Make an Impression
The SIGGRAPH Asia Doctoral Consortium is a forum for Ph.D. students to meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced SIGGRAPH Asia researchers in an informal and interactive setting. Ideal applicants will be within a year of completing their PhD and well into their dissertation research. Accepted students will receive a complimentary registration to the full SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 conference.

The doctoral consortium committee will select approximately six students to participate. Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions at the meeting. Each applicant should provide a short-written paper (no more than four pages (including references) in the official SIGGRAPH Asia publication format, as described in the author’s guide. Note that a doctoral consortium submission, unlike a paper submission, is not anonymous; doctoral consortium submissions should be single-authored, where the student applying is the sole author. This paper should describe ongoing work and might summarize the full dissertation work, or highlight a particular aspect of the work in depth.

Each student will be expected to give a short presentation of their work (15 minutes), which will be followed by a discussion with the panel and the other student participants. Each participating student will also be asked to prepare a poster describing their work for presentation in the SIGGRAPH Asia posters program. Submissions will be accepted through Monday, 8 October 2018.
