Heading to SIGGRAPH 2018

DeLonna Scott 3D Modeling, Industry News, Site

SIGGRAPH 2018 is almost here! This year’s conference spans over August 12-16 in Vancouver.  Some of TurboSquid’s & PixelSquid’s finest will be present, so if you’re attending or just want to follow along through social media, here’s everything you’ll need to know.

What does SIGGRAPH stand for?

The Association of Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques is quite the mouthful, so ACM SIGGRAPH is what you’ll likely hear and see instead. Once a year, the association puts on the SIGGRAPH conference which is the “world’s largest conference on computer graphics.” Tens of thousands of computer graphics professionals attend annually.


B. Pesrchall, VP

We’re sending in some of our own Squids to SIGGRAPH 2018 including Matt Wisdom, Dade Orgeron, Dan Lion, and Beau Perschall.
