This is a Work in Progress and many sections do not have information and there are still many bugs. Keep checking back, we add new material each week. 


ACM SIGGRAPH is a Special Interest Group of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques. Since 1974, the SIGGRAPH conference has hosted an annual art show showcasing some of the world’s most innovative and creative digital artworks. The conference is attended by tens of thousands of computer artists, animators and other computing professionals.

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.
