Make an Impression
The SIGGRAPH Asia Doctoral Consortium is a forum for PhD students to meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced SIGGRAPH Asia researchers in an informal and interactive setting. Ideal applicants will be within a year of completing their PhD and well into their dissertation research. Accepted students will receive a complimentary registration to the full SIGGRAPH Asia 2020 conference.
Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions at the meeting. Each applicant must provide a short, written paper; no more than four pages including references, in the official SIGGRAPH Asia publication format, as described in the ACM SIGGRAPH publication guidelines. Note that a doctoral consortium submission, unlike a paper submission, is not anonymous. Doctoral consortium submissions must be single-authored, where the student applying is the sole author. This paper can summarize the full dissertation work, or highlight a particular aspect of the work in more detail.
Each student will be expected to give a short presentation of their work (15 minutes), which will be followed by a discussion with the panel and the other participants. Each participating student will also be asked to prepare a poster describing their work for presentation in the SIGGRAPH Asia posters program.
Hours: 9:00AM – 2:00PM
Submissions are due on 17 August 2020, 23:59 UTC/GMT.

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.
You will be notified of acceptance or rejection in September 2020. Detailed information and instructions, as well as deadlines, will be sent to submitters along with the acceptance email.
After acceptance, the SIGGRAPH Asia Submission System will allow you to update basic information about your work and upload any final materials for inclusion on the conference program and web site. This information needs to be finalized four weeks after acceptance.
Be prepared to deliver your final versions of your work before these dates, or your acceptance may be rescinded.
Presenter and Contributor Recognition
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.
All deadlines are 23:59 UTC/GMT.
