WELCOME TO SIGGRAPH
Greetings! We invite you to join us at SIGGRAPH 93, the 20th Annual
International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, in
Anaheim, California, 1 to 6 August 1993. At SIGGRAPH 93 we will celebrate
where we have been and where we are going in an exciting environment that
will include art, science, engineering, products, education, and discussion.
People from all over the world and from varied academic and professional
fields will gather to learn about the latest ideas and innovations in
computer graphics. This energetic mix of people, ideas, and technology
always sparks fresh, new industry directions and gives rise to SIGGRAPH 93's
conference theme: The Eye of Technology. SIGGRAPH again breaks new ground
at this year's conference. In addition to technical papers, courses, panel
discussions, tomorrow's realities, SIGKids, the electronic theater, and the
exhibition, several exciting programs will premiere. Multimedia 93 is the
Association for Computing Machinery's first international conference on
multimedia. This new conference, running 4 to 6 August, will be co-located
with SIGGRAPH 93. Also at SIGGRAPH for the first time are designing
technology, machine culture, and a general session-Behind the Scenes:
Computer Graphics in Film. Join us! We hope that you will be one of the
more than 30,000 people we expect to attend SIGGRAPH 93. If you have an eye
on the future, be a part of the vision at SIGGRAPH 93 in Anaheim.

be sure to stop and see multimedia products and services on the exhibit
Machine culture: The virtual frontier
SIGGRAPH 93 features the debut of a curated, interactive art exhibit that
brings you to the edge of new interactive and virtual media art. Machine
culture artists present their work in 3D forms that poignantly address the
theme of technology in culture.
SIGGRAPH's inaugural designing technology program features works that
explore the role of design in the development of technology. The exhibit
displays a product, then follows the collaborative process between designer
and engineer to demonstrate improved product functionality.
A special blockbuster event is being offered for all registered attendeesÑ
Behind the Scenes: Computer Graphics in Film. See and hear the experts who
create the spectacular visual effects that have reshaped Hollywood. Learn
their secrets and discover how the images we see on the screen are created.
Important schedule changes
Registration will be open on Saturday from 6:00 pm-10:00 pm and on Sunday
beginning at 7:30 am to accommodate schedule changes in the technical -
program. Courses run Sunday-Thursday, and SIGGRAPH papers/panels run

address on Wednesday morning.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Whether you are a novice or an expert, SIGGRAPH is a once-a-year opportunity
to immerse yourself in new technology, art, animation, virtual reality,
multimedia, film video, scientific visualization, engineering, and more. For
example, the exhibit floor offers everyone a chance to learn about the

Behind the Scenes: Computer Graphics in Film
In an exciting event for all attendees, SIGGRAPH 93 brings together some of
the top creators of computer graphics in films for an inside look at how the
images that have changed Hollywood are made. They will share secrets and
describe how special effects are developed for movies such as "Terminator 2"
Presenters will talk about the artistry of creating computer graphics for
film, discuss and show film from recent projects, and show live computer
demonstrations of animation, morphing, and other visual effects.
You'll have a great time and go away with a new appreciation for the
thousands of hours required to create a few exciting minutes of computer
graphics on film.

Special Interest Groups and Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions
Special interest groups and birds-of-a-feather sessions both bring like
minds together. They are a great way for people to meet, exchange ideas, and
share information on a wide variety of computer graphics interests. SIGGRAPH
93 provides meeting space for both types of groups.
Special interest groups are organized in advance of the conference, and the
topics, times, and locations of these meetings are posted in the
registration area, if requested. Meetings scheduled by 7 June 1993 are
listed in the Final Program, if requested.
Birds-of-a-feather sessions are planned on site. During SIGGRAPH 93, anyone
can organize one of these impromptu meetings simply by using the sign-up
board in the registration area.
