In-Person Reception and Keynote
Although HPG was a virtual conference in 2022, we hosted an in-person buffet dinner for attendees on the evening of Sunday 7th of August 2022 (the day before SIGGRAPH started).
The reception began in the Concourse of Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre at 5pm local time — there were signs directing attendees to the reception area. We had buffet-style Syrian cuisine.
The reception ended and the keynote session began at 7pm local time; online/in-person registration remained open until the keynote session began. The keynote session ended at 8:30pm local time.
Masks were recommended in the keynote hall; we provided KN95 masks.
We requested that attendees got tested for COVID-19 prior to attending the event, and quarantined if they tested positive.
