{MoDe} Motion Design Education Summit (April 2013, Notre Dame Indiana USA)

Dates: 26-27 April 2013
Deadline for submissions: 14 December 2012
Location: University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana
{MoDe} is a gathering of design educators who specialize, research and teach in the area of motion graphic design. This event will address the growing field of motion graphic design and the need for academically driven text and examples to support and challenge design educators.
Contributors / attendees will be part of a collective knowledge that will produce a manifesto that describes the impact of motion design, recognizes leaders in the field, considers the future of professional practice and academia, builds a foundation for coursework and theory and finally provides educators a space for sharing, comparing and disseminating teaching innovations and methodologies. Finally we will produce an e-book for the iPad that reproduces the concepts of motion by actually using animation and demonstration within the illustrations and exercises.
We seek participation by motion design experts from both academia and professional practice. Those looking to participate can apply by sending a letter of interest to modesummit@gmail.com. Please include:
+  A Bio (less than 300 words)
+  A Curriculum Vitae or Resume
+  Samples of personal work or student work, animations preferred.
