Two Middlesex County College students have been accepted as volunteers at SIGGRAPH (Special Interest Group on Computer GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques), an annual conference on computer graphics. The conference, held in Los Angles July 30 to August 3, is attended by tens of thousands of computer professionals.

Kevin Flores (Edison, left) and Eric Campos (Perth Amboy, right) will receive access to the entire conference and work 20 to 25 hours at various exposition stands and presentations.

“They will meet professionals in the field and peers from around the globe,” said Richard Thompson (center), who teaches gaming and animation at MCC. “SIGGRAPH is also home to the Electronic Theater, where many of the Oscar-nominated shorts first get noticed, where major motion picture companies discuss the making of various visual FX, and where new software is presented. There is 3D Printing, stop-motion, claymation, as well as educational papers and presentations from gaming studios.  Of particular interest is an entire hall devoted to emerging technologies. This is a terrific opportunity for our two students.”
