COVID-19 Chapters Communication and Self-Confinement Resources

As COVID-19 spreads across the world, governments & health organisations have asked populations to exercise confinement and social-distancing as means to alleviate stress on hospitals.

Our goals as ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters are to connect, promote and inform global CG communities, but also to mindfully prevent any harm our activities could cause. With this in mind, many chapters have already suspended all in-person activities until the end of the COVID-19 epidemic.

In the past few weeks, a number of organisations have had to cancel their conferences. We will keep you informed as to any developments with SIGGRAPH 2020 which is currently still planned to foster inspiration and progress 19–23 July in Washington, D.C.

Finally, as a silver lining, here is a list of recent generous acts and online events from our industry that we think can be shared with everyone to help in their social-distancing:

The list grows day by day, so we’ll be maintaining and updating this blog post. We encourage you to tweet your suggestions to @SIGGRAPH_PSCC to be added to the list!

Stay home, Stay safe!
