    *Symposium on Applied Perception 2nd Call for Papers and Posters*

*

The ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (ACM SAP 
<http://sap.acm.org/2018/>) aims to advance and promote research that 
crosses the boundaries between perception and disciplines such as 
graphics, visualization, computer vision, haptics, acoustics, and 
augmented, mixed, and virtual reality. These fields can benefit from the 
exchange of ideas. The scope of the conference includes applications and 
algorithms in any area of research that incorporates elements of 
perception and computer science.

Our fifteenth annual event provides an intimate, immersive forum for 
exchanging ideas about areas of overlapping interests. The ACM SAP 2018 
conference will be held in downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada on the 10th 
and 11th of August, 2018. We aim to further promote communication 
between the core perception and computer graphics communities.

We invite submissions of original work in all areas of applied 
perception. Relevant areas include:

  *

    Modeling, rendering, and animation

  *

    Visualization

  *

    Computational aesthetics

  *

    Haptic rendering, haptic input and perception

  *

    Perception of virtual characters

  *

    Color vision and color appearance modeling

  *

    Perception of high dynamic range scenes and images

  *

    Interaction techniques and interfaces

  *

    Augmented, mixed, and virtual reality

    Papers

Research can be submitted as a long paper (up to 8 pages and up to 20 
minute talk), a short paper (up to 4 pages and up to 15 minute talk), or 
as a poster presentation (1 page abstract). All submissions should 
follow the general SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines 
<http://www.siggraph.org/learn/instructions-authors>. Diagrams and 
images should be represented in color where appropriate. Papers that are 
not accepted will be considered for the poster session. Authors of 
posters accepted by this route will, of course, have the option to 
decline the opportunity to present a poster.


    Posters

The posters program at SAP provides an informal venue for authors to 
share their research achievements and further discuss them with others. 
In that spirit, we encourage all types of scholarly submissions that fit 
the scope of ACM-SAP. In particular, we explicitly welcome poster 
submissions on work-in-progress and on work that may have been 
previously published elsewhere but for which additional dissemination 
and discussion is desired. The poster session is an integral part of SAP 
and the SAP program will include a dedicated time slot for poster 
viewing and discussion. All poster presenters will also have the 
opportunity to give a one-minute presentation on their work during a 
poster fast-forward session.

NOTE: SAP poster abstracts are NOT considered to be publications, and as 
such will NOT appear in the ACM Digital Library. Poster abstracts WILL 
be included in the conference USB drive. Poster abstracts should follow 
the general SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines 
<http://www.siggraph.org/learn/instructions-authors>, except that they 
should be 1 page long.


    Further details

All papers will be carefully reviewed by our International Program 
Committee. SAP follows a double blind review process. Papers will be 
evaluated as submitted, given limited time between submission and 
printing of final versions. Under a recent agreement with the ACM 
Transactions on Applied Perception <https://tap.acm.org/>(TAP) and the 
ACM Publications Board, the strongest accepted papers will be offered 
publication as full papers in the ACM journal TAP. Authors of such 
special issue papers must agree to present the paper at ACM SAP. As has 
always been the case, authors of regular ACM SAP papers can still submit 
to TAP regular issues with appropriate additions. Papers that have been 
recommended for acceptance in the ACM TAP journal will undergo a second 
review cycle, during which the authors will revise the paper to address 
reviewer concerns (similar to conditional acceptances at ACM SIGGRAPH). 
Please note that TAP referrals are conditional. The TAP reviewers may 
recommend bringing the paper back to the SAP proceedings if the quality 
of the revision is inadequate. Therefore, it is very important to 
incorporate as many reviewer comments as possible into the revision.


The revised paper has to be submitted in TAP format to Manuscript 
Central <https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/acm>and must include a cover 
letter stating that the submission is for the SAP special issue. The 
cover letter should also document the list of changes made to the paper 
to address the reviewer concerns. Reformatting an 8-page paper from the 
SAP format to the TAP format typically adds a few pages so we expect the 
final papers will have somewhere between 10-15 pages. TAP papers must 
not exceed 20 pages in length. Complete TAP author guidelines and 
templates are available at http://tap.acm.org/authors.cfm.
