NEW for SIGGRAPH 2003:
 
Low-cost exhibit space for education, government, research, and other not-for-profit organizations. In Academic Exhibits, institutions can:

  • Summarize their research and education programs.
     
  • Feature several outstanding achievements.
     
  • Demonstrate innovative processes or techniques.
     
  • Recruit students, faculty members, and researchers.
     
  • Host alumni events.
This new opportunity was developed in response to requests from academic and research organizations. Space rental costs are significantly discounted below the costs for commercial exhibitors and are calculated to cover SIGGRAPH 2003's costs for space in the San Diego Convention Center.
 
Exhibitors are invited from institutions of all sizes and disciplines, including scientists, engineers, artists, designers, animators, research programmers, and students from non-profit and educational organizations. Smaller institutions are highly encouraged to participate.
 
Academic Exhibits will not compete with Emerging Technologies, which will continue to review and jury proposals for specific installations that demonstrate breakthrough applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Unlike Academic Exhibits, Emerging Technologies does not require a space-rental fee. For details, see Emerging Technologies

Like all SIGGRAPH Exhibition booths, Academic Exhibit space includes no decoration except for pipe and drape at the perimeter.
 
Additional furnishings, decorations, telephones, electrical power, audio-visual, and computer networking are available at an additional charge. Exhibitors will receive a SIGGRAPH 2003 Exhibitor Manual, which outlines all additional services and costs.
 
Space in Academic Exhibits will be assigned on a first-come basis. The Academic Exhibits Chair reserves the right to limit exhibits from individual institutions or similar institutions as necessary. Academic Exhibits will be assigned booth locations after all commercial exhibits have been placed.
 
For complete information on exhibiting, please review the SIGGRAPH 2003 Invitation to Exhibit. Services offered and responsibilities for Academic Exhibits are similar to those for traditional exhibits. The main differences will be booth-rental costs, booth sizes, and booth locations. Also, participants in Academic Exhibits do not receive conference registrations and Electronic Theater tickets.
 
For more information on participating, please contact Lou Harrison, SIGGRAPH 2003 Academic Exhibits Chair.
