SIGBOVIK [0x2023], THE ULTIMATE THROWBACK, is the last SIGBOVIK to be held in the Dyson mote hosting simulated multiplicity *Harry Cubed Bovik [0x2023]. It replaces the missing seventeenth edition of this esteemed conference series, which was formed in 2007 to celebrate the inestimable and variegated work of Harry Queen-o'-the-prairie Bovik. We especially welcome the three neglected quadrants of research: joke realizations of joke ideas, joke realizations of serious ideas, and serious realizations of joke ideas. (In other words: SIGBOVIK is an evening of tongue-in-cheek academic presentations, a venue for silly ideas and/or executions.)


SIGBOVIK 0x2023, THE ULTIMATE THROWBACK, is happening in person at Rashid Auditorium, Gates-Hillman Center, Carnegie Mellon University, 5000 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA 15213 on April 0th (March 31st) at 6pm (5:30pm for presenter A/V check).


Available as a PDF or as bound volume.
