SIGGRAPH Dailies!

Category: Siggraph
This year, a new program called SIGGRAPH Dailies! expands SIGGRAPH’s focus on new ideas in computer graphics (CG) and interactive techniques to include the craft, artistry, and behind-the-scenes/never-told stories from the production community. "Often in production, the focus is not on the latest technique. Talented CG artists typically use standard tools and techniques to get their work done--yet they create images of extraordinary power and beauty," says Bill Polson, production communities director from Pixar Animation Studios. "And oftentimes the story behind the work is the most interesting part of it. SIGGRAPH Dailies! celebrates this craft and these stories." SIGGRAPH Dailies! will be presented Tuesday, 27 July and Wednesday, 28 July from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on both days. Visit CGW.com for more.

To work out the logistics of the new program, the Dailies! team started a trial run of the program earlier in the year at Pixar Animation Studios. As a result, Pixar and Disney artists submitted a great deal of material. But Dailies! also features student work from Texas A University, scientific visualizations from Analytical Graphics Inc., and unexpected gems from around the world.

SIGGRAPH Dailies! will be presented Tuesday, 27 July and Wednesday, 28 July from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on both days. The format is similar to Technical Papers Fast Forward, with authors presenting their work and stories in a rapid-fire format. Unlike Fast Forward, SIGGRAPH Dailies! is the actual presentation and not a teaser for other talks later in the week.
