Spotlight on the International Resources Committee

IRC members speak multiple languages and live in different countries, making the committee one of the most global in ACM SIGGRAPH. Their diverse backgrounds allow them to bridge cultural and language gaps to connect computer graphics enthusiasts all over the world. The IRC is especially active on social media, working to highlight various ACM SIGGRAPH and CG happenings across the globe. The IRC's latest social media venture is the IRC Wechat channel (enter the channel by scanning the QR code below), which posts everything related to SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH Asia and computer graphics in Mandarin.
