Daniel Palma of Paterson and Benjamin Gross of Lambertville, two juniors from NJIT's School of Art + Design, were selected to serve in the Student Volunteer Program at the Association of Computing Machinery's 2010 SIGGRAPH Conference. Admission to the Student Volunteer Program is highly competitive and provides participants access to network with industry leaders and the opportunity to attend short courses, presentations of production case studies, and technical paper sessions. Students provide a minimum of 30 hours of service during the conference, which started on July 24 and concluded on July 30 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
