ACM SIGGRAPH invites applications for the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference Advisory Group Chair. The CAG Chair oversees the activities of the Conference Advisory Group, which provides multi-year policy and procedural oversight for all conference planning.
The Chair of the CAG is a volunteer who serves in two major capacities. First, the Chair leads the work of the CAG in carrying out multi-year functions. Second, the Chair serves as a non-voting member of the ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee (EC) and is the primary communications link between the conference and the EC.
Are you taking advantage of all the content provided to ACM SIGGRAPH members? One of the most valuable member benefits you have is access to a plethora of great content, such as:
YouTube: SIGGRAPH Asia featured speaker Karlheinz Brandenburg.
Digital Library: All ACM SIGGRAPH members have access to the SIGGRAPH portion of the content in the ACM Digital Library (including the proceedings of the SIGGRAPH annual conferences). All SIGGRAPH material is available in PDF form.
