Registration Open for SIGGRAPH 2017

If you're one of those people who puts off registration and hotel reservations until the last minute, now is the time to turn over a new leaf. Register for SIGGRAPH 2017 before June 9 and you'll save as much as $400. While you're at it, why not secure your hotel room and lock in a low price, a cushy bed and a short walk to the conference center each morning. Your future self will thank you.
