Authors are invited to submit a 1200 – 1500 word digest for presentation at one of the conference oral sessions or the media showcase interactive session. Note that a digest is not merely an extended abstract, but rather a condensed summary of the work performed, including as much data and as many results and conclusions as possible.

Digests are peer-reviewed. Authors of accepted digests must be present at the conference in order to have their digests included in the conference proceedings.

Topics should be of interest to the graphics education community. The topics listed will have first priority.

  • Curriculum development
  • Teaching and learning strategies
  • Assessment in graphics education
  • 3D modelling in engineering design
  • Innovative technology
  • Visualization
  • Diversity in engineering education
  • Graphics in international contexts
  • Virtual/augmented reality
  • Trends in graphical education
  • Graphics education at elementary & K-12 levels

Submit abstracts and digests electronically by 5PM EDT on due dates to:


Selected digests will be invited for a special issue of the Engineering Design Graphics Journal


The EDGD media session is intended to be an interactive session, which allows the authors to discuss their topics or demonstrate techniques.

The session allows for one-on-one interaction with the audience. Display boards and/or tables will be provided. In addition, authors can set up a computer display that allows interactivity or onscreen displays. This format allows authors to display physical props or models that are not as effective in a larger group presentation. The presentation should include visuals; simply posting a paper is not acceptable.


Hello to Attendees of the 73rd EDGD Midyear Conference in Berkeley California!

We are happy that you can join us this year for our annual Midyear Conference.  Here are some reminders:

  1. All events will be held in Bowles Hall, which is located at 1928 Stadium Rim Way in Berkeley.  It is across the street from the main UC Berkeley campus on the west side, around a 10-15 minute walk from the hotels.  The building looks like a castle, with an American flag flying from the tower.  Call Dennis Lieu at 1-925-330-8781 if you get lost.
  2. Check-in will be at Bowles Hall starting Sunday morning at 9:00 AM.  Please go through the main doors, located at the top of the long set of stairs in front of the building. Turn left immediately in the foyer to enter the Dining Hall, and the check-in table will be right there.  After check-in you are free to hang around the building.  It’s a sort of neat place.
  3. You should bring your laptop computers.  All of the workshops (NCSU, Autodesk, Solid Professor) will require a laptop computer.  The guest WiFi in the building is free, and fast.
  4. The Executive Committee will meet on Sunday, 6 January, 3:00 – 5:00 PM, in the Hart Library in Bowles Hall.
  5. The NCSU workshop will be 5:00 – 6:00 PM, also in the Hart Library in Bowles Hall.
  6. There is a Media Showcase and Welcome Reception 6:00 – 8:00 PM in Bowles Hall.  Be sure to attend this event.  There will be food enough for dinner and a live jazz band  http://www.suenosjazz.com/ .  This will be your best opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones.
