Since its refounding last summer, the London Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH has hit the ground running, hosting at least one computer graphics event every month. The events have been well attended, and open to anyone and everyone in the London computer graphics community. With a mission to promote, inform and connect the London CG community, London ACM SIGGRAPH is emerging as an exceptional addition to the ACM SIGGRAPH family.
One of the oldest conferences on computer graphics in Central Europe, the Spring Conference on Computer Graphics (SCCG) attempts to cover all interesting projects on computer graphics, image processing and imaging applications. The philosophy of SCCG is to combine top experts with young CG researchers and to support a good communication channel for the East-West exchange of ideas.
The Spring Conference on Computer Graphics (SCCG) is one of the oldest annual meetings of the computer graphics community in Central Europe, and covers a wide variety of topics on computer graphics, image processing and imaging applications. This year, SCCG will be held in cooperation with ACM, ACM SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, and a number of other well-known computer graphics organizations.
The deadline for submissions to Computer Graphics International (CGI) '15 is swiftly approaching. Full paper submissions to the conference -- which takes place from June 24 to 26 in Strasbourg, France -- are due by February 15, 2015. Short papers and posters must be submitted by April 24.
Computer Graphics International is one of the oldest international conferences on computer graphics. It is an essential yearly meeting where academics present their latest models and technologies, and explore new trends and ideas. In previous years, it has been held in many different places worldwide: UK, Germany, Australia, and many other nations in Europe, Asia, and America.
Up until the mid ‘90s, effects artists were people who made things with their hands. They wore paint-spattered clothing and rifled through tool boxes. They created aliens out of latex, turned foam into granite and constructed nine-foot spaceships from odds and ends found on dusty workshop shelves. The Millennium Falcon was a product of such physical craftsmanship, as was the creepy-yet-loveable E.T., the immaculate Discovery spacecraft in "2001: A Space Odyssey" and Major Toht’s grisly melting head in "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
In his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama made room in his speech to talk about a subject that some may have found an odd choice for a presidential address: 3D printing. His comments on 3D printing were positive, noting that the technology "has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything." A little over a year later, President Obama's prediction was proven true -- and in a rather personal way.
ACM Transactions on Graphics is the foremost peer-reviewed journal in the field of computer graphics. The term of the journal's current editor-in-chief -- Julie Dorsey of Yale University -- is ending, and the ACM Publications Board has assembled a nomination committee to aid the board in its selection of Ms. Dorsey's successor, whose term will begin January 1, 2015.
SIGGRAPH 2015 is the 42nd occurrence of the world's largest international conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques. The conference and exhibition will take place in Los Angeles from August 9 to 13, and is expected to draw attendance in the tens of thousands.
In 1994 the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg started an event that intended to put graduates from German Film and Media Schools in touch with the industry. It was labeled "Film and Media Exchange" and was supposed to take place every two years. With its high-quality presentations by international speakers, boothes and workshops by soft- and hardware vendors and additional partner events, it became an immediate success. After 1998 it changed its subtitle to "Congress for Digital Media Production".
ACM SIGGRAPH's Digital Art Community is now accepting submissions to its upcoming art show: "Enhanced Vision - Digital Video." The show will be an online international survey of today's most exciting and innovative digitally-enhanced video art works.
The creators of the show describe it as follows:
PIXELvienna is the Annual Austrian Computer Graphics and Animation Conference taking place in the beautiful setting of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna.
The Digital Content Expo is an international event intended to shape the future of the industry and promote the exchange of the latest information between participating researchers, creators and businesspeople. While the stars of the show at most trade shows are the products on display at the exhibition booths, at the Digital Content Expo the spotlight is focused on prototype systems and technology so new that it's still in the R&D stage.
The brand-new Munich ACM SIGGRAPH chapter will be celebrating its launch in style on Sunday, 21 September, with a talk from computer graphics veteran Paul Debevec. Debevec is the Former Vice President of ACM SIGGRAPH, and is widely recognized as a leader in the field for his impactful research in photorealistic image capture and rendering.
The Munich ACM SIGGRAPH chapter celebrates their launch with a talk by renowned computer graphics expert Paul Debevec. Former ACM President Alain Chesnais will also be present, along with Chair of the ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters Committee, Mashhuda Glencross.
Location: Main auditorium of the University of Television and Film (HFF) at Bernd Eichinger-Platz 1, Munich
The 22nd Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications (Pacific Graphics 2014) will be held in Seoul on Oct 8-10, 2014. Pacific Graphics (PG) is an annual international conference on computer graphics and applications. As a highly successful series, Pacific Graphics provides a premier forum for researchers, developers, practitioners in the Pacific Rim and around the world to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in computer graphics and related areas.
The 23rd International Conference on Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision will be held in Plzen, Czech Republic.
The International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and Applications aims at becoming a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners in Computer Graphics. The conference will be structured along five main tracks, covering different aspects related to Computer Graphics, from Modelling to Rendering, including Animation, Interactive Environments and Social Agents In Computer Graphics.
