Join our Online Town Hall Meeting

DATE: November 15th, 2022
TIME: 5pm EST / 10pm CET / 7am(Nov16) JST

The Design Task Force at ACM SIGGRAPH invites you to a virtual town hall meeting to discuss the role of design disciplines in shaping the future of graphic and interactive technologies. 

Join this online event to share your ideas and meet the committee and other practitioners and researchers from a broad range of design disciplines.

We will begin the town hall with an overview of the newly established design initiative and its goals and then delve into discussing, exploring, and envisioning opportunities to foster a community at ACM SIGGRAPH for emerging and future types of design research and practice.

Design with technology results in innovative artifacts such as smart product design (i.e. Internet of Things), wearable product design (i.e. smart glasses), fashion design (i.e. smart clothes and shoes), and architectural design and engineering (i.e. responsive buildings and structures). Recent development of machine intelligence suggests challenges and opportunities for redefining the role of designers.

New types of designers are searching for a community to join, in order to learn, share, and present innovative design results, both academically and commercially.

We invite you to join the session, share your ideas with the committee, and be a part of the future of design at ACM SIGGRAPH.

The mandate of Design Task Force is to explore opportunities for ACM SIGGRAPH to build a community for new types of designers.
