During the computer graphics technology (CGT) departmental accreditation review at Purdue University, it was suggested that the CGT department enhance its interaction with the student body and community. CGT prepares visually oriented students for careers in creating and managing the production of computer graphics within a wide range of industries. A part of this initiative has been to take the existing Spring Show, Spring Banquet, Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) meeting, and CGT 411 senior capstone presentations and merge them into what will become a larger CGT Conference. The Spring Show is a gallery and showcase of student work in the area of computer graphics, while the Spring Banquet is an event with a keynote speaker held to honor students and faculty for their achievements during the academic year. CGT 411 is a group based capstone course that attempts to identify, design, qualify, manage, create and present a final project relative to existing or emerging issues within the discipline. The CGT conference will serve as a showcase of student talent, emerging technologies, and myriad other facets of computer graphics as they apply to Purdue University, the CGT department, and the computer graphics industry. Potential participation was evaluated via surveys.
