SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 exceeded all my expectations. Our RenderMan talks were overflowing, and the other speakers that I was able to see were fantastic. It was the best SIGGRAPH Asia yet!
This event brought us many interesting discussions and very relevant contacts with students and experts from various fields, such as visualization, modeling, animation and simulation.
It was a wonderful conference in a wonderful environment that not only gave me a chance to present to an excited and engaged audience, but also to provide the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge VR and special effects from a clearly talented group of people!
