Despite our roots in education technology news, projects, and tools, Cemetech's foci have broadened as our members' interests have broadened. In recent years, Cemetech has branched out to cover general technology. Most recently, our Technology News Editor, Alex, attended both the GPU Technology Conference 2016 and CES 2016 to explore photography, VR, and consumer electronics advances in the industry and to share his experiences with you. In the same vein, Thomas "elfprince13" Dickerson and Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell will be heading to Anaheim, CA today to cover SIGGRAPH 2016.

SIGGRAPH is a unique academic conference that has shifted to be a hybrid consumer expo and pure research venue. In their own words, "The annual SIGGRAPH conference is a five-day interdisciplinary educational experience in the latest computer graphics and interactive techniques, including a three-day commercial exhibition that attracts hundreds of exhibitors from around the world. [...] Juried and curated content includes outstanding achievements in time-based art, scientific visualization, visual effects, real-time graphics, and narrative shorts." We'll be curious to see the academic advances relevant to our own work and interests, as well as to explore the latest in rendering, graphics, and virtual reality. Keep your eye on Cemetech (and the Cemetech Facebook page and Cemetech Twitter account for the latest news and updates from SIGGRAPH 2016.

This is really cool. I'm incredibly excited to see what stuff you guys discover and write about.
Hope you guys will take lots of pictures and notes and share with us what you can! Smile
Dang, that's an especially expensive conference/exhibition to attend.

Thanks for your enthusiasm, guys! It is indeed expensive if you're neither a student nor a member of the media. We're in the Media Briefing this morning, and we're excited about everything we'll be able to bring you from the conference. We're particularly disappointed that our Tech News editor, Alex, won't be attending with us.
Well, it's still an honor to have a Cemetech presence there.
Poor financial planning on my part mostly, then work squished any hope of taking a day off until I get a partner for my route. Sad

Have fun! Also, procrastination prevented me from
Sending a small cut out of myself to join in the festivities.
