The IMGD Speaker Series

Interactive Media and Game Development

Spring 2011

Home Schedule Hotlinks

The Interactive Media and Game Development (IMGD) seminar is a weekly meeting on topics of interest to IMGD. Some weeks, we have an outside speaker from industry that will be talking on an IMGD topic. These sessions will be presentation-type events, and open to the general public. Other weeks, we have IMGD faculty lead informal discussions about IMGD syllabi, text books, class projects and more. These sessions may have presentations but will be less formal, conducive for discussions.

Time: Thursdays, 11:00am - 12:50pm [pizza at noon]
Location: Odeum C (Campus Center) or FL (Fuller Labs) 311 or HL (Higgins Labs) 202 (Directions)
Coordinator: Charles Rich
Schedule: (see below)
