The ACM SIGGRAPH organization is developing an online archive showcasing information about presentations and experiences as well as artifacts and the organization’s history. A physical archive was also established to supply information necessary for the online archive. In August 2023, SIGGRAPH will celebrate its 50th conference and the materials in the archive will be used in displays of collectables and other artifacts, visualization posters, interactive kiosks and an immersive, interactive time tunnel.
