Report from CSUN 2014

As I arrived in San Diego for CSUN 2014, I had one question on my mind: How was I possibly going to choose among all the amazing concurrent sessions on image and math accessibility? There was nothing to do but jump in with both feet! Here is a brief roundup of the sessions I got to attend:

Office Hours with the DIAGRAM Center at CSUN 2014

Our second annual “Office Hours” for DIAGRAM Advisory Board and Working Group members was just as lively this year as it was last year, as community members got a chance to catch up and/or meet up in person for the first time. Judging from the full room and energetic conversation, I think it’s safe to say that we will hold this event again next year at CSUN 2015.  Many thanks to everyone for coming!

Highlights from the Exhibit Floor

Notable to me this year was the interest in 3D printing for accessibility, and the American Thermoform Corporation did not disappoint on their live demos from the exhibit floor. And, nothing livens up a conference like the surprise appearance of an international superstar. In case you missed this, here is a fun clip from the local San Diego news about Stevie Wonder having shown up at CSUN – the loop they show the most frequently in the background? Our own Mark Hakkinen chatting it up with Mr. Wonder.
