Convention Center Meeting Rooms

The Studio

Companies are invited to showcase their products in the The Studio, where attendees have hands-on access to a broad array of software and hardware throughout SIGGRAPH 2009.

This is a free opportunity. All of the technology in the The Studio, from extremely high tech to cleverly low tech, is donated.

More Information About The Studio

Student Volunteers

Student Volunteers are selected in a competitive process from many of the world's leading universities. They are highly visible at the conference, where they provide directions and information, translate for attendees whose first language is not English, and help with crowd control. Many of the SIGGRAPH community's academic and industrial leaders began their careers as Student Volunteers.

Raffle

Student Volunteers who demonstrate an excellent work ethic and prove they are both dependable and helpful are entered in a raffle at the close of the conference. This raffle, made possible through prize donations from companies in the computer graphics and interactive techniques industry, is a great opportunity to communicate with the next generation of influencers in this dynamic industry. Donor names will be printed on the donation banners in the lobby of the convention center and on the donor sign posted outside the Student Volunteer office.

Hats

Student Volunteer baseball-style hats display the SIGGRAPH 2009 logo and location on the front. A sponsor logo can appear on the back, side, and/or bill of the hats. These hats provide excellent conference-wide visibility, and they become unique souvenirs that Student Volunteers wear long after they return to their campuses. The hat sponsor's name will be printed on the donation banners in the lobby of the convention center and on the donor sign posted outside the Student Volunteer office.

Speaking Opportunities

In recent years, the Student Volunteers Committee has invited industry professionals to give a few hours of their time during the conference to meet and talk with Student Volunteers. Through these talks and informal conversations, Student Volunteers return to their universities with a deeper understanding of how to focus their learning to achieve their career goals.

If you are interested in a speaking opportunity, please contact the Student Volunteers program.
