SIGGRAPH 2002: Keynotes


    Identity and Control on the Net

    Can you take it with you? As the online world becomes ubiquitous, people and things need a way to establish their identity worldwide. But who sets the standards, and who controls the data? Esther Dyson, chairman of EDventure Holdings and former chairman of ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) considers the implications in a wide-ranging discussion that invites audience participation.

    Immediately before the keynote address, ACM SIGGRAPH presents the Significant New Researcher Award to Steven Gortler, Harvard University; Computer Graphics Achievement Award to David Kirk, NVIDIA Corporation; and the Outstanding Service Award for extraordinary service to ACM SIGGRAPH by a volunteer to Bertram Herzog, Fraunhofer Center for Research in Computer Graphics in Providence, Rhode Island.
