A regional platform for computer graphics, creative arts, animation, and visual effects, SIGGRAPH ASIA 2019 is all set to be held at Brisbane, Australia from 17th to 20th November 2019. This event is being held for the first time in Australia and will be a showcasing platform for digital imaging, research, science, art, engineering, animation, interactivity, computer vision, creative AI, education and emerging technologies.
Companies and creators from across the globe will be attending this 4-day event to learn and to showcase their innovative work and to also create and support new business ventures.
Tomasz Bednarz, Conference Chair for SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 remarks that, “For artists and scientists, SIGGRAPH Asia is a very special and unique place. It is a second home where all passions are driven by computer graphics and interactive techniques converge. This year’s edition is carefully designed to inspire everyone – an event you definitely cannot miss.”
The theme for SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 is ‘DREAM ZONE,’ and it is inspired by Australian Indigenous belief in the power of dreaming and the beginning of knowledge and form. Bednarz elaborates, “It is a place where all our dreams converge; permits anyone to dream using computer graphics and interactive techniques. Technology enables art, science, design, engineering, to be without limits, connecting with our passions, and things we care about.”
Held in South Bank, which is the cultural, social, educational and recreational precinct of Brisbane, SIGGRAPH Asia 2019’s venue is the internally recognized Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Center.
