…And if you’ve been involved in computer graphics since then, I encourage you to become a Siggraph Pioneer!
Hi, my name is Jon Peddie, and I’ve been appointed president of the SIGGRAPH Pioneers. If you’ve been playing with pixels for the past 20 years or more, I invite you to the SIGGRAPH Pioneers’ reception in the Vancouver Convention Centre on Tuesday August 9, 2011 at 18:00, and to please consider membership in our organization.
The SIGGRAPH Pioneers are part of ACM, and if you’re an ACM member, Pioneer membership is just $5.00 on top of your ACM membership. If you’re not a member of ACM, you probably should be; and you can join ACM and become a SIGGRAPH Pioneer at the same time for just $47.00.
Being a SIGGRAPH Pioneer is fun and a great way to give back to the community! At the very least – as a Pioneer you get to attend our annual SIGGRAPH reception with a terrific speaker. If you want to do more, the Pioneers also sponsor scholarships and offer mentor tours of the SIGGRAPH activities to aspiring high school students, 16 years and older, who have demonstrated interest in art, design, computer animation, interactive technologies, architecture, modeling, math, and science.
To learn more about the SIGGRAPH Pioneers go here: http://www.siggraph.org/programs/pioneers. If you are not joining but would like to come to the reception as my guest, please let me know by reply email. I have a limited number of guest passes, so it’s “first-come, first-serve.” Once I run out of guest passes, the guest fee is $20.00. The reception is included in the Pioneers/ACM dues.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you and meeting you at the reception.
