How to Join the Revolution in Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques

(Chicago, IL) - ACM SIGGRAPH announces that SIGGRAPH 2006, the 33rd International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, 30 July - 3 August at the Boston Convention & Exposition Center in Boston, Massachusetts, is inviting the best and the brightest to join the revolutionary ranks as contributors to SIGGRAPH 2006 programs.

"It is indeed fitting that the best and the brightest in computer graphics and interactive techniques converge on this historic and monumental city for SIGGRAPH 2006," says John C. Finnegan, SIGGRAPH 2006 Conference Chair from Purdue University. "We encourage every artist, researcher, scientist, animator, and technology professional to join in on this revolutionary conference. Nowhere else in the world can you find the collaboration between art, science, and technology. We encourage involvement no matter the level of experience - from students to senior researchers. Everyone makes a difference at a SIGGRAPH conference."
