We drove 14+ hours and the conference had a lot of amazing speakers! INCLUDING
Andrew Cawrse: 3D modelling god who has also worked on movies such as Avatar, Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, and anatomy-master extraordinaire
Danny Quirk: a painter whose work is shown above – dissecting with a paintbrush!
A lot of cool displays, including some of Andrew Cawrse’s work up for sale, the Autodesk booth, and the Wacom table! It was also great meeting up with the other schools :) We hadn’t seen them since our student conference; the AMI Salon was full of beautiful works by everyone… I can’t wait ‘til next year!
R.L. Scott’s magnificent collection of arms and armour, which he generously bequeathed to the people of Glasgow, comprises 890 pieces and a staggering 3000 books and manuscripts. The main aim that Scott intended for this collection was to "provide an instructive survey of the history of arms and armour to the people of Glasgow".
"The Real Fighting Stuff" Conference will take place in the same city Scott chose as the home for such extraordinary pieces as the "Avant" armour (c. 1440) and the only surviving copy of the earliest printed book with illustrations on swordsmanship (Vienna, 1516).
The event will take place on Thursday the 12th and Friday the 13th of March 2015.

We’ve just had a large order of Color Communication Badges arrive at our office!
We would love to see more events where every attendee who would like one has access to communication badges. If you or your organization are interested in having Color Communication Badges as an accessibility feature at your conference or event, please e-mail ASAN and let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
