It is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to contribute to OpenGL Insights, a book containing original articles on OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and WebGL techniques by the OpenGL community and for the OpenGL community: from game programmers to web developers to researchers. OpenGL Insights will be published by A K Peters, Ltd. / CRC Press in time for SIGGRAPH 2012.
Given the wide array of OpenGL platforms, from Mac desktops to Android phones to web browsers, we invite you to submit article proposals on all aspects of OpenGL development, including performance tuning, recent GL features/extensions, application architecture, vendor-specific techniques, WebGL, and interoperability with other APIs. We are interested in proposals based on your unique real-world experience using OpenGL. Some ideas include:
These are, of course, examples. Please don't feel limited to these areas.
The planned schedule is:
August 15, 2011 - Proposals dueSeptember 1, 2011 - Authors selectedNovember 1, 2011 - Articles dueDecember 1, 2011 - Peer review feedback dueDecember 15, 2011 - Revised articles due, all articles sent to publisherJanuary 1, 2012 - Supplemental material due, e.g., videos, source code, etc.SIGGRAPH 2012 - Book released
Please send proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org using this example proposal as a template by August 15th.
Proposals should include the title, your name and affiliation, a one-page abstract, and anything else you feel helps convey your article such as related images or references. Proposals must demonstrate the author's real-world OpenGL experience and ability to write clearly. Proposals can have multiple authors, and a single author can submit multiple proposals. There is no required article length, but we expect most articles will be 5-20 pages. Example code can be written in any language on any platform.
Please feel free to contact us for additional discussion. We're looking forward to putting together a valuable book for the OpenGL community.
Thanks,Patrick Cozzi and Christophe Riccio, Editorshttp://www.openglinsights.com
