SIGGRAPH 2018 officially opens with a welcome from Conference Chair, Roy C. Anthony, remarks from the ACM SIGGRAPH leadership, and the presentation of the ACM SIGGRAPH Awards, which recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to the computer graphics community through their research, teaching, service, or writing.
Among the most prestigious of honors in computer graphics, ACM SIGGRAPH awards are presented to people who are leaders in the field, or destined to become so. The award talks session at the annual SIGGRAPH conference gives winners the opportunity to expound on their background and research.
This panel celebrates the first fully functioning 3D AR/VR system: real-time, see-through, stereo, perspective display; and two different head trackers: ultrasonic and mechanical (the “Sword of Damocles”).
