A note from organizer Felice Frankel:
We are thrilled to welcome you to participate in our third Image and Meaning regional workshop
February 1-2, 2007 at Apple Computer in Cupertino, CA (IM2.3@Apple) and encourage you to submit the requested material in order to attend. Please see below.
For the time being, because of the truly participatory nature of our workshops, we are forced to limit the number of participants and we deeply apologize for that.
The workshop sessions are in a real sense working sessions. For that reason, each of the four groups, led by our two session leaders (see Contact Us) cannot have more than eight (8) participants in each. We know this from experience.
In addition, it is essential to balance the groups according to scientific discipline. We are convinced that the interdisciplinary nature of the groups: scientists, graphic designers, writers, animators, etc., and the expertise of our leaders, have made these workshops really work.
We ask that you please submit the following to Ruth Goodman, our Program Manager: im2[dot]xworkshops[at]gmail[dot]com. Please read carefully.
Two pages in unlocked PDF format only:
- Your Name
- Email Address
- Mailing Address
- Field of Expertise
- A general question you would like to discuss concerning the visual representation of science (e.g., How might we better express scale, or multiple dimensions?)
- A specific question (e.g., How would we show a wave function or the flow of water through a membrane?)
- Two Images:
- An image, or part of an animation (preferably your own work) which you believe is successful in communicating an idea, and your own explanation of why it is successful.
- An image representing an unsolved problem, an open question or a challenge you currently face, with an explanation of the problem, question or challenge.
- Short descriptions of what each of your two images is trying to "do" (from the scientific perspective), as if you were writing a caption.
Submissions must include everything we request, and will be returned if requirements are not met.
DEADLINE: DECEMBER 15, 2006
Examples of the Page 1 portion of submission may be found here:
You will hear from us soon after December 15, to let you know if you will be part of IM2.3.
Again, we deeply apologize for having to limit the number of participants. Acceptance to the workshop will be made solely on the basis of creating balanced groups.
