SIGGRAPH Publications Overview
Audience: Conference Attendee (any registration)
 
Background
When you attend a SIGGRAPH conference, you gain access to a vast array of publications that help you contribute, attend, and reference great work from the past year.
 
SIGGRAPH conference publications are highly prized references. Don't wait to pick them up because some of them are only available for a limited time.
