The SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Committee (DAC) presents SPARKS: Short Presentations of Artworks & Research for the Kindred Spirit. The SPARKS presentations and discussions are held monthly and consist of 3-5 minute lightning talks followed by an inclusive discussion based on the topic of the month.  The discussions are moderated by DAC committee members along with invited guest facilitators.

Submissions for future sessions are OPEN. Submissions for the monthly SPARKS presentations will be reviewed by the DAC committee along with the guest moderator. 

Lightning Talks and Discussion

Presentations should consist of approximately 10 slides and should be no longer than 5 minutes long or the designated time allotted by the moderators. The monthly signup will be posted after presenters are selected. Everyone is invited to attend the presentations and engage in the discussion!
