As part of our efforts to continually improve the ACM SIGGRAPH member communication, we are interested in understanding which social media channels our members use so we can effectively communicate with you. Through our strategic planning and in an effort to "Enable Everyone to Tell Their Story," the organization feels using the appropriate channels to communicate is an important task. We have created a short survey, which will take about 5-10 minutes of you time to take.
It is with deep sadness that we communicate that ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics pioneer John Staudhammer has died. John was a noted American Electrical Engineer and a devoted educator. He was born in 1932 in Budapest, Hungary, and his family emigrated to the USA in 1949. A member of ACM SIGGRAPH and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, John served as senior editor-in-chief of the IEEE Computer Graphics and Application magazine from 1987-1990. He received the IEEE Distinguished Service award in 1990, was a Life Senior Member (1995) and Golden Core Member (1996).
ACM SIGGRAPH has been in existence since the late 1960s, and is comprised of thousands of enthusiastic members who live all over the world. ACM SIGGRAPH members work in a wide variety of industries, engrossed in myriad occupations - but are all united by a shared passion for computer graphics.
In tribute to the abundant individuality present in our membership, ACM SIGGRAPH has begun to gather the stories of its members and share them with the wider world.
