GRAND 2013 Conference

Published by under Conferences


GRAND is the Canadian network on Graphics, Animation, and New Media. Our annual conference was in Toronto this year, right downtown beside the CN tower at the Toronto Convention Centre. We shared the space with Canada 3.0, a large annual digital media event. For GRAND, this was a transition time: we hope to renew our network in 2014, so there were many discussions about what kind of metamorphosis to propose. For our project on usable privacy and security, we decided on literacy as our new theme: literacy about the technology, the law, and about what actually happens out there.

Rilla and Pippin Visit

Published by under News


In May we had a visit from Rilla Khaled and Pippin Barr. They were once here doing post-doctoral work, and are now at the Digital Games Institute at the University of Malta. There were in Canada because Pippin was “Game Designer in Residence” at Concordia University in Montreal, and Rilla was working on grants and book chapters. In Ottawa, Pippin gave the keynote talk at the Interface 2013 conference on Digital Humanities, organized by Carleton graduate students.
