ACCAD 2018 Open House
Friday, April 6, 2018
Once each year the general public is invited to discover ACCAD, one of the first computer graphics Centers in the world. Guests are encouraged to explore the Center at their own pace, observe, ask questions and physically interact with demos that typically include: digital media performances, educational games, 3D animated films, virtual worlds, 3D tracking devices, motion capture technology and more.
Visitors meet a dedicated community of Graduate Students, Faculty and Staff from various core disciplines across campus. ACCAD is known for specializing in synergistic research and relationships. Our highly creative community determines the evolving agenda each year, but "tour guides" could include collaborators from: Dance, Design, Computer Science, Music, Art, Education, Anatomy and Architecture.
ACCAD's research often joins faculty from disparate areas. Likewise, ACCAD's course offerings attract multi-disciplinary graduate students - seeking to incorporate digital animation into their thesis or dissertation work. ACCAD provides space for new knowledge generation through intense study, discussion and application. The Open House offers a unique opportunity to showcase an ever changing landscape of new projects in a lively and engaging event. All are welcome to attend.
