The Eurographics/SIGGRAPH Hardware Workshop is an established international forum for exchanging experience and knowledge related to computer graphics hardware. The workshop provides a setting for discussions and constructive critique of new ideas and novel approaches to problems in graphics hardware. The workshop is attended by leading researchers and practitioners in the field. Following last year's format, the workshop will be in cooperation with Eurographics and ACM SIGGRAPH.

Best Paper Award: An award of $500 will be given to the authors of the paper considered to be the outstanding paper presented at the workshop. The award is based on the accuracy, originality, and importance of the technical concept, the quality and readability of the manuscript, as well as the content and delivery of the verbal presentation. To qualify for this award, one or more of the principal authors must be enrolled at the workshop and actually present the paper. The winner will be chosen by the organization committee based on audience feedback and will be announced at the end of the workshop.

Demonstrations: The workshop on graphics hardware is a unique opportunity to present prototypes and products to computer graphics experts. We invite demonstrations of graphics hardware, software, and integrated systems. Demonstrations will be held on Monday and Tuesday during the workshop. We highly encourage paper authors to demonstrate their systems at the workshop.
