SIGGRAPH 2021 Announces Slate of Technical and Art Papers Research for August Virtual Conference
Programming to Feature 191 Projects From 22 Countries, Including Art Papers Best in Show
CHICAGO—SIGGRAPH 2021 announces 191 selected research projects from 22 countries as part of both its Technical and Art Papers programs this summer. The state-of-the-art research projects cover the many subfields of computer graphics and interactive techniques. The 48th annual conference’s live events will run 9–13 August, with on-demand talks from researchers available 2 August–29 October.

SP-GAN is a new unsupervised generative model, adopting a "sphere prior" to enable high-quality 3D shape (point clouds) synthesis and structure-aware shape manipulation through an implicitly embedded dense correspondence.

This paper presents a caricature generation framework based on StyleGAN, which automatically creates a realistic and detailed caricature from an input photo with optional controls on shape exaggeration and color stylization.

This paper presents SWAGAN, a style- and wavelet-based generative adversarial network designed to side-step the spectral bias of neural networks and alleviate the recently identified high-frequency deficiency in image synthesis models.

The paper proposes a novel, three-way coupling framework to simulate the surface-tension-dominant contact between rigid and fluid, which uses a Lagrangian surface membrane to handle the interactions between solids and fluid.
Bad Mother / Good Mother: The Poetics and Politics of the Sounds of Invisible Labor
Author: Annina Rüst, Florida Atlantic University
“Bad Mother / Good Mother” is an audiovisual performance about motherhood and the workplace. It explores societal perceptions about ideal and non-ideal motherhood through sound and projected visuals. The paper contributes to an existing matrilineal tradition within audiovisual performance and electronic sound.

Inspired by Iranian historical masks used to protect women from the gaze of colonial patriarchal oppressor, this project suggests strategies of resistance for women against contemporary patriarchal oppression. In the work, two masks begin to communicate with each other, blinking their eyelashes in rapid succession using AI-generated Morse code.
ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field's challenges. ACM SIGGRAPH is a special interest group within ACM that serves as an interdisciplinary community for members in research, technology, and applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. The SIGGRAPH conference is the world’s leading annual interdisciplinary educational experience showcasing the latest in computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH 2021, the 48th annual conference hosted by ACM SIGGRAPH, will take place virtually with live events 9–13 August and on-demand content available starting 2 August through 29 October.
