Summary Comments from Cad~Con Beta (phil)



A nano-conference to advance our mission of 'fostering substantive collaboration among artists creating jewelry&objects with digital technologies'. It consisted of a full day of presentations and discussions on the state-of-our-art (and associated opportunities), how the Cadlaboration project could fit into our academic programs, as well as a brainstorming and design workshop on the first phase of a collaborative design project between members that will be included in a CadLabOration exhibition touring our respective institutions and end up back in Philadelphia for the 2009 SNAG conference.
