ACM SIGGRAPH News
From the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques.
The ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee (EC) is forming the ACM SIGGRAPH Advisory Board (ASAB). The purpose of the ASAB is to advise the EC on issues and to act as a resource to help us increase our communication with our members and community. We want a representative group that reflects our membership both in technical and creative aspects and geographical distribution. The ASAB will have no meetings and will be an electronic discussion group, primarily email. It will be a small group of about 15 people. If you are interested in being considered a candidate for the ASAB or want to recommend another candidate please contact me at owen (at) siggraph.org. Scott Owen
The Computer Animation Festival trailer is now available on the SIGGRAPH 2005 website.
The deadline for papers submission is July 15 for VAST2005 which is the 6th International Symposium on Virtual Reality, Archaeology and Cultural Heritage and incorporates the Third Eurographics Symposium on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (EGSGH 2005). VAST 2005 is in-cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH.
On behalf of the ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee and Systems Managers, we would like to welcome you to our new web site. Currently it is a mixture of new and legacy content. We will be continually adding new content and moving legacy content into the new format. If you find any errors please contact the Webmaster.
The ACM SIGGRAPH 2005 election results are in. G. Scott Owen was elected President, and Alyn Rockwood was elected Vice President. New offices begin on July 1, 2005. We appreciate the commitment to ACM SIGGRAPH that all the candidates made in accepting the nominations and regret that the candidates who were not elected will not serve on the Executive Committee at this time. We are sure that such outstanding volunteers will have many other opportunities to serve within ACM SIGGRAPH, and we look forward to continuing to work with all the candidates in some way.
Congratulations to long-time ACM SIGGRAPH member and prominent volunteer Ed Catmull. Presented by the International Animated Film Society in honor of the man who defined a generation of moviegoers and animation fans, the Ub Iwerks Award was created and given to individuals or companies for technical advancements that make a significant impact on the art or industry of animation.
