Conference Main
A highly interdisciplinary program that sparked animated discussions and provided thought-provoking insights from some of the top professionals in the interactive and graphics world. Panels explored the art and science of image and interface, and addressed the technical, practical, aesthetic, and social challenges that we face as we build the future into the next millennium.

After their presentations, panelists moved on to practical demonstrations in the Creative Applications Lab and informal discussions in the Session Breakout Lounge (Hall F Lobby)

All SIGGRAPH 98 Panels were simultaneously interpreted into Japanese.
