Press Release from SIGGRAPH 2011

(Chicago, IL) – SIGGRAPH 2011 seeks cutting-edge Real-Time Live! content to be presented at this year’s prestigious Computer Animation Festival. Examples of accepted real-time simulations and graphics submissions include:

    * Military or industrial simulations    * Interactive animation and graphics    * Research projects    * Computer games    * Real-time art explorations    * Scientific visualizations: medical, astrophysics, astronomy    * Interactive data visualization and information graphics

All content that is interactively controlled and rendered in real-time will be considered. Submissions must be able to be demonstrated in front of a live audience. "Since its debut in 2009, Real-Time Live! has featured some of the most innovative and cutting-edge work presented at SIGGRAPH’s Computer Animation Festival," said Jason Smith, SIGGRAPH 2011 Real-Time Live! Chair. "Each year the quality and diversity in real-time submissions showcases the best work going on in the industry. This year’s program will continue this trend of dynamic innovation." The Real-Time Live! submission deadline is 15 April 2011. All real-time work will be reviewed by a professional jury of industry experts from traditional computer graphics, video games, and research organizations. Entries will be judged on creativity, innovation, performance, and most importantly, the ability to render in real time in front of a live audience as part of the Computer Animation Festival. The top selections will be played and demonstrated live on their respective platform (PC, PS2, PS3, X box 360, or Nintendo Wii).
