New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

High Performance Graphics 2009 will be held at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.

A note about parking at the Hotel Monteleone: Parking is very limited, and as a result, very expensive. The hotel is located within walking distance of most New Orleans attractions and SIGGRAPH, and often travel is in fact more convenient by foot than by car. HPG attendees are encouraged not bring a vehicle.
