Writing your first ACM SIGGRAPH / TOG paper

by the SIGGRAPH RCDC Research Guides Team

You are about to write your first ACM SIGGRAPH / TOG research paper. Congratulations on making it all the way here! We know that this is a daunting task. There are a lot of moving parts to a successful paper submission, and the required steps can often seem complicated and intransparent to a first-time submitter. The goal of this series of guides is to provide a gentle introduction to all the tasks you need to perform in order to submit your article and get it published.

Of course, these guides are no replacement to the official ACM author’s guide, ACM TOG author’s guide, and ACM SIGGRAPH author’s guide. Please refer to these documents for the actual binding submission guidelines.

We wish you success with your submission, and can’t wait to see your exciting research at SIGGRAPH / TOG!
