Birds of a Feather
Informal presentations, discussions, and demonstrations for people who share interests, goals, technologies, environments, or backgrounds. Birds of a Feather events are proposed by SIGGRAPH 2010 attendees. They must be free of charge, related to computer graphics or interactive techniques, open to all SIGGRAPH 2010 attendees, and non-commercial in nature (topics specific to one commercial product or for-profit company are not allowed). Please see Exhibitor Tech Talks if you would like to present on a specific product or service.
All requests for Birds of a Feather sessions are evaluated on a case-by-case basis to make sure they conform to SIGGRAPH 2010 rules. Sessions are scheduled in rooms at the Los Angeles Convention Center and at most SIGGRAPH 2010 hotels.
To schedule a Birds of a Feather session, please see Paul Caulfield in the Conference Management Office, Room 304A, Los Angeles Convention Center.
