Bibliographic information about the SIGGRAPH conference

SIGGRAPH at the year n is also the <n-1973>th annual conference on Computer graphics and interactive techniques.

Papers accepted at SIGGRAPH 200n are published in the journal ACM Transactions on Graphics, volume n+19, n 3 (so SIGGRAPH 2005 is volume 24, n 3). This formula is valid for n > 1.

Papers published at SIGGRAPH between 1993 and 2001 (included) were not published elsewhere. The same is also true for SIGGRAPH 1974 (the first conference!).

Between 1975 and 1992 (inclusive), SIGGRAPH was published as a number of the journal Computer Graphics, volume <year - 1966>. The issue is usually n 3, except for the following years:

1975: n 1
1976-1977, 1979, 1992: n 2

Only the scientific papers published at SIGGRAPH are published in ACM Transactions on Graphics. Sketches, courses... are not. For them, you should use @inproceedings.
