Kevin Beason, Chris Baker, Yoshihito Yagi, Lei, Ji

Location: 499 Dirac Science Library
Time: 2:00-3:00pm Thursday, September 2nd, 2004

Come and listen to short descriptions of the latest computer graphics and interactive techniques research presented at this year's SIGGRAPH conference, presented by students who went there! "Molecular interiors, galactic visions, tomorrow's visual effects. Responsive machines, extra-human intelligence, alternative realities. Code, concepts, mathematics, theories, applications."

SIGGRAPH is a computer graphics and interactive techniques conference. By far the largest conference hosted by the ACM, SIGGRAPH is expected to draw over 25,000 attendees this year.

Topics of presentation include papers, courses, exhibition, and more.
