General Information

ACM SIGGRAPH Privacy Policy for Attendee Tracking

During 2016, attendee badges will be scanned at the entrance to several session rooms. The scanners will collect two data points: registration level and time of entry. This information will be correlated with an anonymized version of the registration database, which will not include personal information (name, address, email, title, company, address, city, phone, member number, etc.). The correlated data will be used to determine which sessions are attended, the registration levels of attendees in particular sessions, and attendee traffic patterns throughout the conference.

The correlated data will be stored on the SIGGRAPH Google Apps site in a protected location that is available only to SIGGRAPH volunteers for conference planning purposes. The data will not be shared outside the SIGGRAPH organization.

For best results, we hope that all attendees will provide their badges for scanning. But badge scanning is not required to attend SIGGRAPH 2016 sessions. 

ACM SIGGRAPH respects and protects attendee privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about how we collect, analyze, and securely store attendee data, please send a message via this email form.
