The New York Times graphics director Steve Duenes, a leader in transforming complex data into understandable graphic journalism, will be the keynote speaker for ACM's SIGGRAPH 2009, the 36th International Conference and Exhibition for Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques.
Duenes, who is on the faculty at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, manages a team of journalists who create visual information by researching, writing, designing, and programming information graphics for both the printed newspaper and www.nytimes.com. Duenes' team has received awards from the Society of Publication Designers, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Society for News Design, and the Society of Professional Journalists.
"In a growing digital world, the importance of graphics has never been higher," says Ronen Barzel, SIGGRAPH 2009 conference chair. "Steve brings a fresh perspective to the table, which is especially appropriate this year given the amazing SIGGRAPH content in regards to scientific visualization and information aesthetics." SIGGRAPH 2009 takes place August 3-7 in New Orleans.
