Call for Papers

ACM SAP 2020: ACM Symposium on Applied Perception
July 17th – 18th
Washington DC
Co-located with SIGGRAPH)

Abstracts due: March 24th
Papers due: March 31st

The ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (ACM SAP) 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 seventeenth annual event provides an intimate, immersive forum for exchanging ideas about areas of overlapping interests. The ACM SAP 2020 conference will be held in Washington DC on the 17th and 18th of July, 2020 (co-located with SIGGRAPH). 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
  • Virtual worlds
  • Display technologies
  • Auditory display and interfaces
  • Perceptual auditory coding
  • Spatialized sound
  • Speech synthesis and recognition
  • Sensory integration
  • Multimodal rendering
  • Spatial and temporal vision
  • Attention and eye movements
  • Statistical learning and perception of natural scenes
  • Perception of shapes, surfaces, and materials
  • Biosensing including EEG


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. Page limits include all references. 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.
