DC_SIGGRAPH would like to announce the next 2 meetings: June 14, 2006
and June 21, 2006. June 14 is our annual "preparing for the SIGGRAPH
conference". We are calling it "Re-Discover Boston". June 21 will be
our Demo Reel Night - Part 2 where Jef Shears will discuss what he is NOT
seeing in demo reels but would like to see. (More information on our
June 21 meeting will follow in a seperate announcement.)
Wednesday, June 14, 2006
The SIGGRAPH conference has not been in Boston since 1989. Do you
remember it? Are you planning to return this July 30 to August 3? Or is
this your first SIGGRAPH conference and you’re looking for information?
Are you a Boston native and have tips to share about the area? Whether
this is your first or 15th conference, let DC_SIGGRAPH help you prepare
for this event.
Join DC_SIGGRAPH for an informal gathering to discuss the best way to
prepare for the SIGGRAPH conference in Boston - how to get the most out
of the conference, what to pack, how to plan your week. Learn how to
get involved with the ACM SIGGRAPH Professional and Student Chapters
Committee at the conference by volunteering at the Chapters booth, plan
your schedule and share your past experiences with first time conference
attendees. For those of you who will not be attending the entire week
or cannot make it to Boston at all, network with the group and arrange
an information exchange after the conference.
DC_SIGGRAPH invites this year’s SIGGRAPH participants to take part in
this event. The event will be held Wednesday, June 14, from 7 – 9 pm at
the BAE Systems. BAE is located at 8201 Greensboro Drive, Suite 1200,
McLean, VA 22102. Directions to BAE Systems can be found at:
The first hour of the evening we will hear conference and registration
information, share experiences, and tips-and-tricks to get the most out
of the SIGGRAPH conference. Afterwards we can head to the Holiday Inn
next door for continued networking, sharing and thirst quenching. If
you are interested in attending, please email us at
