Welcome to the "not-just-for-Educators Program."

Education and research are twin strands that bind many of the activities at the annual SIGGRAPH conference.

The Educators Program has a long and successful history in promoting ideas and discussion across the arts and sciences of computer graphics, and this interdisciplinary approach is a growing trend. Commercial uses in design, animation, effects, games, data analysis, and simulation make computer graphics a viable and popular academic discipline, which has potential in research, technique, and creativity.

Academia has responded quickly to changes in commercial uses of technology to provide students with the knowledge and survival skills they need to succeed in this volatile industry. As educators, we must anticipate developments and teach our students to become creative leaders in the field.

Building on a rich tradition, this year's Educators Program will present a wide range of planned or existing uses of computer graphics and interactive techniques in all educational areas and academic levels.

Special consideration will be given to new and developing topics that rely on computer graphics and interactive techniques to present, understand, or analyze content. Examples might include data mining, bio-informatics, or educational games and simulation. Hypothetical ideas are welcome in this context.

We also seek ideas that encourage continuity between academic levels (K-12 links to college programs, for example) and collaborations between academic disciplines, arts and sciences, or multi-cultural initiatives, especially ones that provide solid resources for your colleagues.

As computer graphics grows up, it plays a significant role in how we look at the world, how we understand ideas and influence what we see. Your contribution is key to our future, and we welcome hearing from you. Not ready for prime time? Not a problem! Send in your tentative ideas, and we will see if we can match you up with like-minded visionaries in the 2004 "not-just-for-Educators Program."
