Learn About ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters at SIGGRAPH Asia

30 Oct 2014

Are you excited about SIGGRAPH Asia and computer graphics? Don't want to wait until the next conference to get your CG fix? Then consider joining your local ACM SIGGRAPH chapter!

The goal of ACM SIGGRAPH chapters is to organize events in local communities and bring SIGGRAPH-style content to people in cities across the globe who share an interest in CG. Each chapter encompasses an entire city (or university, for student chapters) and is run by volunteers. Volunteering in your local chapter is a rewarding way to meet other computer graphics enthusiasts in your community, stay informed about the latest developments in the field, and to keep the SIGGRAPH spirit alive from conference to conference.

No chapter in your city? Why not start your own? At SIGGRAPH Asia, the Professional and Student Chapters Committee (PSCC) will be available to help you get started. Just stop by the chapters booth and schedule a meeting. The PSCC will explain the chapter chartering process in detail, and provide ideas on how to build support within your community.

THE PSCC will also be hosting special sessions at SIGGRAPH Asia. If you plan to be in Shenzhen this December, don't miss this opportunity to connect with the PSCC!

Professional and Student Chapters Committee Sessions at SIGGRAPH Asia 2014:

  • Managing your SIGGRAPH Chapter (Thursday, 04 December 11:00 - 12:45 Chrysanthemum Hall, Level 5)
  • Getting to Know ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters (Friday, 05 December 09:00 - 10:45 Chrysanthemum Hall, Level 5)

ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters will be holding meetings with people interested in volunteering to serve on the Professional and Student Chapters Committee. We hope to identify potential candidates that will work with us to build a support network for ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters in Asia. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mashhuda Glencross at mglencross@siggraph.org.
