Autodesk at SIGGRAPH 2014: Does Absence Make the Heart Grow Fonder?

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

SIGGRAPH 2014 was held this year in Vancouver, British Columbia, a venue that was great, but one that was guaranteed to have a smaller draw than when the annual computer graphics conference is held in Los Angeles. By smaller draw, I mean not only fewer attendees, but also fewer exhibitors.

This year’s most noticeable absence on the show floor was Autodesk, a giant in media and entertainment (M&E). However, was it really that surprising? On one hand, yes; but on the other hand, no.

ShareCG To Share SIGGRAPH 2014 Experience

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

As the new editor of ShareCG, I just returned from SIGGRAPH 2014 in Vancouver, British Columbia — an exhausting, but exciting look into the future of CG and interactivity.

SIGGRAPH (short for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques) is the name of the annual conference on computer graphics (CG) convened by the ACM SIGGRAPH organization.

SIGGRAPH is widely recognized as the most prestigious forum for publishing and disseminating computer graphics research and development.

The conference also hosts the international SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival, showcasing works from the world’s most innovative and accomplished digital film and video creators. Juried and curated content includes outstanding achievements in time-based art, scientific visualization, visual effects, real-time graphics, and narrative shorts. The Computer Animation Festival is always a “must see” at SIGGRAPH!
