Computer Graphics Conference SIGGRAPH 2019 to Focus on How Technology Helps Us Thrive

Submissions Open for Summer Event in Los Angeles

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/SIGGRAPH2019?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#SIGGRAPH2019lt;/agt;–Under the leadership of Conference Chair Mikki Rose, Senior Fur
Technical Director at Blue Sky Studios, SIGGRAPH
2019
seeks submissions that cater to a central concept: Thrive. In
its 46th year, the conference is set for 28 July–1 August 2019 at the
Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA.


“The concept of ‘thrive’ is multifaceted,” noted Rose. “For some in our
community, it might mean to experience the latest advancements in a
given technology; for others, it could be the chance to connect and
create alongside like-minded professionals. I invite our community to
challenge and transform the future of computer graphics and interactive
techniques by sharing their work this summer.”

New this year, SIGGRAPH 2019 debuts a special
focus area on adaptive technology
, which aims to spotlight
technology that assists people with disabilities. Given the amazing
technologies being developed, such as robotic replacements or
enhancements, communication assistance devices, and more, leadership is
committed to shining a light on the many ways technology can be used to
help people and, hopefully, inspire further development. Adaptive
technology shows great potential for progressing how people may better
tell their story — an idea worth championing.

Currently open programs and deadlines are as follows:

  • 12 February – Appy Hour, Courses, Emerging Technologies, Groovy
    Graphics, Panels, Production Sessions, Student Volunteers, Studio,
    Talks
  • 19 March – Computer Animation Festival Electronic Theater
