SIGGRAPH


SIGGRAPH

SIGGRAPH (short for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques) is the name of the annual conference on computer graphics (CG) convened by the ACM SIGGRAPH organization. The first SIGGRAPH conference was in 1974. The conference is attended by tens of thousands of computer professionals. Past SIGGRAPH conferences have been held in Dallas, Seattle, Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Diego and elsewhere across the United States.

Overview

Some highlights of the conference are its Animation Theater and Electronic Theater presentations, where recently created CG films are played. There is a large exhibition floor, where several hundred companies set up elaborate booths and compete for attention and recruits. Most of the companies are in the engineering, graphics, motion picture, or video game industries. There are also many booths for schools which specialize in computer graphics or interactivity.

Dozens of research papers are presented each year, and SIGGRAPH is widely considered the most prestigious forum for the publication of computer graphics research. The recent paper acceptance rate for SIGGRAPH has been less than 20%. [ACM SIGGRAPH " [http://www.siggraph.org/publications/acceptance_data Annual Conference Papers Acceptance Statistics] "] The papers accepted for presentation at SIGGRAPH are currently printed in a special issue of the "ACM Transactions on Graphics" journal. Prior to 2002, SIGGRAPH papers were printed in the "SIGGRAPH Conference Proceedings" series of publications.

In addition to the papers, there are numerous panels of industry experts set up to discuss a wide variety of topics, from computer graphics to machine interactivity to education. SIGGRAPH also offers many full- and half-day courses in state-of-the-art computer graphics topics, as well as shorter "sketch" presentations where artists and researchers discuss their latest work.

IGGRAPH Asia

As of 2008, SIGGRAPH conferences will also be held in Asia (known as [http://www.siggraph.org/asia2008/ SIGGRAPH Asia] ), in addition to the conferences in the United States. The first SIGGRAPH Asia conference is to be held in Singapore from the tenth to the thirteenth of December 2008 at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
