It's becoming evident that Tehran, Iran, has a vibrant computer graphics community. The Tehran ACM SIGGRAPH Professional Chapter, founded in the spring of 2014, is already hosting events that draw crowds of attendees.

This month, Tehran ACM SIGGRAPH put on an event called "Post SIGGRAPH 2014," which was attended by more than 100 local CG enthusiasts. The organizers presented the audience with an overview of the SIGGRAPH 2014 conference, along with a rundown of the latest highlights in computer graphics research. Former ACM SIGGRAPH Vice President Paul Debevec sent the chapter a special video to play, giving attendees a sneak peek of the very latest technology being integrated into USC ICT's Light Stage, a cutting-edge system used to photorealistically light computer-generated characters, the likes of which can be found in blockbusters such as "Spider-Man 2," "King Kong," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Avatar."

According to Tehran chapter leadership, the chapter's mission is to spread awareness of the field and bring local CG enthusiasts together to benefit from each other's knowledge and experience. Moving forward, Tehran ACM SIGGRAPH plans to host regular talks, workshops and seminars with experts and scholars who specialize in the science, art and technology of computer graphics.
