Artists and designers are experimenting with computer technology in many
imaginative ways. In short presentations followed by questions and answers,
Artist/Designer Sketches will focus on stimulating and interesting uses of
computer technology. These sessions will explore the challenge of applying
digital technology to artistic, entertainment, and communication processes.

Works in progress, special creative and production problems, unique
challenges encountered in developing unusual applications -- all of these
and other related topics are encouraged in Artist/Designer Sketches

Proposals will be reviewed by members of the Art Gallery, Interactive
Entertainment, and Interactive Communities committees. Submissions will be
judged primarily on their potential to contribute new ideas and experiments
by artists and designers. Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes.
Audio/visual equipment will be available for those who need 35 mm slide
projectors, video displays, and overhead projectors.

1. Your submission must include a cover page, six copies of the proposal,
and a signed SIGGRAPH 95 Permission to Use Form. The cover page must
contain the title of the Artist/Designer Sketch, author name(s) and
affiliation(s), and a summary of the proposal (no more than 30 words).
Proposals may not be submitted by email or fax.
2. Maximum proposal length is two letter-size (8.5-inch by 11-inch) or A4
pages of double-spaced type no smaller than 12 point.
3. The proposal may also include examples of visual material. Recommended:
one sheet of 35 mm slides.
4. Proposals must be received by 6 pm Pacific Daylight Time, Wednesday, 31

Important note to authors outside the United States:
Plan your submission carefully to ensure that it will arrive on time.
Customs delays of two weeks can occur. When time is short, consider using a
private courier. Customs labels should bear the words: "Educational
material with no commercial value." SIGGRAPH 95 will not pay any customs
fees, duties, or tariffs incurred by your submission.

The Artist/Designer Sketches venue is a place to share new ideas and works
in progress. To ensure that participation here does not prevent any future
publications, SIGGRAPH will not publish the presentations from this event
beyond a schedule published in the SIGGRAPH 95 Program and Buyer's Guide,
giving the time, location, title, and the 30-word summary for each
presentation. Artists are welcome to bring handout material of any kind.

Artists and designers will be notified of the committee's decision by
Wednesday, 14 June 1995.

Authors of accepted Artist/Designer Sketches receive Exhibits Plus
registrations, which include admission to Artist/Designer Sketches, Art
Gallery, Interactive Entertainment, Interactive Communities, Screening
Rooms of the Computer Animation Festival, and the Exhibition.
