Day 2 :
New Media Film Festival, USA
Keynote: The Future of Media
Time : 10:00-10:45
Susan Johnston is President of Select Services Films, Inc. an award winning production company which is also certified DBE, has a casting division and New Media Film Festival division. As a kid, Susan was on the set of the 1st Great Gatsby where she met Robert Redford while her father was handling the antique cars. From there, she worked on every production she could garnering experience in every department of filmmaking. Her first film a 35mm color film noir short Room 32 which won two awards, received distribution and was requested by Spiderman 3 for their production team.
A case study will be shared about two different animation projects and their journey through option, development, packaging, producing, editing, and distribution. In addition, current animation trends, from Independent to Studio Level, hand drawn, digital, 3D 4K, 5D and all things in between and advancing.

Time : 11:00-11:45
Timoleon Kipouros is Senior Research Associate in Engineering Design Centre at University of Cambridge, UK. He received his Ph.D., Engineering (Multi-objective Aerodynamic Design Optimisation) from University of Cambridge. He is currently working on the development of High Performance Computing Distributed Design Optimisation Systems and Architectures for industrial applications, as well as human-in-the-loop Computational Engineering Design approaches. He currently working in the TOICA project among other, with emphasis on Value Driven Design and Visual Analytics for Engineering Design. He had good number of publications in reputed journals.
In this talk, Timos will emphasise on the importance of visualisation and human-computer interaction in engineering decision making. In particular, how interactive parallel coordinates visualisation is a key methodology to extract understanding from computational engineering design studies. Real world examples will also reveal how to link high level expectations and requirements of programs to key engineering performance characteristics and in extend to technical engineering design properties establishing communication between stakeholders and domain experts.
