CUNY WIRED!: A CUNY New Media Conference
Friday, March 15, 12:30 – 7:30PM FREE Elebash Recital Hall, CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue (at 34th Street)
Sponsored by the New Media Lab, CUNY Graduate Center.
From the sciences to the arts to the humanities, CUNY faculty and students are rising to the challenge posed by new digital media–creating innovative programs and interactive courses and working in labs and research centers devoted to the production and teaching of new media. CUNY WIRED! will demonstrate some of the innovative ways in which new media is being created and used across disciplines and across the university. The one-day conference will focus on two themes: Using 3-D Visualization Across Disciplines, and Communication and New Media. With a keynote address, “Artificial Life in Virtual Reality,” by Demetri Terzopoulos and a demonstration area with interactive displays from many campuses, this event is a great opportunity to network, to share ideas and approaches, and to see projects that are helping to bring CUNY to the forefront of the digital age.
