Even though the spread of Covid-19 has rendered in-person events impossible, NYC ACM SIGGRAPH is planning several remote events over the next few months to help keep our community connected until we can meet once again. Keep your eyes on this space as details emerge.
MetroCAF 2020: We will soon be accepting submissions for our annual NYC Metropolitan-area college Computer Animation Festival, currently planned for the fall. Submissions and event information will be detailed at www.metrocaf.org.
Bring Your Own Animation: Our first ONLINE Bring Your Own Animation will be May 12. People have found ways of having happy hours and dance parties online–we are going to throw some animation in the mix and keep our monthly event rolling along.
Industry Spotlight: NYC ACM SIGGRAPH’s biggest event will be held in the fall this year, with some of the city’s best and brightest VFX and animation houses giving you a look at the state of the industry in NYC.
Various Panels: We will also be hosting some online panels looking into the sciences and arts of computer graphics in the months to come, details forthcoming!
We certainly hope that you are all healthy and safe during this unprecedented time, and we look forward to seeing you all in person again as soon as possible. In the meantime, we’ll be visiting each others’ screens soon!

NYC ACM SIGGRAPH is run by volunteers. The NYC ACM SIGGRAPH Board of Directors provides direction and oversight for the organization.
It is time for Elections for 2019 – 2021. We are seeking nominees for Vice-President, Secretary and three At Large Board of Director positions. All nominees must be current members of NYC ACM SIGGRAPH who have been a member for at least one year; members with less than one year membership who have been a primary organizer on an event or presented at an event are eligible to run for the Board. (Nominees for Officer positions must be current members of the Board of Directors.) Experience with the organization as a volunteer is also strongly encouraged, but not required.
If you are interested in running for the Board or would like to nominate someone, let us know. You can nominate yourself using this Google form [link].
If you wish to nominate somebody else, contact the Elections Chair
For the upcoming elections, nominations must be made no later than 11:59PM EDT on Sunday, July 7, 2019.
Nominations must be accompanied by the nominee’s name, address, telephone number, and email address. It should also include a brief bio (maximum of 100 words) and a statement explaining why the nominee would like to run for the Board.

Board Membership can be truly rewarding
Board members (Directors) help to direct the vision and mission of NYC ACM SIGGRAPH.
Board members propose, plan, coordinate, and manage NYC ACM SIGGRAPH events.
- Board members interact with the NYC metro area CG and digital arts community.
- Board members work with industry and academic leaders in this community.
- Board members often serve as mentors for NYC ACM SIGGRAPH volunteers.
Of course, being a BOD member also carries certain responsibilities
