Birds of a Feather

Sunday - Thursday, 5-9 August

Presentations, discussions, and demonstrations for people who share interests, goals, technologies, environments, or backgrounds.

Birds of a Feather events are proposed by SIGGRAPH 2007 attendees. They must be free of charge, related to computer graphics or interactive techniques, open to all SIGGRAPH 2007 attendees, and non-commercial in nature (topics specific to one commercial product or company are discouraged). All requests for Birds of a Feather sessions are evaluated on a case-by-case basis to make sure they conform to SIGGRAPH 2007 rules. Sessions are scheduled in rooms at the San Diego Convention Center and at most SIGGRAPH 2007 hotels.

Advance requests for Birds of a Feather sessions are no longer being accepted. Please be sure to check the Birds of a Feather kiosk sign in the San Diego Convention Center for the complete list of Birds of a Feather sessions.
