CSE News -
Happy 2002! In Chinese,
it is the year of the Black Horse. For SIGGRAPH, it is the year of San
Antonio. We closed the year with a fiscal bang - final budget preparations
and approval for S2002 and getting ready to close the books for S2001.
As a reminder, if you have any outstanding expenses for S2001, we must
receive them for processing soon.
We begin 2002 with
a lot of SIG-activities. S2002 is getting lots of content and going
through the jury process (see Tom's notes). S2003 had their first meeting
to begin developing their vision for San Diego (ask someone about Pygmy
Hippos). S2004 had a Conference Chair Orientation, and the Executive
Committee held a meeting to discuss organization activities.
I would like to
encourage everyone to think of 2002 as the Year of the Volunteer. SIGGRAPH
relies on the dedication and creativity of hundreds of volunteers at
both the organizational and conference level to make a truly great professional
society and event. Go to www.siggraph.org to find out more about volunteer
job descriptions and opportunities.
RESULTS OF LAST MONTH'S SIGSURVEY:
70% of the respondents
said they would purchase SIGGRAPH merchandise if it was offered online.
