Hey,

I'm traveling to Vancouver and wondered if people had already an idea of what they wanted to see at SIGGRAPH 2011.

Definately, the Rango and ILM Summer 2011 production sessions, the destruction for film course, the open source panel and several talks: fur & feathers, light my fire, mixed grill, directing destruction, crowds and ley there be light.

I am definitely heading to SIGGRAPH since it is so close for me. Since I am still learning and exploring this field, I am not sure what I want to or should check out. I'll be like a kid in a candy store not knowing to eat the candy or celophane!!! :D

I'm hoping to see some of the behind the scenes talks of the new movies that came out this year such as maybe How to Train Your Dragon. That would be sweet. Was a big fan of that!

Honestly, though, I usually figure all that out the first day of the conference once I get my hands on one of them fancy locators.

Sorry How To Train Your Dragon was last year. There were some talks at the Intel booth, and a Special Screening in some theatre.

What I really recomend is the Iphone app, it was really helpfull.

Ok guys, since you asked.

From the program:

International Center, Harbour Concourse

A brief talk about the Washington-area computer graphics market, and some of the activities carried out by the Washington DC ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter, showcasing a reel of work by our members at NASA and the National Transportation Safety Board.

The OpenCL Birds-of-a-feather session on Wednesday should be interesting. I'll be there.

I hope I'm not taking this a bit to far OT (in that case I'll make another thread), but this is my first trip to SIGGRAPH. When I've been to other similar conventions (like Annecy), you have to book/register for the different sessions (at least the interesting ones). While looking at the Siggraph website, I couldn't find anything about that. Have I missed something, or is it just a matter of showing up in good time? (I've got a full conference pass)

Yeah just a matter of getting there on time. First come, first served, to get a good seat.

Do they still give out the Siggraph Encore DVD? that case you could just attend the key notes and the Hollywood presentations. i am having a hard time cancelling out session that overlap the other awesome ones.
