Insurance Guidelines

SIGGRAPH 2001 will insure all equipment brought into the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) for use during the conference if we receive complete prior notification of your equipment according to the following guidelines.

Note: Unfortunately, every conference experiences some theft. While SIGGRAPH does provide security at the Center, you should exercise standard precautions in securing equipment (especially small, mobile items) at all times while at the convention center.

Equipment that should be insured includes the following:

  • Any equipment shipped or brought by you to the LACC for use in your presentation or installation onsite.
  • Any equipment that you have arranged to be donated for use in your presentation or installation.

SIGGRAPH 2001 will insure the equipment from the time it is accepted by Freeman Decorating and/or enters the LACC to the time it leaves the LACC as long as receipt and outbound shipping occurs while the LACC is occupied by SIGGRAPH 2001. SIGGRAPH 2001 does not insure equipment in transit to or from the conference, please be sure to insure your equipment during this time.

In order for SIGGRAPH 2001 to insure your equipment, you must complete an insurance form for each unique piece of equipment. For example, if you have two computers that are exactly alike, you need fill out only one form and indicate "2" under number of items and the total value for items under replacement value. But if you have two slightly different computers, you would need to fill out one form for each item.

Please click on the Program you are participating in from the list on the right. Please complete the form that follows. You will be asked for the following information:

  • Program Area
  • Contributor contact information
  • Name of presentation or installation
  • Description of equipment
  • Number of items
  • Model and model # (Note: You do not need to provide serial numbers.)
  • Replacement value
  • Signatures

Certificates of Insurance
If you require a certificate of insurance, please indicate this request on the form.

Filing a Claim
In the event it becomes necessary to file a claim for equipment damaged or missing from SIGGRAPH 2001, you MUST:

  • Notify your Program Chair and the Exhibition Management office (Hall-Erickson, Inc.) immediately. Hall-Erickson will contact building security.
  • Work with your Program Chair and the Exhibition Management office (Hall-Erickson, Inc.) to obtain a police report while at the LACC.
  • Forward the following documentation to your Program Chair:
    1. Copy of the police report
    2. Copy of the original purchase receipt
    3. Copy of a replacement quote from a vendor or manufacturer

The Program Chair will forward this claim documentation to Conference Administration who will review and record your claim. It will then be sent to the insurance representative at ACM for processing.
