It's that time of year again! Time to apply to the Student Volunteer Programme at SIGGRAPH 2014. Follow in the footsteps of fellow CGAA-ers, Jolanta and Nat, both of whom applied successfully to the scheme and had a series of SIGGRAPH adventures...
"The SIGGRAPH Conference draws thousands of attendees together from around the world, along with industry professionals who are linked by a drive to push the boundaries of advanced computer technologies.
As a Student Volunteer, students will get to peek behind the curtain and become an essential part of running this prestigious, international event. The benefits of being a Student Volunteer extend beyond the free full admission conference pass and include:
Networking with thousands of peers and industry professionals
One-on-one demo reel, resume and portfolio reviews
Student Volunteer Special Sessions with leading companies
Chances to see advance screenings of some of the best animated shorts in the world
Fun events that provide the chance to meet new friends
We need students who demonstrate leadership, enthusiasm for service, and a passion for computer graphics and interactive techniques."
