Seeking Input on Our Future Direction

The ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee seeks input from the computer graphics and interactive techniques community on the future of the SIGGRAPH conference and the ACM SIGGRAPH organization. The committee is interested in hearing from professionals who may feel the organization and conference could be more relevant to their needs.

Through responses, the survey will also help the committee expand the direction of ACM SIGGRAPH into emerging areas of computer graphics. All respondents will be entered into a drawing for one of several complimentary and discounted conference registrations to SIGGRAPH 2017, July 30-August 3 in Los Angeles.Take the online survey now.
