Check out what’s in store for SIGGRAPH 2020, 19-23 July, 2020 in Washington, D.C.!
Unfortunately, every conference experiences some theft. While SIGGRAPH 2019 does provide security at the convention center, you should exercise standard precautions in securing equipment (especially small, mobile items) when it is in the convention center.
As a service to our contributors, SIGGRAPH 2019 insures equipment from the time it enters the Los Angeles Convention Center to the time it leaves the convention center, provided: (a) receipt and outbound shipping occur while the convention center is occupied by SIGGRAPH 2019, and (b) an equipment Insurance form was completed and submitted on or before 1 July 2019. If you have not completed and submitted the insurance form by 1 July 2019, your equipment will not be insured by SIGGRAPH 2019.
Insuring Your Equipment
If your work is accepted for presentation at SIGGRAPH 2019, and you want to have your equipment insured while at the convention center, you will be asked to complete the online Equipment Insurance Form by 1 July.
If you are an equipment donor, you will be asked to complete the online Equipment Insurance Form by 1 July.
