The Faculty Submitted Student Work, or FSSW, is an online archive of assignment and project briefs as well as an exhibition of the student work created for those projects. Sponsored by the ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee and designed as a way for educators to share their project ideas across schools and disciplines, this annual exhibition of work during the SIGGRAPH conference also offers a venue for participants to see the student work. As details about the new virtual SIGGRAPH 2020 conference become available, the committee will share updates about how FSSW will work this year.
Last year was my first year as curator of the FSSW exhibition, and it was very inspiring to see all the work coming from different faculty around the world. As we approach the ninth year of FSSW in its current format — and the number of schools and assignments submitted keeps growing — the committee has made some adjustments to the length of what will be shown in order to emphasize a variety of projects, schools represented, and to ensure FSSW is a reasonable length for participants to watch in its entirety. Of course, all assignments that are submitted will still be shared online in the archive, and links to see the full versions of the student work submitted will be available. To see assignments and student work from last year’s FSSW, click here.
Interested in submitting to this year’s FSSW? There is still plenty time for you or faculty members you know to submit! The deadline is Friday, 5 June. Any content related to computer graphics and interactive techniques is welcome, and submissions are open to all faculty working at Secondary/High School through University levels. Submission information can be found at here.
Questions? Send me an email. I look forward to seeing all the assignments and student work this year!
