The 45th SIGGRAPH conference, world's leading annual interdisciplinary educational event showcasing the latest in computer graphics and interactive techniques, will take place August 12-16 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
"This year, we are celebrating generations, a theme that has several connotations based on the really rich history of SIGGRAPH," commented Roy C. Anthony, Conference Chair. "In the literal sense, it refers to the fact that pioneers in computer graphics from previous decades attend our conference each year, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the world's newest and youngest researchers and practitioners. As we gather across multiple disciplines to innovate, relate, and grow, the term 'generations' is also a nod to the generations of software and hardware that keep getting better, faster, and more amazing every few years. Additionally, SIGGRAPH also 'generates' new ideas and connections, which is essentially the whole purpose of the conference."
The 2018 SIGGRAPH will showcase the best in computer art and design, the bleeding edge of technology and research in graphics, from every corner of the globe.
