VR@50: Reception Honoring Ivan Sutherland

Please join us Monday August 13th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, for a reception in honor of Ivan Sutherland, the “Father of Computer Graphics,” on the 50th anniversary of his legendary 1968 paper “A Head-mounted Three-dimensional Display.” This reception complements the SIGGRAPH 2018 panel VR@50, which will take place earlier the same day, August 13, 10:45am – 12:15pm.

The reception program (6:30pm – 7:30pm) will include remarks by Ivan and by several of his former students (Ed Catmull, Henry Fuchs, Henri Gouraud, Alan Kay, Bob Sproull, John Warnock), and an informal discussion among these speakers and guests.

We’ll provide hors d’oeuvres, soft drinks, and a cash bar. The reception is sponsored by the University of Utah, Harvard University, NVIDIA, and Facebook Reality Labs.

We hope you are able to join us for this unique and historic celebration.
