  4. This presentation demonstrates BURP, an open source software that, by using the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) framework, enables the distributed rendering of 3D graphics over the Internet using a network of volunteer computers. While covering the basics of the technology, the presenters will discuss the motivation and key topics in making the technology and why they believe in making the technology available to as many people as possible. Topics covered include employing Creative Commons licensing and an entirely bottom-up, user-centric, job submission model in a volunteer computing project. The presenters will talk about the future of BURP and discuss the ongoing development of the Renderfarm.fi publicly distributed rendering service, which aims to make publicly distributed rendering as accessible as possible.

    Speakers: Julius Tuomisto, Janus Bager Kristensen
    Target audience: Graphicians, animators, programmers, creative folks

  5. This session presents an insight into the process of drafting and creating a modern demo. The emphasis, however, is not on technical issues such programming and modelling, but rather on aesthetics and concepts such as music/visual fusion, the principles of transitions and use of typography. The presentation covers current demoscene trends, dos and don'ts and ways to kill writer's block. It is aimed at the broad audience of Assembly: the beginners as well as the seasoned producers.

    Speakers: Konstantinos Pataridis
    Target audience: Demosceners, producers, creative folks
