ACM SIGGRAPH International Resources Committee

ACM SIGGRAPH is an international organization, with members focused on creating and discovering computer graphics/interactivity at companies, studios and research centers around the world. Attendees and contributors of its annual conferences travel far and near to create, inspire and enjoy the vibrant sense of community that is SIGGRAPH.

To support this, the ACM SIGGRAPH International Resources Committee (IRC) hosts the International Center at the SIGGRAPH conference, and also drives year-round strategies that promote ACM SIGGRAPH, connect our global community, and provide useful services.

Multilingual Audio Guides

Every year, the International Resources Committee produces audio guides (audio files and text documents in PDF format) that highlight the work displayed in the Art Gallery and the demos in Emerging Technologies (and other areas, from year to year). The podcasts are available in multiple languages, including: English, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

International Center & ACM SIGGRAPH Theater

At the SIGGRAPH conferences in North America, the International Center features a visitor-services booth, a lounge, and the ACM SIGGRAPH Theater: a space for meetings, talks and demonstrations. This is the place for attendees from overseas to meet peers, chill-out during conference, and get to know more about what is happening in CG around the world.
At the SIGGRAPH Asia conferences we host a visitor-services booth, and since 2016 we organize regional sessions that take place in one of the conference rooms.

English Review Service

The International Resources Committee’s English Review Service offers expertise that could greatly improve the material you submit to the SIGGRAPH conference. A team of native English-speaking volunteers will read your submission and provide suggestions to improve the legibility of the text in English. If you think your submission might benefit from this service, please read this year’s guidelines:
