Courses

SIGGRAPH 2017 Courses are instructional sessions in which attendees learn new concepts and skills. They give attendees an in­-depth overview of the state of­ the ­art in a particular area or provide a comprehensive overview of an emerging topic that is of interest to the SIGGRAPH audience. They are presented in short (1.5 hours), medium (3.25 hours), or all-day formats and often include elements of interactive demonstration, performance, or other imaginative approaches to teaching.

The spectrum of Courses ranges from an introduction to the foundations of computer graphics and interactive techniques to advanced instruction on current and future technologies.
