to SIGGRAPH 98, version 25.0 of the world's greatest showcase of advances in computer graphics and interactive techniques!

Step into the forever-improving future!

You and your colleagues have created a conference showcasing technology's reach into forms of expression that are more meaningful to the human experience. It's that one week, in one place, where education, excitement, exchange, and fun energize the greeting, meeting, and companionship of 30,000 of your closest friends. This is your classroom, your living room, your front porch, your wonderworld, and corner cafe.

This year, we invite you to participate in and celebrate a small pause, a brief glimpse at the exciting and colorful history that this community creates with every advance, invention, and new dream realized over 25 years of SIGGRAPH conferences.

SIGGRAPH 98 is about people. From the conference identity to the content you have brought to Orlando, your community of scientists, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, and visionaries has fulfilled and expanded the vision we sketched nearly two years ago for SIGGRAPH 98.

It's here, it's yours. Your SIGGRAPH 98 Conference Committee friends thank you for the honor of creating this container for your inspiring achievements.

Enjoy this week of wonderment in Orlando!

SIGGRAPH 98 Conference Chair
