Submission Instructions

Papers should be submitted electronically using the online submission system:

The review process will be double-blind, which means that paper submissions must be anonymous and include the unique paper ID that will be assigned upon creating a submission using the online system. Papers should not have previously appeared in, or be currently submitted to, any other conference or journal. All papers will be reviewed carefully by the International Program Committee members.

Research can be submitted as a long paper (7-10 pages and a 20 minute talk),
a short paper (4-6 pages and a 15 minute talk), or as a poster presentation
(1 page abstract and presentation of poster at conference). Long papers should include a significant contribution to the state of the art. Short papers should include an augmentation or new application of existing work. Short papers can also contain the mature seeds of new research. Two types of work can be submitted directly for poster presentation:

(i) Work that has been published elsewhere but is of particular relevance
to the MIG community can be submitted as a poster. This work and the venue in which it as published should be identified in the abstract.

(ii) Work that is of interest to the MIG community but is not
yet mature enough to appear as a short or long paper.
Posters will not appear in the official MIG proceedings or in the ACM Digital library but will appear in an online database for distribution at author’s discretion. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference during oral sessions, or as posters during a poster session. Posters will be reviewed single-blind, so author information may be included. Posters authors will have an opportunity to showcase their work orally through a 1 minute poster fast-forward session, in addition to poster display and session.

Supplementary Material

Due to the nature of the conference, we strongly encourage authors to submit supplementary videos. Videos may be submitted electronically and will be made available to reviewers. Size up to 50MB. For videos, we advise QuickTime MPEG-4 or DivX Version 6, and for still images, we advise JPG or PNG. If you use another format, you are not guaranteed that reviewers will view them.


The Best Paper, Best Student Paper, Best Poster and Best Presentation awards will be conferred during the conference. As in previous years, the 5 best papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds (CAVW) published by Wiley.

ACM Formatting

MIG papers should be formatted using the ACM SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines. Sample latex template here.
