SIGGRAPH Executive Committee

In the span of 30 years, ACM SIGGRAPH has grown from a handful of computer graphics enthusiasts to a diverse group of researchers, artists, developers, filmmakers, scientists, and other professionals who share an interest in computer graphics and interactive techniques.
Our community values excellence, passion, integrity, volunteerism, and cross-disciplinary interaction. We sponsor not only the annual SIGGRAPH conference, but also focused small conferences, professional chapters throughout the world, educational resources and grants, the awards program, public policy program, the special projects grants program, the traveling art show, and SIGGRAPH Video Reviews.

Hall E Lobby
Come by the ACM SIGGRAPH Booth for more information about the organization, membership, the education program, or the professional and student chapters. We'll be there to answer your questions and provide information.

The SIGGRAPH community depends on your support! Please help by joining ACM SIGGRAPH for $27 per year. In recognition of their support, members receive the Computer Graphics quarterly, access to the archive of SIGGRAPH proceedings in the ACM Digital Library, and discounted registrations for the annual conference and other ACM SIGGRAPH-sponsored programs. For more details on membership or to join online, go to ACM SIGGRAPH and select Membership.

Professional & Student Chapters
Hall E Lobby
The Professional Chapters of ACM SIGGRAPH exist in 40 cities in 15 countries around the world. They form an international multicultural network of the people who develop, share, continue, and extend the work and achievements presented at the annual conference. Chapter members include people involved in research, development, education, art, gaming, visualization, and entertainment, just to name a few. Student chapters have been chartered in 10 schools. These groups host activities on their campuses that highlight computer graphics and interactive techniques. For more information about the ACM SIGGRAPH network of chapters, or if you would like to start a Professional or Student Chapter, come by the ACM SIGGRAPH booth or go to:
