This scheduling problem is way over-constrained. Even if it was not SIGGRAPH week, even if we were all local, getting this many people's schedules to line up is nearly impossible. My wife and I will be staying at the Boston Marriott Copley Place and will have a car. Yet carving out a whole afternoon from that over-scheduled week seems unlikely, so you (Eric) should not put much weight on scheduling around my lack of availability. Nonetheless, for concreteness: I will be in Boston from late on the 28th until late on the 3rd. July 28-30 are largely used up by Sandbox (http://sandboxsymposium.org/), a journal editorial board meeting and perhaps CCS (http://www.aurorasoft.net/symposiums/ccs06/). I already have a commitment on the evening of the 31st and probably the 1st and 2nd. SIGGRAPH papers run all day Monday through Thursday making those days pretty busy for me.

You young whipper-snappers! I remember when it was called the "film show". In the early days (~1978), after showing a few reels from well known contributors, the organizer/projectionist would shout out "did anyone else bring something to show?"
