Day In Review: Sunday

by on Aug.08, 2011, under Day in Review, SIGGRAPH 2011

We had a great first day at SIGGRAPH 2011! Eager attendees formed lines outside of registration before the doors opened at 8am.

The Studio opened at noon and was soon flooded with attendees. The IGDA also presented on their Global Game Jam and was full of attendees who had participated in similar events. Courses and Talks started strong with a number of great sessions.

The day’s finale was the exceedingly popular Papers Fast Forward. It was a standing room only crowd for a preview of the 100+ technical papers being presented this week. It was an entertaining program complete with dancers, infomercials, and even a gorilla.

We’re off to a great start, and if today is any indication, it looks like you should plan to get to your sessions early. The word is out about what a fantastic conference we’ve got this year!
