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.
