This is the San Diego Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH, slated to build local interest on computer graphics and interactive techniques, for educational, artistic and scientific purposes. It's free to join this Meetup ($0), but we encourage you to become a Full Member in order to enhance your involvement, opportunities, and chances to receive cool giveaways! To join as a Full Member for a year, just make a $20 PayPal donation (note 'Chapter membership' and member name in the donation comments), or you can pay with cash, check, or credit card at our meetings.
Throughout the year, we focus on interactivity and computer graphics, which includes a wide range of areas. We have members interested in Web design/development, visualization, augmented reality, electronics/microprocessors, 3d, and technical aspects of computer graphics. We are also directly involved in the annual SIGGRAPH conferences.
Within their local areas, Chapters promote the goals and mission of ACM SIGGRAPH on a year-round basis via their meetings and other activities. Each ACM SIGGRAPH Professional and Student Chapter consists of individuals involved in education, research & development, the arts, industry and entertainment. ACM SIGGRAPH chapter members are interested in the advancement of computer graphics and interactive techniques, and related technologies and applications. They gather throughout the year at meetings, site visits, conferences, video screenings, art shows and special events.
The ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH) is an interdisciplinary community interested in research, technology, and applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Members include researchers, developers, and users from the technical, academic, business, and art communities. ACM SIGGRAPH enriches the computer graphics and interactive techniques community year-round through its conferences, global network of professional and student chapters, publications, and educational activities.
ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM strengthens the computing profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for lifelong learning, career development and professional networking.
Our officers plan events, line up speakers, write the newsletter, mail announcements, and handle the administration of the local ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter. Their term lasts 2 years (currently June 2010 through June 2012).
Comments and questions are actively encouraged. Please feel free to contact any of our officers.
