Twenty-Seventh Annual Visual Research Conference Program
November 14-16, 2011, Montreal, Canada
Thomas D. Blakely and Andrea Heckman, Organizers and Chairs
The Visual Research Conference is like a panel discussion or open roundtable with ALL participants (including the “audience”) as potentially contributing in each presentation. Presenters come with works-in-progress, ready to dialogue, not to “read a paper” or “show a film” with a question or two at the end. Visual Research Conference presentations feature much interaction and feedback from an actively participating audience – working to maximize the productive possibilities of being co-present with each other. Of course sometimes a presenter or other participant cannot attend Monday evening through Wednesday early afternoon, but those who can do so should plan to come on Monday, November 14, for dinner at 7pm and participate in the Tuesday and Wednesday presentations to FULLY contribute to and benefit from this small-conference experience.
