ACM SIGGRAPH Reporters for 2002

Reporters are student volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a reporter, your first step is to sign up as a student volunteer and express interest in the ACM SIGGRAPH Reporters program.

Wendy Ju

Wendy Ju is a PhD candidate at Stanford University. Last year, she helmed the Origami Desk project in the eTech exhibits. She is advancing research in the realm of interactive environments at the Center for Design Research at Stanford.

Papers; State of the Art in Hardware Shading; Interactive Geometric Computations Using Graphics;

coordinator: YON - Jan C. Hardenbergh  jch@siggraph.org

Jan is a Distinguished Engineer for TeraRecon, Inc. TeraRecon develops hardware for reconstructing 3D scans and for volume rendering. In past SIGGRAPHs he coauthored a paper on volume rendering, organized and presented courses on VRML and PEX, participated in a panel of graphics standards, and juried eTech.

Our Original Mission:

This program will select 6 students for their computer graphics background and writing ability. These students will be sponsored to attend the conference and tasked with reporting on one of the major conference venues (paper+panels will get complete coverage; sketches, the art show, the emerging technologies area, and the exhibits will also be covered). Prior to the opening of the technical program, they'll cover the courses program. The students will be expected to spend the conference week gathering information, interviews, and photographs of the conference events as credentialed reporters.
