Papers Program

Over the past three decades, the ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics and Games has showcased exceptional progress from academic and industrial research covering all aspects of interactive computer graphics. This year, 21 papers will be presented at I3D. 16 papers were selected from the 45 submissions to the traditional I3D review process, undergoing rigorous peer review by a committee of 46 experts from academia and industry. Additionally, the authors of 5 recent JCGT papers will also present their work. Accepted papers span a broad gamut of topics in computer graphics including interaction, geometry processing, simulation, animation, illumination and rendering.

This year, we continue our collaboration with IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. A selection of I3D papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of TVCG. We are also continuing our partnership with the Journal of Computer Graphics Techniques. Some papers originally published in JCGT will be presented in the I3D plenary session, and a selection of I3D papers will also be invited to submit extended versions for publication in JCGT. We hope these partnerships will continue bringing additional attention to I3D and the quality of the work published here.

Best paper presentation awards will be voted by attendees at the end of the symposium.
