International Resources

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; Technical Papers video subtitles; blogs and regional articles; more efficient social media),
  • Organize the regional meetings that are held during the conference.

At SIGGRAPH 2016, the International Resources Committee operates the International Center, a meeting place that offers bilingual tours of conference programs, informal translation services, and a space for meetings, talks, and demonstrations. We also manage the ACM SIGGRAPH Theater, where regional and ACM SIGGRAPH-related meetings and international Birds of a Feather sessions are presented.

Are you a planetary citizen interested in international culture, curious about the state of computer graphics across the globe, and eager to share not only your language but also your professional skills with the ACM SIGGRAPH community? We are always looking for people interested in joining us.

Our selection process is based on availability and need, so please complete ACM SIGGRAPH's Organization Volunteer Form and let us know how would you contribute to the International Resources Committee.

We cover all continents by assigning general regions to our committee members:

  • USA and Canada
  • Latin America
  • Europe and Russia
  • Africa and the Middle East
  • Asia
  • Australasia

In order to represent a world region, you should live at least part-time in that region and should be able to speak at least one regional language (as well as English).

See you in Anaheim in July!
