Here, we look beyond this year as SIGGRAPH 2022 Chair Munkhtsetseg “Muunuu” Nandigjav offers a preview of next year’s event, slated for Vancouver (August 7-11, 2022), which will will also be accompanied by a virtual component.
We aim to have an in-person conference with a virtual component. In January 2019, we announced the conference location for SIGGRAPH 2022. As of now, our plans have not changed. With hopes that the world will be a much safer place for travelers next year, we are very excited to be in Vancouver for SIGGRAPH 2022.
Did the virtual show open up the conference to people who otherwise couldn’t attend live?
Through the process of planning and hosting virtual conferences in 2020 and now in 2021, we have learned a lot, especially when it comes to providing more flexibility and more opportunities for those who cannot travel. . As we plan for SIGGRAPH 2022, we keep this in mind and hope that we can continue to grow our audience and provide more inclusive opportunities to access content. The SIGGRAPH 2022 conference committee, with the support of conference leadership, is excited and working hard to create the first hybrid conferencing experience in our community’s history.
