Hi folks!

Next week there's a special cross-organizational social event here in Portland, OR, organized by Cascade SIGGRAPH - see below!

I hope we can generate some good IxDA representation -- plus I hear that Lucky Lab has perhaps the best brews in town! Please note that an RSVP to cascadesiggraph at gmail.com is requested.


Off topic P.S. -- Apologies to everybody who received one of my BoxTrapper anti-spam confirmation messages over these past few days - I had some logistical issues that should now be resolved!

More About Each Organization

IxDA — The Interaction Design Association, IxDA (www.ixda.org), is a non-profit professional organization whose focus is promoting both the field of interaction design and the interests of an international community of practitioners, managers, educators, and students of interaction design. Our organization's goals are to:

· communicate the unique perspective that interaction design brings to both industry and the broader design community

· promote awareness of the discipline, craft, and value of interaction design among business leaders, academia, consumers, and our colleagues

· advance the discipline of interaction design by encouraging the adoption of innovative methods

· encourage and recommend high standards of practice among interaction design professionals

· help establish standards for academic programs in interaction design

· develop an active, close-knit community of interaction design professionals worldwide.

CHIFOO — CHIFOO (pronounced ky - FOO'), the Computer-Human Interaction Forum of Oregon ( www.chifoo.org), is the local chapter of ACM SIGCHI, the ACM's Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction. The ACM is the Association for Computing Machinery, the national professional society for computing and information processing.

CHIFOO's purpose is to provide a mechanism for exchanging ideas, and organizing workshops & similar educational activities related to computer-human interaction.

ASIFA — The Association International du Film d'Animation, or the International Animated Film Association (www.asifaseattle.com ), is the Pacific Northwest's foremost organization for the animation community, with a collective membership of professional animators, filmmakers, students, teachers and fans as well as affiliated professions such as voice-over actors, composers, puppeteers, illustrators and cartoonists. The Northwest has a rich history of experimental and independent animation, as well as commercial production in the areas of stop-motion, computer graphics visualization, interactive and video game animation. The mission is to promote the art of animation and foster the development of the animation industry in the Pacific Northwest.

ASIFA Seattle was founded, in 1988, as ASIFA-NW, and split into Seattle and Portland chapters in 2006. It is one of nine U.S. chapters of the International Animated Film Association, ASIFA, which was established in 1960. As of 2005, there were approximately 2000 ASIFA members in more than 30 ASIFA chapters worldwide.

SIGGRAPH — The Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter (www.cascadesiggraph.org) exists to serve the needs of the Oregon and Southwest Washington computer graphics industry and students. Through meetings, workshops, conferences, and other activities, the Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter works to promote an increased knowledge of and greater interest in the educational, artistic, and scientific aspects and applications of modern technology to graphics, enhancing communication between persons in Oregon and Southwest Washington that have an interest in any aspect of computer graphics.
