I applied to be a team leader in the SV program once again. Planning to be there all week and probably a little longer, as always!

It’s awesome you already started the SIGGRAPH Diary for this conference, Paul!


#7

Hong Kong is such an amazing city, can’t wait to go back!


#8

My friend went there and he told me that it was an awesome city… I really want to participate in siggraph asia this year… but is it any better than a regular siggraph??


#9

Singapore, Yokohama and Seoul have had their run. SIGGRAPH Asia conferences are comparable in every way to the regular ‘USA-based’ conference, yet outside the halls, the cultural experience is far beyond anything on offer in Los Angeles. Staged in a different Asian city each year, Hong Kong is next up.

The sessions are just as powerful, topical and invigorating.

The Asian influence in CAF Production Sessions, Emerging Technologies and Technical Papers is easier for smaller research facilities in India, China and Indonesia (for instance). Universities and smaller VFX houses in Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok are able to attend, show their best and push their brands.

If you want to become involved in SIGGRAPH Asia (in HK this December), you should begin making arrangements, …now. You will not regret a moment.


#10

Thanks a lot for the info.


#11

What Paul said. Couldn’t have stated it better.

Just go! And learn for yourself of the amazing things SIGGRAPH Asia has in store for you on every level.


#12

Hi Guys…

Im planning to go…it will be my first time in hong kong, id like to know at this time of the year, whats the weather like???

can i sport some shorts? or do i have to wear for cold?

Nildo


#13

It’ll probably be between 12 - 17 degrees celsius. Not the best time to be out in a tshirt and shorts. You’d be better off in jeans, long-sleeved tshirt and a decent coat/jacket. But then again… the cold might not get to you like it does to some others. So, you decide for yourself.


#14

Hi Dewy

thx alot for your reply, it was very helpful :).

jeans it is then… (damn).

I’m going to visit this, but could you please give me advice where I can get good but not very expensive apartments nearby this performance? I never was in HK before and want to stay for my short vacation. Any verified online service? I prefer apartments instead of stay at hotel.


#16

You mean like serviced apartments? Try these… (I’m sure you’re on it already.)
