we finally have an answer for the question that has been on everyone’s lips: is SyysGraph going to be organized this year?
The answer is: YES!
The Finnish graphics scene’s most important annual event will be held on Monday 27th of October from 6pm onwards at LeBonk (http://lebonk.fi/eng/, Yrjönkatu 24)!
This year we have made several changes to the format. First of all, the event is held in the evening in order to combine the presentations and the social part of SyysGraph under a single roof. Also, instead of having a number of short-format presentations, we have four invited speakers who’ll be giving more in-depth 30-minute talks. All presentations will be held in English.
Program for the night:
1800 - Doors open
1815 - Opening remarks
1830 - Tuula Leinonen (Partner, Studio A)
1915 - Daniele Panozzo (Senior Researcher, ETH Zürich)
2000 - Perttu Hämäläinen (Assistant Professor, Aalto University)
2045 - Hao Chen (Graphics Engineering Lead, Bungie)
2130 - Freeform mingling ('till late!)
This year’s event will be *free* (although LeBonk expects us to consume respectable amounts of beer :)). We have seating for 150 people, so advance registration is absolutely required.
The event is organized by ACM SIGGRAPH Helsinki in collaboration with our sponsors: Umbra Software, Remedy Entertainment, RightWare, FAKE, and Aalto University.
