As eager conference goes milled into frigid lobby of the Los Angeles convention center, the 2004 SIGGRAPH Annual conference was off to a enthusastic start. Unlike years past, when conference ramped up slowly for the first couple days, this year's convention offered its first academic sketches starting at 8:30 am on the very first day. Exhibits in Emerging Technologies, the Art Gallery, and the Animation Theatre kicked off just after lunch.
Near real-time coverage of the SIGGRAPH conference will be found here over the next few days. In the meantime, tune into the SIGGRAPH Wiki to see what is in store. Also, please find time to peruse the interviews of various personalities from SIGGRAPH and this year's conference.
