Equipment Insurance

It is unfortunate that every conference experiences some theft in spite of maximum precautions. While SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 does provide security at the convention center, you should exercise standard precautions in securing equipment (especially small, mobile items) when it is in the convention center. As a service to our contributors, SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 insures equipment from the time it enters the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre to the time it leaves the convention center.

This is provided if:

  • Receipt and outbound shipping occur while the convention center is occupied by SIGGRAPH Asia 2011, and
  • An Equipment Insurance Form was completed and submitted on or before 21 November 2011. If you have not completed and submitted the insurance form by Monday, 21 November 2011, 23:59 GMT, your equipment will not be insured by SIGGRAPH Asia 2011.

Instructions on how to complete the Equipment Insurance Form in the SIGGRAPH Asia Online Information System is provided after you have been notified that your work has been accepted for presentation at the conference.

Please note:
SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 does not insure personal items, such as cell phones, digital cameras, laptops, camcorders, etc.

SIGGRAPH Asia 2011 does not insure equipment in transit to or from the conference. Please be sure to insure your equipment during shipment.
