I'm off to SIGGRAPH 05 in Los Angeles first thing tomorrow morning. 18h flight, phew. But it will definitely be worth it; lots and lots of interesting people, presentations, papers and courses this year, especially with focus or utilizing GPUs which is what I'm most interested in.
Hopefully I'll also meet up with some of our contacts at ATI, Nvidia and Microsoft that we have worked with for Battlefield 2 and upcoming products for a beer or three :)
Will try to write up a good summary of the presentations for the blog when I get back, need to do it anyway to spread the information inside the company (that are paying for the trip) so shouldn't be a problem.
