    Presidents' Forum




    This session was originally organized in response to manufacturers’ requests that the ACM sponsor a forum for discussion of issues relating to business aspects (i.e. management, marketing, finance, corporate planning, product development, etc.) of the computer graphics industry. The presidents’ Forum was a first attempt at meeting this need and was designed to gather under one roof the movers and shakers from upper management ranks of the industry and allow them to interact with each other and with the audience while addressing a provocative set of questions. The objectives of the Forum are to involve industry managers in the SIGGRAPH Conference, to offer conference participants the opportunity to meet and interact with the chief executive officers of key companies in the computer graphics industry, and to communicate corporate thinking and varied approaches to timely issues.
