Informal presentations, discussions, and demonstrations for people who share interests, goals, technologies, environments, or backgrounds. Birds of a Feather sessions are proposed by SIGGRAPH Asia 2016 attendees. They must be free of charge, related to computer graphics or interactive techniques, and non-commercial in nature.
ACM local chapters engage members through talks by local practitioners, visits from prominent speakers from the ACM Distinguished Speakers Program, technical and career workshops, field trips to computing installations, and social activities. Chapters are the engines that drive networking and learning on a local level.
The ACM SIGGRAPH International Resources Committee’s volunteers represent regions of the world and enthusiastically share their professional and language skills with the ACM SIGGRAPH community. Throughout the year, the committee fosters worldwide collaboration among regional CG communities, providing a platform for communication and dissemination of SIGGRAPH-related topics.
Before the conference, the committee works intensively to:
- Provide an English Review Service to help submitters whose first language is not English
- Produce information services that make the conference more accessible to international attendees (multilingual podcasts for the Art Gallery, Emerging Technologies, and VR Village; blogs and regional articles; more efficient social media)
- Organize the regional meetings that are held during the conference.
They manage the International Resources Committee Sessions which are presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2016.
