Papers Program

ACM Digital Library:
Proceedings of the ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics and Games (I3D 2019)

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, we continue a track record of excellence with 24 high-quality papers selected by the international paper committee for publication and presentation at the conference.

Invited papers

The program also includes 6 papers originally published in the Journal of Computer Graphics Techniques (JCGT) and 2 papers from the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG).


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