SIGDOC is the Special Interest Group on Design of Communication of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
SIGDOC was founded in 1975 by Joseph "Joe" Rigo.
The mission of SIGDOC includes:
SIGDOC's mission is to advance the state of knowledge, encourage the research, and support the interdisciplinary practice of the design of communication.
SIGDOC emphasizes the following areas of special interest to its members:
SIGDOC sponsors a number of awards as a means of recognizing outstanding contributions to the field. Awards are presented at the annual SIGDOC conference.
The Rigo Award is presented to an individual for a lifetime of significant work in the design of communication. Rigo Awards are given every other year, during even-numbered years. Previous winners include the following:
The Diana Award is given every other year, during odd-numbered years, to an organization which has collectively made an impact on the field. Previous winners include the following:
|2017||Laura Gonzalez||Designing a Multilingual User Experience Research Center to Support Language Accessibility in a Binational Community|
