New this year, SIGGRAPH will collaborate with Leonardo, (The Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology) to publish a special issue specifically highlighting SIGGRAPH 2009 Art Papers. Publication of this special issue will coincide with SIGGRAPH 2009, and will also include visual documentation of works exhibited in BioLogic Art.
"SIGGRAPH concerns itself with the innovation and education crossroads of art, science, and technology," stated Jacquelyn Martino, SIGGRAPH 2009 Art Papers Chair from IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. "So, naturally we are thrilled to collaborate with Leonardo in the publication of this year's Art Papers. We hope to further emphasize the process and research behind the creation of art in today's digital world as well as its greater impact on our society and culture."
Art Papers at SIGGRAPH 2009 will be presented in 20-minute sessions by their authors, with the opportunity for participants to pose questions following the presentations. A full schedule of accepted Art Papers will be available online in May 2009.
