Faculty Position Announcement

Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design

The Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio, USA

The Ohio State University's Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and
Design (ACCAD) has a 25 year history of research and instruction in
computer graphics and animation. The Center has a true interdisciplinary
character and attempts to merge scientific investigation with aesthetic
ideals. While it is administratively located in the College of the Arts, it
provides leadership in computer graphics and animation development to
support instruction and research in both the arts and the sciences. It
promotes the study of an aesthetic message design that can have an impact
on such diverse areas as computer software development, advertising and
television promotion, the visual and performing arts, industrial design,
and scientific computing and visualization. Faculty from throughout the
College of the Arts and the College of Engineering conduct their research
at ACCAD and supervise the work of graduate students specializing in the
role of technology in various areas of the arts and sciences.

ACCAD has a state-of-the-art facility which employs expert staff from both
the disciplines of art and technology and utilizes current technology in
computers, film, and video. Equipment includes graphics workstations from
Silicon Graphics, Apple Computer, and Sun Microsystems, an Abekas digital
storage system and a Panasonic WORM Optical Disc for video output, and a
Solitaire film recorder used for film output.

Faculty, staff, and students have published widely in the computer
graphics, art, and scientific visualization literature as well as having
been active in conferences, professional organizations, competitions, and
exhibitions. Graduates of ACCAD have moved on to careers in academia (Texas
A&M University, MIT, School of the Art Institute of Chicago), industry
(Silicon Graphics, Sun Microsystems, IBM), production (ILM, XAOS, Pixar,
PDI), and government (RIACS, NASA).

Currently, ACCAD has an opening for a full-time, tenure-track faculty
member to teach and perform research in our advanced, multidisciplinary
program. This is a joint appointment between ACCAD and one of the following
departments in the College of the Arts: Art, Art Education, History of Art,
Dance, Industrial Design, Theatre, and the School of Music. The selected
individual will be responsible to teach a three academic-quarter series of
graduate level courses in the fundamentals of modeling, rendering, and
computer animation. They will be expected to actively participate in the
ACCAD environment, and fulfill additional teaching, advising, and service
obligations in one of the aforementioned departments. Advanced research is
required in computer applications in a related area including but not
limited to history, theory and criticism, computer animation, product
development, interior design, visual communication, human factors,
visualization as a means of understanding, design development, design
visualization, educational research, convergent media, dance choreography
and/or notation, theatrical set and lighting design, cinematography,
virtual reality, computer generated holography, sculptural installations
(including interactive), and other areas of computer generated imagery.
Contribution to university and professional service is also required.

Qualifications for the position are a terminal degree appropriate to one of
the above departments (in extraordinary situations commensurate experience
may apply), and a prior record of teaching experience (preferably at the
graduate level). A record of activity in extramural research funding is
desired. Rank and salary are negotiable .To be considered for the position,
please submit a letter of application, current curriculum vitae, addresses

IDFORUM downloaders may be interested in hearing about or joining
the National Association for Three Dimensional Design
Education.

The Association was originally formed by a number of Heads
of Departments in U.K. Colleges of Art and Design in the late
1960's, who met once a year to discuss and share common issues
concerning developments in Design Education.

In 1987 a small group of more determined members decided to put
the Association on a more formal footing, and this resulted in
the present Association being formed. The group set out to promote
the aims and values of advanced level design education, including
postgraduate studies and research in: furniture design, industrial
design, interior design, product design, theatre design,
transportation design, ceramics, glass, jewellery, silversmithing,
metalwork, wood metal plastics, through annual conferences,
dissemination of written papers, the media, Government and other
interested organisations.

The recent conferences held at Birmingham, Cardiff, Loughborough,
and Sheffield represent the Association's major effort in bringing
to the attention of Government, Industry and Commerce the real value
and relevance of good design and craft education.

* Seminar on New Technologies in Education *
Budapest - May, 1994

Dear Colleagues:
A little over two years have passed since educators from 23 nations
gathered in Prague for the Third East/West Invitational Seminar on New
Technologies in Education. Together, we dreamed about the future of
education in a union of East and West, and were determined to do our part
to tear down the remaining walls of the Cold War.

As time passes, we become even more aware that the real hope for
improving our world lies in education. Nonetheless, educational
communities among the emerging democracies and the West are still isolated
from each other. This means that the work we started four years ago is
still timely and perhaps needed more than ever. Thus, we are very pleased
to announce our next seminar, the Fourth East/West Invitational Seminar on
New Technologies in Education.

We will meet from May 1-6, 1994, in Budapest, a city that so uniquely
interweaves Eastern and Western cultures and has the rich educational
traditions which gave the world so many outstanding scientists.

Over the past months, we struggled to find a site that could ensure the
adequate participation of colleagues from Eastern Europe, Russia, and the
former Soviet republics. We hope you agree that Budapest is a good choice
for the Fourth East/West Invitational Seminar on New Technologies in
Education.

The themes of the seminar are the following:

A. Technologies and School Reform: New Tools Demand New Models
B. Redefining The Role of the Teacher in the Information Age
C. The Telecommunication Revolution
D. Environmental Studies: A Unifying Theme for Global Education
E. Technological Innovation for a Multinational Community

Attendance is by invitation only. To receive an invitation, we ask that you
return the enclosed form as soon as possible. Since we are currently
preparing the list of invited guests, please recommend any persons you
feel would contribute to our educational goals.

Return the form to our Internet address:
[email protected]; or fax it to: 203-242-7002;

or mail it to us at:
International Technology Exchange, Box 49, Bloomfield, CT 06002 USA.

We look forward to your participation in what promises to be our most
productive meeting ever. If you have any questions or suggestions concerning
the content of the seminar, please contact us via one of the above.
Sincerely,
On behalf of the International Organizing Committee:
Boris Berenfeld
Jana Ryslinkova
Marilyn Schaffer
Alexei Semenov

A New Masters Degree in
D E S I G N F U T U R E S

This MA helps you to articulate a new world-view for the design profession
and its clients, and to reconcile your practices with the world of ideas,
theories and regulations.

It will encourage you to review your methods, mindsets, and missions; and
to challenge the conventional specialist roles of the designer.

KEYWORDS =

interplay
entrepreneurialism
precession
synergy
responsibility

Our department was awarded a 5 (highest rating) for research in the last
national review. We are hoping to recruit a lively group of designers from
a variety of professional backgrounds for the start of term in October
1994.

*you can complete this MA degree over one year (full-time) or over two
years (part-time)
*you can explore and develop ideas and theories whilst maintaining your
studio practice
*you need imagination and a degree in design, art, craft, computing, or
business studies
