Professor Angela Washko and Alumnus Peter Burr BFA ’02 will deliver a keynote addresses at the IEEE Games, Entertainment, and Media Conference at Yale University, June 19-22.

The Games, Entertainment and Media (GEM) Conference began in London in 2009, and moved to venues in the US and Canada until 2016. In 2018, the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society re-booted GEM outside of North America for the first time in a decade at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG). GEM 2019, returning to the US, includes a new platform for the exhibition of performances, artworks, and experiences that utilize emerging fields of Motion Capture, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality with a particular emphasis on pedagogy in these areas.
