Video Exhibition Submission Guidelines
Channel SIGCSE is the Video Exhibition at the SIGCSE Symposium. Videos submitted by you, and your SIGCSE colleagues are peer-reviewed to be accepted for exhibition. The Video Exhibition appeared at SIGCSE for the first time in 2009 at Chattanooga.
You, your students, and your animations in the videos you submitted to the Channel SIGCSE video exhibition. Here's your chance to share the dynamic material you haven't had a good way to share - until now.
On Channel SIGCSE, of course! Channel SIGCSE will be presented on video kiosks at the symposium during SIGCSE 2010. Channel SIGCSE also has a home on the web throughout the year
We invite videos relevant to computer science education. These videos could include classroom lectures, demonstrations, or animations. The videos could be useful in today's classroom or be of historical significance. For SIGCSE 2010 we prefer videos that highlight the conference theme. To that end, we are interested in videos that demonstrate real or dramatized challenging pedagogical situations or computing education research challenges. These videos should be capable of sparking discussion rather than demonstrating a proposed solution.
To be accepted, a video must be:
- relevant to computer science educators
- of reasonable quality (1) and running time
- submitted with a permission form from the copyright owner (see
permission form below)
To be accepted, a video should:
- Reasonable quality: There are many aspects of reasonable
quality, both technical and artistic. We won't attempt to list
detailed quality criteria here; however, the panel will know
reasonable quality when they see it. We're not SIGGRAPH and this isn't
Sundance, so flaws are accepted (if not expected). Things to avoid:
periods of non-content, images/scenes with more extraneous items in
view than the focus of the action/story, lengthy credits. You can look
year's program to see examples of acceptable quality.
- Reasonable runtime: While the running time of a video will be a
factor in the selection process, there is no hard limit for the
running time of a video submission. However, you may note that last
year's program included videos as long as about 20 minutes
(probably the upper limit) and many that were considerably shorter. As
with any video production, you should strive for maximum impact in the
least amount of time.
- Create a video of interest to the SIGCSE community.
- Create and post a web-version of the video. Post the web-version of your video to YouTube.com. The review panel will view your YouTube video. If the video is accepted for publication a high-quality version will be required.
- Select, or create, a representative image. The representative images will be used in promotion and, possibly, on the DVD of exhibition videos. The representative image is typically a frame of the video. It could be the title image, or a particularly memorable image from the video. The representative image must be included in the submission form, so you need the image before completing the submission form.
- Complete a video proposal submission form. The submitter will complete the submission form (Word, Text or RTF) and email the completed form to .
Deadlines: dates are posted at the top of the page.
All submitted videos will be panel-reviewed. For the videos selected for exhibition, the submitters are required to:
- Download and complete the permission form (Word or PDF). We need a signature, so mail (snail-mail) the completed and signed form to:
SIUE Computer Science
Edwardsville, IL 62026 USA
- Send us the high-quality version of the video. Snail-mail a (NTSC) DVD disk or mini-DV tape, or send a link to a file (of just about any format); in general, whatever works for you will work for us.
Deadlines: High-quality video must be submitted by the date listed above. All permission forms must be postmarked by the high-quality submission date. SIGCSE is not responsible for permission forms lost in the mail.
No, you must be the rights-owner of the submission to complete the permission form and therefore submit a video to the exhibition. But, you can encourage the rights owner to make the submission.
