Jon Peddie Research Luncheon at SIGGRAPH

jonpeddieJon Peddie Research will be attending SIGGRAPH and hosting a luncheon for press and analysts about how changes in graphics hardware and software is effecting the scientific research community.

If you can’t make it, don’t worry.  VizWorld will have staff attending the event, with a full write-up posted afterwards.
