I3D 2010 Registration Open

I3D 2010 is located just north of Washington, DC this year, during the weekend of February 19-21 (Friday through Sunday). It will be at theĀ Bethesda Hyatt Regency, which is conveniently located right on the Metro Red Line.

The early registration deadline for I3D itself is January 20th; hotel registration at the conference discount rate of $115 is available until January 19th.

Ke-Sen Huang has added a few paper links since we last mentioned his page, though the majority are still not available from authors’ pages. Somewhat surprising, given that December 14 was the camera-ready deadline, but perhaps some people are still returning back to their universities & colleges and haven’t gotten around to putting theirs up. That said, conferences like I3D are only partly about the papers and posters themselves. They also offer a unique and wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with leading and up-and-coming researchers and practitioners. It’s a fantastic feeling to be in an area for a few days where just about everyone there is working on ideas that are of interest to you. Anyone you meet knows something you don’t, and vice versa, and most people talk freely about what works and what doesn’t. Energizing and useful. Plus, they’re just fun people to be around, at least for this nerd.
