This was my third Siggraph - though it was my first time as a full conference attendee (previous were Exhibition only).

The exhibition this year was a little sadder then previous times. Most notable for me from when I last attended in LA in 2004 was the fact half the exhibition hall was empty, and that there were a minimal amount of material to collect from booths. Usually I can leave with like 10Kg's of brochures, demo disks, bags, etc. This time it was only like 5Kg's - lol!

However, as some have noted, the conference itself was great stuff. Plenty of production oriented materials. I went to a lot of technical overviews on volumetrics in VFX and I really did find a mix of talks and courses were extremely fascinating and educational in a big way for me. I also ordered the Encore set - Given the amount of great stuff I went to, and even more great stuff I had to miss out on because of timetabling clashes, it is definitely an excellent thing to purchase.

kevman- Maybe out of consideration to the presenters and organizers of Siggraph you might edit your title from "worst siggraph ever" to "Smallest Siggraph Yet", since judging from your post it wasn't bad at all, just smaller.

Heard the job fair was pretty much a joke too, but I guess that's not surprising in this economy...

And that is a factor that has to be considered.
This year's SIGGRAPH had some incredible courses and panels..
There organizers did their best about the show floor and the job fair.
