New media and technologies experts coming to RIT

Hundreds of experts in the field of new media and technologies are attending a conference this week held by the Center for Media, Arts, Games, Interaction and Creativity at Rochester Institute of Technology.

The New Media Consortium is expected to bring 300 attendees to the campus and the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center from Tuesday through Thursday. Participants are highly skilled professionals from universities, colleges, museums and research centers.

“I am excited to welcome friends and colleagues from across the nation and around the globe to the New Media Consortium in 2016,” said Andrew Phelps, the director of the MAGIC Center and organizer of the conference.

“Together, this community continues to shine as a beacon of excellence in the creation, exploration and dissemination of digital media and associated educational curriculum.”
RIT is the first university to hold the consortium since the University of Wisconsin-Madison held it in 2011.

The MAGIC Center is a non-profit universitywide research and development laboratory and a for-profit production studio that assists in efforts to bring digital media creations up to marketplace standards and commercialization.
