About the conference

The University of Vermont invites you to attend its third annual
Computing Strategies Across the Curriculum conference exploring
strategies to enhance the collegiate curriculum through the use of
computers, networks, and media. It includes sessions on art, imaging,
and design, as well as topics including networking, hypermedia and
courseware authoring, libraries and media services, user support and
training, and research and teaching in all academic areas. This year's
conference coincides with Calculated Images: Art and Computer
Technology, an exhibit at the University of Vermont's Fleming Museum
and provides an opportunity to explore the interdependency of art,
science, engineering, and education.

The conference will be held on the University of Vermont campus in
Burlington, Vermont, on Friday and Saturday, April 3 and 4, 1992. The
activities on Friday will include workshops, gallery talks, a keynote
speaker, and a gala reception. Saturday's program will consist of
approximately 35 sessions and workshops presented in 5 separate tracks.
