The Professional and Student Chapters of ACM SIGGRAPH span the globe. Within their local areas, the chapters continue the work of ACM SIGGRAPH on a year-round basis via their meetings and other activities. Each ACM SIGGRAPH Professional Chapter consists of individuals involved in education, research & development, the arts, industry, entertainment, etc. who are interested in the advancement of computer graphics and interactive techniques, its related technologies and applications.

Chapter members gather throughout the year at meetings, site visits, conferences, video screenings, art shows and special events. Chapters maintain web sites which help you learn more about their activities, find links to helpful resources, and connect with other members of the computer graphics and interactive techniques community. Many cooperate with other organizations and professional societies within their communities.
