    Quote from Daniel Filonik, SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Student Volunteers (SV) Co-Chair:


    “The Student Volunteer Program at SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia is a unique opportunity for students from a wide variety of backgrounds to come together and shape these keystone events in the CG community. Throughout the exhilarating proceedings, student volunteers provide key service support across all essential areas of the conference, ensuring its smooth operations. This intense experience results in a strong sense of camaraderie among a group of highly motivated and talented individuals, who are brought together by their heartfelt passion for the CG industry. It has been a special privilege for me to be part of the big and amazing family that forms every year, and I always leave deeply inspired by their energy, their dedication, and their enthusiasm to contribute back to the program and the community.”
