SPARKS OVERVIEW

2024 06 SPARKS Postcard

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 5- to 10-minute lightning talks followed by a discussion based on the topic of the month. The discussions are moderated by DAC committee members along with invited guest moderators.   

SPARKS presenters are sometimes curated and sometimes selected from an open call. Submissions for the monthly SPARKS presentations are reviewed by the DAC committee along with the guest moderator.
***We apologize that the May SPARKS has been postponed till next year.
