LA ACM SIGGRAPH Presents:

When Real is Not Enough: The Quest to Digitally Simulate Experience

A Panel Discussion
Historically, the holy grail of the computer graphics community has been to produce highly realistic images simulating lifelike environments, objects and characters. As advances in photorealistic CG tools, realtime graphics and displays race ahead, we can begin to wonder further: How and when will digital content afford the user immersion and transport to alternate phantasms for entertainment and education? Let's turn an examining light on our energetic, unselfconsious quest for what seems to be the Holodeck. We’ll rewind and fast forward our thoughts on the topic with experts from the research and film communities.
