Filed under SIGGRAPH

I just registered for SIGGRAPH 2007. This year it is August 5-9 in San Diego. Online registration is here. Register by June 29th for the cheapest rates.

This will be my 11th SIGGRAPH! If you have any interest in computer graphics...you have to see SIGGRAPH.

I decided to try staying in a hostel (my first). I have a private room for $60/night just 4 blocks from the convention center.

Some people were talking about driving down. It is 500 miles from San Francisco to San Diego. I got my airline tickets for $150, which is about what I would pay in gas to drive to San Diego and back. When you consider driving down will take about 8 hours versus a 1.5 hour plane trip...it is an easy decision.

I got the Full Conference ticket for $800. I am going to the Electronic Theater on Monday night.

TIP: Always do the "Credential Mailing" option ($15)...it is no fun to wait in block long lines with everybody else trying to get your badge so you can go to your first class. Let the badge come to you!

Let me know if you are going so we can meet up.

Looks like SIGGRAPH 2008 is going to be in Los Angeles and SIGGRAPH 2009 will be in New Orleans.

Hey David,

It's not too late to cancel your airline reservation and drive. It's a long trip though well worth it. Rent a convertible! Pacific Coast Highway is cool. First, stop is Monterey and Pebble Beach, then down the road is Santa Barbara. Then there is L.A. On the way back, take I-5 and take a side trip to the Sierras.


I know from past experience that I will be worn out once I'm done...I'll be ready to come home and rest. Sounds like a fun trip...when SIGGRAPH is not involved.

I'm driving PCH to LA this weekend for the first time. I'll post pics of the trip next week.

Cindy Chiu:

Does anyone know when will Siggraph 2009 be held in New Orlean?

Let me guess Cindy...you are trying to get the trivia question for July's SIGGRAPHITTI newsletter.

I have no idea what the dates are for New Orleans.
