Media Registration

The deadline for advance media registration has passed. You must register in the Media Headquarters Office, Room 151 A/B of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Be sure to bring all of your supporting documentation (described below) with you to the Boston Convention Center, and your information will be reviewed. If you are approved for SIGGRAPH 2006 media registration, you will receive a media badge. You must have a photo ID to pick-up your media badge in person at the Media Headquarters Office, Room 151 A/B of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, beginning Saturday, 29 July.

A separate credential for use of cameras or video equipment must be obtained by completing the Audio-Visual Agreement when you pick-up your media badge on-site.

When you apply for media registration, you will be asked to select the type of organization that you will be representing at SIGGRAPH 2006. You must provide the supporting documentation for that type of organization before your request for media registration will be approved. Those requesting media registration must be currently employed by a publication or news organization. Account representatives, sales executives, book authors, and engineers do not meet the criteria for media registration.
