Volunteering at SIGGRAPH is a great way to familiarize yourself with the event, if you have never been to it, or are just getting started.

And, Vancouver is a great town.

SIGGRAPH 2011 marks the 38th annual conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques and the first time it will travel outside the US. Vancouver, BC here we come!


The SIGGRAPH 2011 Student Volunteer Program is a unique opportunity for students to meet people involved in all areas of the computer graphics industry while contributing to the overall success of the SIGGRAPH Conference.


As a Student Volunteer, you will go behind the scenes to help run an international event, which draws thousands of people who share a passion for advanced computer graphics technologies. In return for your hard work, you will receive complimentary admission to the entire SIGGRAPH 2011 Conference.  In addition, there will be a variety of exclusive events coordinated just for you, the Student Volunteers, from special industry-led sessions to résumé and portfolio reviews!  Many industry leaders began their journey to stardom with their involvement in the SIGGRAPH Student Volunteer Program... you could be next!


To qualify for the Student Volunteer Program, you need to be a high school, undergraduate, or graduate student enrolled full time for at least one semester during the 2010-2011 school year and be at least 18 years of age before the SIGGRAPH 2011 Conference. The conference will run Sunday, 7 August through Thursday, 11 August, 2011 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. For more details on this wonderful opportunity, please check out:



In short, the Student Volunteers play an integral part of building the community at SIGGRAPH. Join us and help “Make It Home.”




See you in Vancouver!
