DescriptionThis presentation will showcase the new ACM SIGGRAPH History Archive currently in development. In 2023, SIGGRAPH will be celebrating its 50th conference and will be focusing on the significant contributions to computer graphics and interactive techniques that the SIGGRAPH community has made over the years. The online archive is being designed to enable cross-connections between data, including direct relationships between contributors and their contributions. This is a volunteer effort involving pioneers, artists, computer scientists, interns, students, and other SIGGRAPH community members. The archive team is currently collecting, digitizing, and entering all SIGGRAPH-related artifacts to this new online resource. The archive currently contains information related to: Conferences, Contributors, Appy Hour, Art Show, Computer Animations, E-Tech, CG Quarterly, SIGGRAPH Video Review (SVR), Courses, Awards, and Collectibles. This project is an incredible resource for historians, researchers, educators, students, artists, practitioners, and community members. The archive and related historical information will be presented by Bonnie Mitchell, Jan Searleman, Mary Whitton, Dana Plepys, and the student archive team (Alexa Mahajan, Luis Wilson, Lindsey Sykes, and Felix Bangert).
