Professional Development and Education
Does everyone come to you for advice? We are looking for people who are willing to share the secrets of their success.
Proposals to this theme should focus on topics of interest to attendees who are exploring career options, currently working, or hoping to advance in some area of computer graphics or interactive techniques. For example: sessions focused on specific professional challenges, business practices, emerging workplace issues, or career transformation. We encourage submissions for interactive sessions that provide opportunities to network.
Topics might include:
- Project management
- Changing careers
- Grant writing and funding opportunities
- Managing teams
- Stress management
- Presentation and public speaking
Submissions will be evaluated based on ability to provide valuable professional-development opportunities to members of the SIGGRAPH community, from aspiring students to seasoned professionals. These sessions will be added to the schedule of curated educational offerings at SIGGRAPH 2008 and will be complemented by events created by the SIGGRAPH Education Committee.
Our goal is to make SIGGRAPH 2008 a great place for attendees to find inspiration for their professional lives, and to connect people with the resources they need to create fulfilling futures.
