I’ve been talking about having a DC_SIGGRAPH “How to Prepare for the
SIGGRAPH conference” meeting before everyone heads off to LA at the
end of the month. The meeting was going to be this week, but I’ve
come to the realization that I am woefully unprepared for the
meeting. Since I am unable to attend the conference in LA (due to
upcoming maternity leave – “soon”) I have no idea what’s “new” or
“hot” to see at the conference. I don’t even know what classes are
offered this year!

DC_SIGGRAPH had a wonderful “SIGGRAPH De-Brief and Schwag Exchange” meeting, but many of you expressed regret that you didn’t get to see ALL the photos (Roberto had hundreds!). So as a pre-meeting event, we’ll present a slide show of “all” the conference photos (with minor editing to fit in the time allotted.). So come early to see the slide show – the slide show starts at 6:30!
At 7pm, DC_SIGGRAPH will show the SIGGRAPH 2009 Computer Animation Festival (part 1). The SIGGRAPH Video Reviews showcase some of the year’s most dazzling and innovative collection of submitted works selected by a distinguished jury of computer graphics experts and specialists.
For those of you who are interested, the conversations can continue at the hotel next door.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can plan for refreshments.
Hope to see you there!
