Call for Papers

Co-Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics

July 30/31, 2005
Los Angeles, CA, USA

Graphics Hardware is a highly visible, established international forum for exchanging experience and knowledge related to computer graphics hardware. The event, held annually since 1986, offers a unique perspective on graphics hardware by combining discussions and constructive critique of innovative concepts as well as product-level designs. It is an inclusive forum for the entire graphics hardware community and brings together researchers, engineers, and architects.

The program features two days of paper and industry presentations, with ample time for discussion during breaks, lunches, and the workshop banquet. This year's event will be held in Los Angeles, CA, USA, jointly with ACM SIGGRAPH.

Please visit our website at for more information. Homepages for previous years of Graphics Hardware are linked below.

Papers Track

We invite high-quality, original papers on all aspects of computer graphics hardware describing either proven and tested solutions or novel ideas and concepts.

Note: Papers describing "ports" of algorithms to run on a programmable graphics processor will only be considered if they employ a significantly new and non-obvious technique to make the best use of a graphics processor's architecture.

Submission info

Authors are invited to upload papers electronically in Adobe PDF format by visiting Please limit the length to 8 typeset pages in final Eurographics format (preferred) or 16 double-spaced pages.

If you would like to send video sequences in QuickTime, MPEG or AVI format, they can be submitted using the electronic submission system.

For further questions please contact

Hot 3D Systems Track

We invite vendors in the 3D industry to present their latest and greatest 3D chips or system designs. Presentations should be technical, rather than marketing, and should focus on real products (20 minutes). The deadline for Hot3D presentations is approximately six weeks before the workshop, allowing submission of late-breaking work.

Submission info

Contributors are invited to send abstracts for their Hot 3D Systems presentation to Final versions of the presentations are to be sent electronically, in Microsoft PowerPoint format, as an email attachment to the same address.

Bound copies of the slides will be distributed to attendees, and presentation slides will be made available on the workshop web page after the workshop.

Graphics Hardware 2005 will take place in Los Angeles, CA, USA on Saturday and Sunday July 30/31, 2005. This event will overlap with the ACM SIGGRAPH conference/courses on Sunday.

Please see our web page for details on registration, accommodation, and travel, as they become available. We will continue our tradition of a sumptuous banquet at a unique location.


The registration fee will include the workshop proceedings, banquet, coffee, and lunches. The workshop fee does not cover accommodations. Please see our website for full details on registration and accommodations.

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 event. 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 present the paper. The winner will be chosen by the organizing committee based on audience feedback and will be announced at the end of the workshop.


Presenters and participants are invited to bring prototypes or products for demonstration at the event. Demonstrations will be held during breaks and before and after the sessions. We highly encourage paper authors and industry presenters to demonstrate their systems. Please contact the organizing committee by email at to arrange for space or electrical connections that may be required for your demonstration.
