What is SIGGRAPH?
ACM SIGGRAPH is the world's largest international conference where computer graphics and interactive technologies are presented, and has been held every year in North America for 48 years.
Since 2008, "SIGGRAPH Asia" has been held every winter as an Asian event of SIGGRAPH. The second year will be held in Yokohama in 2009, Kobe in 2015, Tokyo in 2018, and Japan for the fourth time this year.
It is scheduled to be held at the Tokyo International Forum from December 14th to 17th, 2021. (Because of the influence of COVID-19, there is a possibility that the event will be held online, so please check the WEB page.)
Program planned for SIGGRAPH Asia 2021
SIGGRAPH Asia 2021 offers a variety of programs.
You can also see the various programs in the highlight video when SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 was also held at the Tokyo International Forum.
How should I participate in SIGGRAPH Asia and what should I see?
SIGGRAPH, where many of the above programs are held in parallel. For first-time participants, especially students, even if they want to participate in SIGGRAPH Asia (SA), it may be difficult to know what to participate in because there are too many participants and programs.
Here are the webins prepared by SA2021 Local Committee, SA2021 Student Volunteers, SIGGRAPH Tokyo, and CG-ARTS to answer such concerns!

SIGGRAPH is a huge international conference where you can't decide what to look for even if it is held locally. If you participate online, you may get lost on the road and not enjoy it. Why don't you listen to the voices of experienced people, enjoy SIGGRAPH together, learn about cutting-edge technology, and make a presentation?
