Interactive Multimedia

The program this year consists of workshop-style video sessions for interactive media. We solicit video contributions (5-8 min.) describing novel interactive work, tools, applications and technical approaches that employ a variety of media types and are outstanding by their innovative interaction concepts and techniques; particularly works and applications exploiting multi-modal and non-standard interfaces. Video submissions should also cover a description of the techniques applied and will be reviewed. Accepted videos are presented in special sessions, which include the screening of the submitted video and questions from the audience to the authors. In addition, accepted videos are also featured on the Showcase DVD and the Showcase website respectively. The Showcase DVD will be handed out to attendees of the Eurographics 2006 conference, the showcase website will go online after the conference concludes.

Submission Guide

The submission process consists of two steps: the first step is to complete the online submission form, the second step is to create your submission package and send it to the organizers per mail.

Procedure

Please use the Online Submission Form to provide all required information about yourself and the work you are submitting. After completing the online form, create your submission package. The submission package contains a printed copy of the receipt from the online form and a data DVD or data CD with the following files (see technical requirements below for filename conventions):

  1. Low-resolution version of your video submission (should not exceed 100 MB)
  2. Normal- or high-resolution version of your video submission (should not exceed 4 GB)
  3. Three stills (TIFF, 300 dpi) taken from or representative of the work
  4. Digital copy of the receipt from the online submission form (screenshot, PDF or HTML page)

If you are submitting to Animations, please include two copies of the disc in your submission package. If you are submitting to Interactive Multimedia, please include four copies of the disc. Again, make sure to include a printed copy of the receipt from the online form in the package.

To make the submission process more uniform, we only accept contributions on data CD or data DVD. Videos may be submitted in any file format that can be played back with a standard installation of QuickTime 7 (see technical requirements below for details).

Once your submission package is assembled, please mail it to:

Technical Requirements

Accepted Media and File Formats

To make the submission process more uniform, we only accept contributions on data CD or data DVD. Videos may be submitted in any file format that can be played back with a standard installation of QuickTime 7. QuickTime supports a number of industry standard media and file formats, so you do not necessarily need QuickTime to produce or encode the files you are submitting. However, please test and make sure that your files play back on a standard installation (=no additional plugins or extensions required) of QuickTime 7 under Windows or Mac OS.

The QuickTime 7 player software is available as a free download from the QuickTime website which also carries a list of all audio and video formats supported by QuickTime 7:
