Views of six volunteers

These pages present personal reports from six student volunteers who attended SIGGRAPH 2001. Hopefully, reading through their experiences will convey a sense of the conference, not only of what was presented (through their reviews of paper sessions, panels, courses, the art gallery, and more), but also a feeling for the people you might meet at SIGGRAPH (through the interviews they did with attendees, both veterans and newbies). We aim to capture what it's like to be at SIGGRAPH through the personal notes of the reporters. We hope you can get a taste of the excitement the show brings and that what you read here inspires you to join us for a future conference!

Vertex Engines and Pixel shaders come of age.


The annual conference is a chance to see friends you might only see at SIGGRAPH.
