O melhor lugar do mundo é aqui e agora.
(The best place in the world is here and now.)
Get the most out of your SIGGRAPH experience in 2005!
"Aqui & Agora" (1977)
Our primary goal in 2005 is to enhance the conference's multi-cultural flavor,
by encouraging the international community to attend and participate in all
sessions, activities, and events at SIGGRAPH 2005.
In addition to the help and support traditionally offered to SIGGRAPH international
attendees, (such as the English Review Service and volunteer assistance),
SIGGRAPH 2005 will offer NEW services and activities to facilitate the participation
of those who come from all over the world to be part of the SIGGRAPH experience!
- Wouldn't it be useful to learn how to organize your time and plan your
schedule in order to get the most out of SIGGRAPH 2005 (especially if you are a
- Wouldn't it be nice to visit the Art Gallery and Emerging Technologies
guided by someone who speaks YOUR language and can explain details of the works being
NEW for SIGGRAPH 2005!
In order to fulfill the needs and dreams of international attendees and participants,
these NEW services will be offered for SIGGRAPH 2005:
In addition to those new services, we will continue to provide all the other
services offered in previous years:
- A group of leading artists and scientists from the SIGGRAPH community will
help international attendees get the best of SIGGRAPH 2005! They will teach you
how to make sense of the intense conference schedule, talk about the strategies
they apply to select the events and performances they wish to attend, and explain how they
manage to get to all these events in time! Visit the International Center
to learn it all!
- Guided tours in different languages: go to the International Center,
choose a language, and enroll in one of the guided tours of the Art Gallery and
Emerging Technologies! Two-hour tours (in three different languages) will depart
daily from the International Center. Guided-tour time schedules will be available
on the SIGGRAPH 2005 web site and in the Program & Buyer's Guide.
We welcome any questions you might have! Contact the
International Resources Chair
if you need more information.
- English Review Service:
Helping to improve the writing of international submissions to the various
SIGGRAPH 2005 programs and events. A team of native English-speaking volunteers
will read your proposed contribution before you officially submit it and provide
suggestions to improve the legibility of the text in English. (Note: no guarantee
of turn around time is made concerning the English Review service. The earlier
you submit your material for review, the higher the likelihood it will get done
before your program deadline.) Volunteers are needed to read international submissions
and offer suggestions for enhancing the text (not content). If your first language is
English and you would be willing to review submissions, please contact the
International Resources Chair directly.
- Volunteers will assist you at the International Center! Members of the
International Resources Committee will answer questions from attendees, lend
assistance to those who may wish to host meetings or informal gatherings for
attendees from their countries or regions, and provide informal translation
