C+I Announcements

C+I is co-sponsoring the CHCI workshop, “The Power of Immersive Stories,” to be held April 15-16, 2021, from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. The workshop will feature three outside keynote speakers and two outside artists, as well as brief talks by faculty and students, group discussions, videos, and demos. The workshop is free, but registration is required. For more information, please see the detailed agenda on the workshop website.

In advance of the workshop, CHCI will hold three Reading Group sessions to re-acquaint ourselves with the ideas and research related to the theme. Everyone is welcome to attend.

All three reading group sessions are on Fridays, at either 10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m., held on Zoom. See the pre-workshop section of the workshop website for details of the reading sessions.

Please read the paper for our first reading discussion on March 12 at 10:00 a.m., by one of our keynotes, Rebecca Rouse. Papers for keynotes Jeremy Bailenson and Stephen Ware are forthcoming.

It is time for our annual celebration of creativity and innovation at the convergence of science, engineering, arts and design, held online this year. The celebration includes a gallery exhibit, creativity and innovation projects to explore, a series of live, lively discussions, and an experimental computer music concert.

The deadline for project consideration for the festival is May 7, 2021. Two Virginia Tech projects will be selected for festival participation. Notifications of final acceptance for the festival will be in July 2021.
