Call for General Submissions

Expressive 2017 will continue to host a gallery for 2D and 3D artworks, sculptures, animations, posters and demonstration projects, where artist installations and computational demonstrations will be featured side-by-side. In this category, we focus on recent research and creative activities at the intersection of arts and sciences. We are open to any work that is related to topics of the Expressive 2017 conferences (Computational Aesthetics, Sketch-Based Interfaces and Modeling, and Non-Photorealistic Animation and Rendering). The authors of accepted works will be invited to present their work through a panel discussion or short oral presentation within the main Expressive 2017 conference. Accepted works will be archived through the ACM Digital Library.


General Submissions seeks for submissions for posters, demos and art exhibition in the three main tracks of Expressive Conference. We are interested in a wide variety of works that bridge arts and sciences. We are particularly interested in techniques for visually communicating ideas and information and for sketch based interaction and modeling integration through integration of computer science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, and the fine, applied & performing arts.

Expressive solicits extended abstracts for poster, demo and art exhibition proposals. Accepted works will be demonstrated and exhibited during the conference. We expect these works will pose new questions and motivate further research in three main areas of Expressive Conference: (1) Computational Aesthetics; (2) Sketch Based Interfaces and Modeling; and (3) Non-Photorealistic Animation and Rendering.


Expressive 2017 will be held in Los Angeles, co-located with SIGGRAPH 2017 at the LA Convention Center (1201 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, California 90015, USA). SIGGRAPH is the world’s largest, most influential annual conference and exhibition in computer graphics and interactive techniques.

Expressive General Submission Guidelines

We seek poster, demo and art exhibition submissions that show work that pertains to all three tracks of Expressive 2017. All submissions should be in the form of a two-page or longer abstract, written in English, and should follow the SIGGRAPH formatting instructions, including a title page with an abstract, keywords, and a bibliography. Submissions should provide a clear description of the work and the process. Posters, demos and artworks will be demonstrated and/or displayed at the conference venue. Authors of accepted works in all areas of submitted work are encouraged to bring a demonstration of their work as well; it is not necessary to create a separate submission for a poster and a demo if they refer to the same project.

Submission is electronic using the EasyChair system.

For detailed instructions to submit posters, papers, videos and other materials, please view the submission instructions.
