I'm applying to become a student volunteer at SIGGRAPH this year, and I'm super excited about it. For those that have attended SIGGRAPH before, do you guys have any pointers on how to get the best experience possible at the conference? What should I bring/not bring, what events should I really keep an eye out for, etc.? Also to anyone that has been a student volunteer before, what should I expect? smile.png

 

Specifically, I'm wondering whether I should apply to volunteer in areas of the conference that I'm interested in, or if I should do the opposite. To clarify, logic tells me that I that it might be a better idea to spend my volunteering hours during events that I'm not quite as interested in, because then I can go see presentations, exhibits, etc. that are more appealing to me later. On the other hand, I don't know if SIGGRAPH is instead organized such that similar events (e.g. tech talks) are spread out across the week. If that's the case, then it I wouldn't feel as disappointed if I only missed out on some of them.
