2010 will mark my first time at Siggraph, and I am quite excited. I received an email from them yesterday, however, which rather explicitly stated that no cameras were allowed anywhere in Siggraph. To quote the message:
No cameras or recording devices are permitted at SIGGRAPH 2010. Abuse of this policy will result in the loss of the individual’s registration credentials.
I hate to sound thick-headed, but does this really mean that absolutely no cameras can be used anywhere (i.e. even the floor)? I could understand that some companies don’t want their talks to be recorded, but I have a hard time believing that I won’t be able to snap a photo of some new insane hologram or software bundle. I fully respect proprietary information, but would like to take a photo or two…
Anyone know anything more specific?
