294SIGGRAPH 2003 Reminder
- Jul 8, 2003Tomorrow (Wednesday, July 9th) is the last day for advanced (online)
registration for SIGGRAPH 2003.
Siggraph is the world's premiere conference on computer graphics and
interactive techniques. The fulldome community has organized two events for
this year's conference. Course #25 entitled "Computer Graphics for
Large-Scale Immersive Theaters" features a morning session in the Reuben H.
Fleet Science Center's 23 meter IMAX Dome theater where leading fulldome
producers will screen their works on a dual-projector ElectricSky II system.
The course's afternoon session at the San Diego Convention Center will
outline the basics of fulldome production. For more information see:
If you don't want to pay the course fees (registration also entitles you to
attend all courses, panels, papers, Electronic Theater, etc.) which are $850
for members, $1,000 for non-members and $500 for students, then you can
still attend the "Siggraph 2003 Fulldome Video Showcase" on Sunday evening,
July 27th at 9pm at the Fleet. We're editing together an hour of our best
material for screening during the art reception. You'll still need a
SIGGRAPH badge to get in, but the Exhibits Plus registration is only $75.
