Hal Newnan

I am working on my Associates in Graphic Communication Arts at Macomb Community College, South Campus, Warren, MI, USA. I expect to graduate this December with straight A's. And, at MCC I am inspired by the mentoring of Brian Sauriol who has taught me much more than, but also including: Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, InDesign, and Maya. Next semester I expect to take six more hours of Maya in addition to Advanced Quark XPress, Digital Photography, and traditional Rendering. My Near East and North African Studies bachelor's is from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor from which I graduated with "Distinction." I lived in Cairo, Egypt for two years while studying at the American University. I love Science Fiction. And Borders Books thought well enough of me to make me a Corporate Sales Manager.

coordinator: YON - Jan C. Hardenbergh

Jan is a Graphics Architect for Revit Technology Corporation where he develops architectural rendering and visualization software. In past SIGGRAPHs he coauthored a paper on volume rendering, organized and presented courses on VRML and PEX, participated in a panel of graphics standards, and juried eTech.

Our Original Mission:

This program will select 6 students for their computer graphics background and writing ability. These students will be sponsored to attend the conference and tasked with reporting on one of the major conference venues (paper+panels will get complete coverage; sketches, the art show, the emerging technologies area, and the exhibits will also be covered). Prior to the opening of the technical program, they'll cover the courses program. The students will be expected to spend the conference week gathering information, interviews, and photographs of the conference events as credentialed reporters.
