Contribute to, Volunteer for SIGGRAPH 2008

Los Angeles - You are invited to contribute to or volunteer for SIGGRAPH 2008, the 35th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, to be held Monday through Friday, 11 through 15 August 2008 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.   
General Submission Deadline: 30 January 2008   
New for SIGGRAPH 2008:    
SIGGRAPH 2008 is evolving along with the computer graphics and interactive techniques community. It is dissolving the borders between some traditional SIGGRAPH programs (Art Gallery, Courses, Educators, Emerging Technologies, Panels, Posters, The Studio, and Sketches) to create a more fluid, interdisciplinary conference. And it is offering presenters more flexible options for sharing their work. SIGGRAPH is also upgrading the value of the Computer Animation Festival.
