Digital Art Panels

The Graphite 2007 Conference will be accepting panel presentations that address contemporary, historical, theoretical, philosophical and technical issues related digital art. Panels provide a unique opportunity to see and respond to viewpoints from both the technical and artistic communities. A successful panel should be novel and provoke discussion between the audience and the panel members. 

Each panel session will feature three or four panelists who present their views of the topic, a moderator who presents the panelists with questions, and an audience that provides additional questions from the floor. 

Digital Art Papers

Paper submissions should address issues relevant to the development, display, interpretation and status of digital art and its relationship to culture, science, math, or the humanities. Graphite is looking for papers that cross boundaries and merge technical and artistic considerations. The Graphite conference is a unique mix of computer scientists, researchers, industry specialists, animators, and artists therefore papers that appeal to a diverse audience within the field of computer graphics will be considered highly.


Papers should describe original and unpublished work. Authors should submit a manuscript electronically as a PDF file. The paper should not exceed 8 pages single spaced in length including images, figures, tables and references.
Paper submissions must be anonymised to facilitate blind review. Authors are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimise references that may reveal the identity of the authors or their institutions.
The paper should only include the title of the paper. Authors' names, affiliations, postal addresses, e-mail addresses and the contact person for the paper will be submitted separately through the online submission system along with the PDF version of the paper.

Short Papers/Sketches

Short papers/sketches are intended to allow authors to present work which is perhaps more applied, or in a less finalised state, in order to expose ideas and generate discussion and debate with other delegates. They should be no more than 4 pages long.

Short papers will also be published in the conference proceedings but will be identified as shorter contributions.
Paper Format

The format of papers and short papers should conform to the style for "Conferences sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH" described at
