ACM SIGGRAPH Theater Events

Informative sessions on the current state of computer graphics around the world, organized by representatives of the International Resources Committee, ACM SIGGRAPH, and affiliated societies.


Since its beginning in 1974 as a small group of specialists in a previously unknown discipline, ACM SIGGRAPH has evolved to become an international community of researchers, artists, developers, filmmakers, scientists, and business professionals who share an interest in computer graphics and interactive techniques. ACM SIGGRAPH offers a diverse menu of programs and services for its members and the computer graphics community.

In addition to the content listed below, the following events are also happening during SIGGRAPH 2020
