Special Interest Groups & Birds of a Feather

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are for attendees who think and work in similar technologies and environments. Special Interest Groups are open to all attendees. They are usually informal. At some, general subjects are discussed; others convene around topics related to specific product vendors. To schedule a SIG for SIGGRAPH 98, call: +1.312.321.6830 or send email to sigs@siggraph.org to request a sign-up form.

Birds of a Feather are impromptu gatherings.They can be scheduled at any time, to discuss any subject.
