Okay - see the shout-out below from SIGGRAPH for applicants to their student volunteer programme for their August conference in Los Angeles. Students from Computer Animation Arts have a great record in terms of being accepted for the SVP, so don't be shy! It's a fab experience, and where possible, we do try and help successful applicants in terms of air travel etc.
