PAST EVENT

For our second year in a row, join us for an informal meetup during SIGGRAPH 2020. SIGGRAPH, the Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques. SIGGRAPH is attended annually by tens of thousands of computer professionals, is full of VR & AR talks and demos, and was to take place in Washington, DC. Due to Covid-19 this year it is an online virtual conference (see below for tickets). Thanks to the magic of social VR, join us next to the AltspaceVR Tour Bus on the DC national mall, at night, surrounded by illuminated Jefferson, Lincoln & Washington memorials & monument. As a special treat, anyone can watch an hour-long Whirlwind Introduction to Computer Graphics video prepared by SIGGRAPH 2020 speaker Michael Bailey, PhD, Professor of Computer Science at Oregon State University.
