There is a lot of cool stuff happening at Siggraph this year for game developers. The Advances in Real-Time Rendering course has become a must attend for graphics developers at the leading edge. Another key course is Open Problems in Real-Time Graphics which talks about the hard problems in computer graphics and how to solve them.
Real-Time Live is a festival of real-time excellence. Come see best of the best compete for the prestigious Best Real-Time Graphics and Interactivity Award.
NVIDIA is a proud sponsor of the VR Village. We also have a huge booth packed with VR and cutting edge rendering technology. On top of that we have 100's of sessions to attend in our booth Theater and our Best of GTC tracks.
