Open Source Information

The ACM SIGGRAPH History Archive is an initiative created by individuals that believe in free exchange of information as a means of improving society. Education is only possible when information is obtainable. The SIGGRAPH community gathers together each year at the annual conference to freely exchange information, share knowledge and learn from each other. The work included in this archive is a testament to the fact that open access to information fuels innovation, creativity, and achievement.

At the same time, we ask that you respect the rights of the authors, researchers, practitioners, and artists and get their permission to use their work for commercial and non-educational purposes.


The SIGGRAPH History Online Archives team is looking for volunteers and materials.  

We need volunteers to do:  data entry, proofreading, quality assurance, image processing, and web programming. We also need information about past SIGGRAPH conferences and copies of conference materials such as information from the 1970s, 1980s, etc. and also SIGGRAPH publications such as the CG Quarterlies and SIGGRAPHITTI newsletters.  We also would like digital images of SIGGRAPH collectibles such as coffee cups and T-Shirts, etc.

If interested in getting involved or you have material to contribute:
Contact Bonnie Mitchell and Jan Searleman at historyarchives@siggraph.org.
