Academic Exhibits

In this low-cost exhibit space for education, government, research, and other not-for-profit organizations, institutions can:

  • Summarize their research and education programs
  • Feature several outstanding achievements
  • Demonstrate innovative processes or techniques
  • Recruit students, faculty members, and researchers
  • Host alumni events
Space rental costs are significantly discounted below the costs for commercial exhibitors and are calculated to cover SIGGRAPH 2007's costs.

Exhibitors are invited from institutions of all sizes and disciplines, including scientists, engineers, artists, designers, animators, research programmers, and students from non-profit and educational organizations. Smaller institutions are highly encouraged to participate.

Academic Exhibits do not compete with Emerging Technologies, which will continue to review and jury proposals for specific installations that demonstrate breakthrough applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Unlike Academic Exhibits, Emerging Technologies does not require a space-rental fee. For details, see Emerging Technologies.
