While the New Orleans downtown area is well prepared to host SIGGRAPH 2009, the surrounding communities are still in need of support four years after hurricane Katrina. SIGGRAPH 2009 has created outreach programs to benefit New Orleans schools and cultural programs, and all attendees are invited to participate.

Algiers Technology Academy
We are building an advanced computer graphics lab at the academy and inviting 50 academy students attend SIGGRAPH 2009. Here's how you can help.
