[Equipment Insurance]

SIGGRAPH 2003 is no longer accepting insurance-application forms.

If you completed and submitted the insurance form, SIGGRAPH 2003 will insure the equipment listed on the form from the time it enters the San Diego Convention Center to the time it leaves the convention center, as long as receipt and outbound shipping occur while the convention center is occupied by SIGGRAPH 2003. SIGGRAPH 2003 does not insure equipment in transit to or from the conference. Please be sure to insure your equipment during shipment.

If you have not completed and submitted the insurance form, your equipment will not be insured by SIGGRAPH 2003.

Unfortunately, every conference experiences some theft. While SIGGRAPH 2003 does provide security at the convention center, you should exercise standard precautions in securing equipment (especially small, mobile items) when it is in the convention center.

Filing a Claim
If your equipment is insured by SIGGRAPH 2003, please follow this procedure to file a claim for damage or theft:

  • 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 convention center.

  • 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, which will review and record your claim. It will then be sent to the insurance representative at ACM for processing.
