SIGGRAPH 2014 Offers Registration Discount to Unemployed
May 14, 2014 | News
The current economic situation has made it difficult for people in many professions to find jobs. The computer graphics community is no exception. While the annual SIGGRAPH conference is rife with opportunities for networking
and locating job openings in computer graphics
, unemployed job seekers are typically in financial flux
— and as a result, may have difficulty affording the cost of registration.
SIGGRAPH believes that in these times, it’s especially important that members of the SIGGRAPH community continue to come together to make connections, provide mutual inspiration, and continue to look forward and help create the future.
In recognition of the fact that unemployed members of the computer graphics community may not have the financial means to attend SIGGRAPH 2014 without help, SIGGRAPH has decided to extend the lowest possible registration rates (the same as Student Member rates) to unemployed attendees.
SIGGRAPH 2014 full conference registration rates are as follows*:
- $945: ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH Member
- $1,145: Non-Member
- $395: Student Member or unemployed Member of ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH
to register online with the unemployment discount.

To take advantage of this discount, you must be a member of ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH and agree to the terms listed on the SIGGRAPH 2014 website
