Appy Hour

Submission Deadline

Wednesday, 24 June 2015

22:00 UTC/GMT

Have you been slaving over a keyboard creating your app masterpiece? Are you a one-person team of superheroes storyboarding, coding, sampling music, wrangling imagery? Sounds like you could use a drink … and a place to show your hard work!  

Do just that at SIGGRAPH 2015’s Appy Hour! Appy Hour is a cocktail reception where independent app developers can show their apps to the SIGGRAPH 2015 attendees. Get feedback, cultivate new ideas, and make contacts to help move your efforts along. Whether your app uses augmented reality, computational photography, image manipulation, location-based gaming, or anything you can make your mobile device do, come show it to our audience.

We’ll provide you:

  • A spot to set up shop with your devices 
  • A sign with your name, logo, and app screen-shot
  • That drink we mentioned

Submit your app to Appy Hour today!

Submitters must complete the ACM rights-management process when they submit their work to SIGGRAPH 2015. In previous years, the rights-management form was not required until after submissions were accepted, which often delayed effective promotion of conference programs and events. The new rights-management process will eliminate that delay and enhance conference marketing efforts.

Submissions are due by 22:00 UTC/GMT, 24 June 2015.

Log in to the SIGGRAPH Information System, select "Begin a New Submission," and then select "create" for the Appy Hour submission form. You will be asked to complete or provide:

  • The submitter's name
  • Contact information, affiliation, title of work
  • Names of your co-developers
  • List of credits
  • Hardware required to run your project if it is selected
  • A list of all licensed components and/or middleware
  • A single-sentence summary that introduces the achievements of your work (50 words or fewer)
  • A one-paragraph overview that highlights the innovations and significant accomplishments, commentary, or contributions to the SIGGRAPH community (250 words or fewer).
  • One "representative image" of the opening screen shot of your app suitable for use on the conference web site and promotional materials (at least 500x500 pixels, but no larger than 3 MB). See Representative Image Guidelines.

Educator’s Resources Submission option. Those submitting content to a SIGGRAPH conference have the option of donating materials of educational value to ACM SIGGRAPH online resources for the benefit of the education community. Learn more

At SIGGRAPH 2015, the chosen entries will show their work during Appy Hour, where attendees will have the opportunity to see your work displayed, and you will have the opportunity to network with other app developers, gaming companies, etc.

If you wish to attend SIGGRAPH 2015, registration and travel costs are at your own expense, except for the contributor of record, who will receive recognition in the form of a 25% discount on the cost of registration for SIGGRAPH 2015.
