The Significant New Researcher
The Significant New Researcher Award is awarded annually
to a researcher who has made a recent significant contribution
to the field of computer graphics and is new to the field.
The intent is to recognize people who, though early in
their careers, have already made a notable contribution.
The Significant New Researcher Award was presented for
the first time at SIGGRAPH 2001, to Paul Debevec.
The scope of the areas of accomplishment for award recipients
encompasses both theory and application including, but
not limited to, works of art, development of algorithms,
hardware design, and innovative application of computer
graphics. These awards, however, are not intended solely to
recognize service to SIGGRAPH.

ACM SIGGRAPH Outstanding Service
This award, presented for the first time at SIGGRAPH 98,
is given on even-numbered years to recognize outstanding
service to ACM SIGGRAPH by a volunteer. It recognizes
persons who have given extraordinary service to ACM SIGGRAPH,
both in the trenches and in positions of more responsibility
or visibility, over a significant period of time.
The ACM SIGGRAPH Outstanding Service Award has been presented
to Maxine Brown, Thomas DeFanti, and Copper Frances Giloth.
Nominees for this award should be willing to work behind
the scenes, push new ideas until they become a reality,
help other volunteers, and devote a large part of their
lives to serving ACM SIGGRAPH and its community.
Please send Outstanding Service Award nominations to: firstname.lastname@example.org
