Diversity, Equity And Inclusion

Submission Deadline: 13 August 2023, 23:59 AoE (Closed)

SIGGRAPH Asia prioritizes conversations and industry contributions that spotlight how diversity makes our communities, industries, and teams stronger. This conference provides a safe place to grow, discuss, and learn from one another and to bridge boundaries with the goal of making our community more inclusive and accessible to all.
The ACM SIGGRAPH Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee encourages submissions across every SIGGRAPH program. Content will be presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2023 in Sydney, Australia.

General Information:

Our committee will review submissions inclusive of SIGGRAPH’s broad range of content — from DEI Talks, speaker proposals, animations, Courses, BOFs, or Panels! Unless your submission is primarily targeted for a different call for proposals, our call for submissions is designed to create a program of content that reflects the diversity of our community. Surprise us, amaze us — our call is open to any type of content. We embrace a neuro-diverse and inclusive approach to content.

We would love to see submissions addressing but not limited to:

  • Disability and accessibility
  • DEI technology
  • Employee activism
  • Employee resource groups
  • DEI in education
  • Global diversity practices
  • Legal agreements
  • Mental health in the workplace
  • Mentorship and sponsorship
  • Pay equity/pay equality
  • Recruitment, retention, advancement
  • Resources for underrepresented groups
  • Long-term structural change for inclusive work environments
  • Allyship: how to be an ally

Submissions are open through 13 August 2023. Acceptance or rejection notices will be sent by 31 August 2023.

Tag your submission #DEI if your work spotlights issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion — regardless of the category or type of content you are submitting. #DEI
