CTFF Interactive Free Video Gaming Information

Greetings everyone. This is a rarity, me posting on a blog, but finally, it's a little quiet and I can finally let you all know what games we will be providing, who made them and what the makers can win for their creations. There will be games on 10 Macs and 10 PCs, with no internet access for your protection. There will be a big screen with a wireless keyboard and another big screen to watch our interactive video compilation.

Our video game room will be open for biz on Thursday, June 4 at 11am and will close on Saturday evening at 6:30pm, as the Keynote, Eric Zimmerman will be at the Polish American Club across the street for a mere $10 at 6:45pm.

William J. Joel, PhD, WCSU, Center for Graphics Research

Dr. Joel received his doctorate in Computer and Information Sciences from Syracuse University in 1995. His thesis focused on a conceptual model that showed how computer animation is a direct outgrowth of more traditional techniques, and how the two can be represented by the same mathematical model. Currently, he is both Chair of the Computer Science Department, and Director of the Center for Graphics Research, both at Western Connecticut State University. His current interests lie in creating animations that have the look and feel of traditional 2D media such as woodcuts and stained glass.
