During the conference, ACM SIGGRAPH presents additional events of interest to SIGGRAPH 2012 attendees:
Training Seminar Sponsored by the
SIGGRAPH Education Committee and Unity 3D
SUNDAY, 5 AUGUST | 10 am - 6 pm | JW Marriott Los Angeles
This in-depth overview of the award-winning Unity platform for creating games and 2D and 3D applications for the desktop, the web, mobile devices, and consoles is designed for educators at the high school level and above. Unity evangelists show educators how to weave rich digital media experiences into technical, art, software development, and game-development courses. At the end of the day, attendees will understand the process required to create a 3D and 2D game from start to a final cross-platform version for iOS, Android, Facebook, and stand-alone applications. And they will return to their classrooms with practical ideas on how to use computer graphics and interactive 3D techniques as instructional tools.
If you are interested in participating, please send your name, address, email address, and phone number to Marc J. Barr, SIGGRAPH Education Committee Chair.
