Well, it’s that time of the year again – time to start thinking of the SIGGRAPH conference! This year it is in New Orleans from August 3-7. Are you planning to attend? Are you ready? Whether this is your first or 15th conference, let DC_SIGGRAPH help you prepare for this event. (For more information about the conference, you can check it out here: http://www.siggraph.org/s2009/ (http://www.siggraph.org/s2009/) )
Join DC_SIGGRAPH for an informal gathering to discuss the best way to prepare for the SIGGRAPH conference in New Orleans - how to get the most out of the conference, what to pack, how to plan your week. Hear about the differences between this conference and ones in previous year. Share your past experiences with first time conference attendees and learn about how to get involved with the ACM SIGGRAPH Professional and Student Chapters Committee at the conference (we need volunteers for the Professional chapters booth!).
For those of you who will not be attending the entire week or cannot attend at all, network with the group and arrange an information exchange after the conference. DC_SIGGRAPH invites all SIGGRAPH participants - past and present - to take part in this event.
The meeting will be held Thursday, July 23, from 7 – 9 pm at the BAE Systems. BAE is located at 8201 Greensboro Drive, Suite 1200, McLean, VA 22102. After the meeting, we can walk next door for continued networking and thirst quenching.
If you are interested in attending, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (http://email@example.com). Please RSVP so we can plan on serving light refreshments!
