Research Career Development Committee

Supporting computer graphics researchers at all levels

The SIGGRAPH Research Career Development Committee aims to foster the growth and diversity of the graphics research community through mentorship, advocacy, professional development, and support.


Promoting graphics research in industry and other research communities.

DEI and Accessibility

Making graphics research an inclusive community.


Fostering mentoring relationships between members of the graphics community at various career stages.

Professional Development

Connecting researchers and providing opportunities to learn new research skills.

Undergraduate Mentoring

The RCDC@SIGGRAPH Undergraduate Mentorship Program is for undergraduate students to get introduced to Graphics research, seek guidance about various sub-areas in Graphics, get feedback about their projects as well as get help for their graduate school applications.

Junior Scientist Mentoring

The RCDC@SIGGRAPH Junior Scientist Mentorship Program aims to improve mentorship support for junior faculty/research scientists and graduate students in computer graphics. Our goal is to connect researchers with mentors who can provide guidance at key junctures in career development and help them advance their careers as budding researchers.

Thesis Fast Forward

The SIGGRAPH Thesis Fast Forward is a unique forum for Ph.D. students in computer graphics to present their great research. This year, submitters should prepare a 3-minutes video that summarizes their Ph.D. topic and results. The submitted videos will be assembled and published online.

Conference Coffee

The conference coffee aims to emulate the random encounters and interactions between researchers which make up the true spice of in-person conferences. Sign up to get connected to other SIGGRAPH attendees during the event.

Guides for writing papers

We compiled a series of guides that provide a gentle introduction to all the tasks required to submit your SIGGRAPH/ToG article and get it published.
