For those of you who were not able to attend the Forum, here are some photos to give you an idea of the activities and attendance at this year's event. For those of you who were there, maybe you'll find yourself in some of the photos.

The Fairmont Hotel in downtown San Jose was the place.
You knew you were there when you saw this...
There was food and entertainment...
while attendees decided which sessions to attend.
Kirk Loevner welcomed the attendees to the Forum in the opening session.
Forest Baskett and Joe DiNucci, among others, gave keynote talks.
It got pretty crowded in the Imperial Ballroom from time to time.
Some talks were in smaller rooms, while others took place in the Imperial Ballroom.
The labs were almost always full.
Office hours were very popular; time-slots filled up quickly (we'll remember that next year).
Some people came in groups to get questions answered, while others came for that one-on-one help.
Mostly to eat, of course. And there was plenty of food to digest at lunch while you were digesting the content of the sessions you just attended.
The campus visit provided opportunities to hang out (and eat more food)...
see the divisional displays, participate in some magical goings-on...
get "scanned," and maybe even buy an SGI T-shirt or two.
We don't have pictures of the activities in the labs after hours. However, many people came to play games and surf the Internet until Midnight each night.
Maybe that explains the bags under our eyes...
