Forms Required to Co-Locate with SIGGRAPH

How to Co-Locate with SIGGRAPH 2016

Are you interested in co-locating a symposium or conference in Anaheim with SIGGRAPH 2016?

First, work with the ACM SIGGRAPH Small Conference Committee Chair to get approval for Co-Locating with SIGGRAPH 2016. This will require filing both a PAF (Preliminary Approval Form) and a TMRF (Technical Meeting Request Form) to get a budget approved; see pricing information below, which should be included in the budget prepared for your TMRF.

Once your symposium or conference is approved by the ACM SIGGRAPH Small Conference Committee, it will be forwarded to the Conference Advisory Group for its approval.

Please note that co-location space is not available in the Anaheim Convention Center for SIGGRAPH 2016.

If you would like to host your event in an official SIGGRAPH 2016 hotel, the following procedures apply:

1. SIGGRAPH 2016 has control of all meeting space in participating hotels starting on Sunday, 24 July. Complete the Space Request Form for the hotel of your choice. SIGGRAPH 2016 will work with the hotel to release the space needed at the preferred hotel to the co-located group main contact.
