The 2008 International Digital Media and Arts Association Conference in Savannah, Georgia, November 6 - 8.
We are delighted to invite you to the 2008 iDMAa Conference November 6-8 at the Savannah College of Art and Design. The goal of our 6th annual conference is to provoke thoughtful discussion of the factors shaping digital media practice, education, and research now and tomorrow. The conference theme, “Ideas for the Future,” provides the focus of the conference's special events and conference sessions. We challenge you to envision the future digital media landscape: in education, in industry, in global communications, and more.
With the theme of “Ideas for the Future,” we seek proposals for presentations in either of two forms: Thought Pieces and Papers. All submissions must be received by September 19, 2008.
Thought Pieces invite participants to choose the medium that best conveys their ideas for the future of digital media (words, pictures, sounds, whatever). Thought Pieces should be short (no more than 3000 words or 4 minutes). Contact: Scott Shamp (sshamp at uga.edu)
Papers offer a more traditional opportunity for presentation of ideas, positions, and research. Papers will be reviewed for possible publication in the conference proceedings of the iDMAa Journal. To submit your abstract (250 to 500 words) or for more information, see http://www.idmaa.org/idmaa2008/callforpapers.htm. Contact: Jeff Ritchie (Ritchie at lvc.edu).
We request that Thought Pieces and Papers expand upon subjects in the following areas:
• Setting (mobile, outdoor media, virtual worlds)
• Learning (pedagogy, methods, topics)
• Entertainment (video, animation, games)
• Creativity (art, design, music)
• Business (jobs, industries)
All requests for participation must be received by September 19, 2008.
All conference sessions will take place at the Savannah College of Art and Design in historic downtown Savannah, Georgia. SCAD-Savannah offers a large, unique urban campus occupying approximately 2 million square feet in nearly 60 facilities throughout one of the most renowned National Historic Landmark districts in the United States and the South. A special iDMAa Conference hotel room rate is available at the Four Points by Sheraton (www.fourpoints.com/historicsavannah). The Savannah airport (SAV) is served by most major airlines and shuttle or taxi service is available.
