SIGGRAPH Asia all set to reunite the Computer Graphics Community this December with its very first Hybrid edition
Plans are underway to have a blend of in-person and virtual participants at the 14th ACM SIGGRAPH Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Asia
Tokyo, Japan, 11 August 2021 – SIGGRAPH Asia 2021’s in-person event in Tokyo, Japan is confirmed and will take place as planned from 14 – 17 December at the Tokyo International Forum. Japan has continued to hold business events and exhibitions throughout the year by adopting a wide variety of safe measures, hence our confidence in hosting SIGGRAPH Asia in a Hybrid format this year. In view of the evolving Covid-19 situation, the event organizers will also have a selected range of conference programs accessible online with networking opportunities for international attendees who may be unable to travel.
Some of the world’s leading brands such as Adobe Research, Amazon Web Services, Autodesk, Bandai Namco, Digital Hollywood University, FORUM8, IMAGICA GROUP, Khronos Group, PIXAR and SideFX have already confirmed their participation.
“FORUM8 has participated in SIGGGRAPH Asia 2018 in Tokyo, 2019 in Brisbane, and 2020’s Virtual event as an exclusive platinum sponsor. We have the confidence in SIGGRAPH Asia 2021 and have once again committed our support early as the event’s platinum sponsor. SIGGRAPH Asia is the to-go Computer Graphics event in the region, and we definitely will not want to miss being a part of it!” says Yuji Ito, President of FORUM8 Co., Ltd.
The event organizers are thrilled to announce that Toru Katsumoto, Executive Deputy President and CTO of Sony Group Corporation has been confirmed as an event Keynote speaker. Many more leading industry figures and experts will be announced in the near future. The conference programs’ call for submissions are ongoing and have also garnered very encouraging numbers as well. There will be ample cutting-edge content featured at the event.
“The past 18 months has been a series of challenges and introspections for all of us, and I believe everyone is eager for in-person events to resume this year. Safety of all participants is our utmost concern, but with large-scale events in Tokyo like the Olympics going on safely, it is assuring to organizers and participants that the local event will be able to pull through. The only uncertainty at this moment is the number of international attendees that can join us physically due to travel restrictions and quarantine requirements,” shared Shuzo John Shiota, SIGGRAPH Asia 2021 Conference Chair.
“With that beyond our control, we have decided to have a selected range of programs accessible online for our international attendees who may not be able to travel. With a team of very dedicated professionals working hard tirelessly, I am confident to bring forth an amazing hybrid edition for the community this December. We look forward to seeing you at the industry’s most anticipated reunion!” added Shuzo.
More details on the program line-up and registration ticket prices will be revealed in August. Registration for the event will be open in September.
