Petree Hall D
Level: Beginning

Course 3 is open to all SIGGRAPH 2004 attendees. All other Courses require Full Conference registration.

The SIGGRAPH conference is an exciting event, but it is often an intimidating experience for first-time attendees. There are so many new terms, new concepts, and new products to understand. And all the simultaneous programs leave new attendees baffled and frustrated about how to spend their time.

This course is designed to ease newcomers into the SIGGRAPH conference experience by presenting the fundamental ideas and vocabulary at a level that can be readily understood. Far from dry facts, this course summarizes the fun and excitement that led most of us here in the first place. Attendees learn to understand, appreciate, enjoy, and learn from the rest of the SIGGRAPH 2004 events.

General knowledge of computers. A small amount of math.

Intended Audience
First-time SIGGRAPH attendees. Anyone who is new to computer graphics and interactive techniques.
