This year's Siggraph 2016 conference was my 10th. I've come a long way from the fellow who filled every possible second of his schedule with classes, panels, presentations and meetings. I've discovered that you have to leave time for the unexpected meeting or event. And you need time to relax and process what you have experienced.
Siggraph 2016 in Anaheim was a very satisfying and inspiring conference for me personally. This year, I decided to break with some of my conference habits and try new things. The reason for this is that the conference is so large (14,000 people this year) and deep (1,700 speakers and contributors) that you could go through the conference three times and never repeat yourself.
What follows are some highlights of my Siggraph 2016 conference experience. By the way, one of the great benefits of going to an event like this is that the experience helps clear your mind and break old thinking habits. If you make yourself open to discovery, you can come away from Siggraph deeply inspired and excited.
