Sophia Sobers of Budd Lake presented “Parametric Architecture” in the design category of the research poster session at the Association of Computing Machinery's 2010 SIGGRAPH Conference last month in Los Angeles. Sobers, who expects to graduate in May 2011 with a BS in architecture from NJIT and a BA in art from Rutgers-Newark, is the first undergraduate from the College of Architecture and Design to have a research poster accepted for presentation at the premier computer graphics annual conference. She explored the idea of creating a “responsive architecture” – an architectural system that explores the idea of using a parametric interface that reacts and changes based on user input that was originally developed as part of coursework with Henry Grosman, adjunct faculty in the New Jersey School of Architecture. >>
Daniel Palma of Paterson and Benjamin Gross of Lambertville, two juniors from NJIT's School of Art + Design, were selected to serve in the Student Volunteer Program at the Association of Computing Machinery's 2010 SIGGRAPH Conference. Admission to the Student Volunteer Program is highly competitive and provides participants access to network with industry leaders and the opportunity to attend short courses, presentations of production case studies, and technical paper sessions. Students provide a minimum of 30 hours of service during the conference, which started on July 24 and concluded on July 30 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Palma and Gross are both third-year students in the Entertainment Track in NJIT's new BA program in Digital Design. For the bilingual Palma, an EOP student and past recipient of a Director's Scholarship in the School of Art + Design, this marked the second consecutive year he was selected to participate at SIGGRAPH; 2010 was the first SIGGRAPH conference for Gross, a student in the Albert Dorman Honors College at NJIT. >>
