SIGGRAPH Vancouver

SIGGRAPH (short for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques) is an annual conference on computer graphics convened by the ACM SIGGRAPH organization.  This is the first year the conference has been hosted outside of the U.S. at the Vancouver Convention Centre. 

There is a ton of SketchBook activity at this year's SIGGRAPH!

In addition to SketchBook at the Autodesk booth (#429), SketchBook is also being featured at the Wacom booth (#825) and at the NVIDIA booth (#453, 603 & 655).  Jay Shuster presented on Tuesday and Wednesday to packed crowds at the Autodesk Stage.  Our own Kyle Runciman is presenting at Wacom and NVIDIA's main stages tomorrow.

SketchBook is also the featured tool for the Sketch Battle (#453) being held every hour where 6 artists compete in a tournament-style on Wacom Cintiq drawing stations!

The Autodesk booth is also showing the collection of artwork submitted from the Sketch.Contribute.Gloat call-for-submissions, which is also being featured on the AREA.
