ACM SIGGRAPH News
From the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques.
Have you wanted to contribute to the Computer Animation Festival, but didn't have enough time to do a full short film? SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 has just issued a special call for Mascot Animations: make a short animation featuring our Mascot character and your work could be part of the titles for the SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 Festival!
The goal of the program is to give a group of local area high school students a full week's exposure to the best of computer graphics and interactive techniques. Pioneer mentors work with one or two students before, during, and after the conference. The result means a true learning experience for both pioneers and students.
Are you eager to present your ideas and share your knowledge with thousands of attendees?
