPH Asia:
The main form of presentation in the Extended Reality (XR) is a live demonstration, which will be available throughout the conference. You are responsible for ensuring that your demonstration is manned during all opening hours of the XR area.
The VR Theatre pieces will be shown in a special VR Theatre viewing area which will have multiple VR HMDs capable of showing 360-degree movies and immersive VR content.
We will work closely with you to insure proper and effective installation of your work. In general, accepted researchers are responsible for bringing or shipping their work to SIGGRAPH Asia in Brisbane, Australia. Contributors are also responsible for return shipping after the conference.
You are expected to bring sufficient personnel to staff the demo throughout the conference. SIGGRAPH Asia may be able to provide some student volunteer support.
If your work arrives at the conference center, and it is not as depicted in your submission or is not ready for demonstration, we reserve the right to exclude it from the XR program.
Presenters / Contributors of each accepted submission have to 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.
Presenters are expected to cover their own travel costs, which are not covered by SIGGRAPH Asia.
You can apply for a 100% discount via the submission system, one presenter per accepted submission. If additional contributors need to access the XR venue for presentation and set up purposes, they can request for experience passes that allows you to enter the XR area.

A work in progress may be submitted if it represents a large portion of the final version. Just a video prototype is not enough. A functional prototype must be demonstrated before the deadline. Please explain in detail what additions will be made prior to the installation on the extended abstract. You will need to convince the reviewers that your work will be ready for demonstration in time for the conference.
If, due to bandwidth restrictions, you cannot upload a high-resolution image or supplemental movies, please instead upload a lower-resolution version. If we need to include a higher-resolution version for reviewers' review or publication stills, we will contact you to make arrangements.
