Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering are increasingly being related on the conceptual, methodological, and practical dimensions. T. Grandon Gill’s book (Informing Business: Research and Education on a Rugged Landscape) shows the strong and important relationships between Complexity and Informing Science (specifically academic informing), and the potentiality of these relationships in supporting the integration of academic activities: Research, Education, and Consulting or real Life Problem Solving.
Education (cognitive development) and training (performance in a specific skill) are different but highly related notions. They have common means to achieve their objectives as it is the case of, for example, teaching, learning and e-learning. Informatics is supporting both of them with an increasing frequency and effectiveness in more and more activities and domains. The objective of ICETI 2014 is to bring together researchers, professionals and practitioners from the three areas so they can share their knowledge and experiences in an multi- and inter-disciplinary intellectual climate.
Design and modeling are concepts and activities common to several disciplines in Science, Education, and Technology. Consequently, design and modeling provide effective concepts, theories, methodologies, and tools for intra- and inter-disciplinary communications. The World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics: WMSCI might provide synergic relationships with a conference on Design and Modeling, and vice versa.
Relationships between Education/Training and Information/Communication Technologies (ICT) are increasing accelerating -- sometimes in unexpected ways -- with original ideas, innovative tools, methodologies and synergies. Accordingly, the main purpose of EISTA 2013 is to bring together researchers and practitioners from both areas, to support the bridging process between education/training and ICT communities.
The ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee is sponsoring the SpaceTime juried Student Poster Competition & and Online Exhibition 2013 again this year. The competition provides an excellent opportunity for students currently attending school in either a traditional academic setting or a home school at either the High School/Secondary or College/University levels and working in computer based media to exhibit their creative work nationally and internationally.
If you weren’t able to attend SIGGRAPH 2012 or want a refresher before you head to Anaheim for SIGGRAPH 2013, visit Encore. ACM SIGGRAPH members enjoy free access to Encore video presentations. These conference presentations can be downloaded or streamed from the Digital Library. Check out this great content here.
It’s time to register your Birds of a Feather session. A BOF session must be free of charge, related to computer graphics or interactive techniques, open to all SIGGRAPH 2013 attendees, and non-commercial in nature (topics specific to one commercial product or for-profit company are not allowed).
Are you taking advantage of all the content provided to ACM SIGGRAPH members? One of the most valuable member benefits you have is access to a plethora of great content, such as:
YouTube: SIGGRAPH Asia featured speaker Karlheinz Brandenburg.
Digital Library: All ACM SIGGRAPH members have access to the SIGGRAPH portion of the content in the ACM Digital Library (including the proceedings of the SIGGRAPH annual conferences). All SIGGRAPH material is available in PDF form.
SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 returns to Hong Kong, the cosmopolitan city where East meets West for the second time this November. This year’s conference program line-up includes the Art Gallery, Computer Animation Festival, Courses, Emerging Technologies, Posters, Symposium on Mobile Graphics and Interactive Applications, Technical Briefs, and Technical Papers. The Call for Submissions for all programs will be live in early March. Join our mailing list to get latest updates about the conference or visit the SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 website.
