SIGGRAPH Physical Archive Collection

The ACM SIGGRAPH is now collecting materials for the SIGGRAPH Master Collection of physical artifacts.  The temporary home to the Master Collection is Bowling Green State University, home of the SIGGRAPH 1975 conference.

The types of materials we are collecting include:

  • SIGGRAPH and SICGRAPH Publications (very early publications to the present)
    • Proceedings, Catalogs, CG Quarterlies, Conference Abstracts and Applications, etc.
  • SIGGRAPH Promotional Materials
    • Calls for Participation, postcards, advertising, SIGGRAPHITTI, etc.
  • SIGGRAPH Conference Programs
    • Preliminary and Final
  • Conference Information Handouts
    • Electronic Theater Booklets, Locators, etc.
  • SIGGRAPH Artifacts and Swag
    • Pins, Mugs, T-Shirts, etc.
