2007 Sandbox Symposium

Call for Participation

The second annual ACM SIGGRAPH Sandbox Symposium will be co-located with SIGGRAPH 07 and will take place on 04 - 05 August 2007 in San Diego, CA. The symposium is a forum for innovative research and advances in videogame theory, practice and criticism. Video games are a singular technological medium, comparable in cultural impact to the telephone, television or the Internet. What are the creative, technological and commercial challenges facing this medium in the future? How do we relate great stories that leverage advances in technology? What is the continuing impact of this medium on individuals and society?

The call for papers and panels is past, for Sandbox 2007.

Hot Games

We seek video previews of the unreleased videogame titles. Previews should be two minutes in length and must show gameplay. Previews should be in Quicktime format, either NTSC (480p) or HDTV (720p) format. The deadline for Hot Games submissions is July 1, 2007 (see http://esub.siggraph.org/cgi-bin/cgi/esForm.html&form=30380).
