ACM SIGGRAPH Conference Advisory Group  

Annual Conference Finances

The SIGGRAPH Conference income is primarily from Conference registration and the sale of exhibition space. The total conference income is almost half of all of the income that ACM receives from all their sponsored conferences. Of the net income a portion is transferred to ACM, another portion is used by ACM SIGGRAPH to offset its operational expenses, and the rest, if any, is then transferred to the ACM SIGGRAPH Reserve Fund.
