MODE 2015 – Motion Design Education Summit (June 2015, Dublin Ireland)

Date: June 3-5, 2015
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Website: http://www.modesummit.com/index.html
Deadline for abstracts: EXTENDED 15 January 2015

The University of Notre Dame, The Ohio State University, Kent State University and Michigan State University jointly present the 2nd MODE Summit. This international event brings together motion design educators from different areas of expertise to present work and discuss motion and how it enhances, effects, changes messages, meaning, and communication. The conference takes place in Dublin, Ireland, 03–05 June 2015 at the O’Connell House and the Royal Irish Academy.

MODE is a gathering of design educators who specialize, research and teach in the area of motion design. We see this event of particular interest and relevance to graphic design, visual communication design, typography, cinema, theatre, animation and storytelling. Together we will address the growing field of motion design and the need for scholarly driven literature and examples to support and challenge educators.

We are inviting papers that explore different aspects of Motion Design education and practice. Upon acceptance, your work will be part of a peer reviewed anthology of motion design materials to be published in the conference proceedings. Keynote speakers for the conference will be announced in the coming months.

The 1st MODE Summit took place at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. Conference attendees came from a wide range of academic institutions and international locations. We expect to build on the momentum created in 2013, as motion design educators continue to discuss, share, and examine the field collaboratively.

Questions may be directed to any of the members of the organizing committee
