  • Description

    UF Digital Worlds Institute’s Convergence event is an annual tradition that brings together students, alumni, community partners, and industry professionals. It is an occasion to experience and celebrate innovative projects made by digital arts & sciences (DAS) students.

    Convergence 2020 opens at UF Innovate I The Hub Thursday evening with our Student Showcase, featuring cutting-edge DAS projects, including a special collaboration with the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). On Friday, the day begins with a Reality Check: Student Portfolio Review, which provides DAS students an opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their portfolios from Digital Worlds’ alums. Friday afternoon, industry panelists will offer DAS students insight into immersive interaction technologies in the form of a Q&A session. Finally, Saturday evening, old friends and mentors will have a chance to reconnect at the Alumni Bash, a festive occasion held at First Magnitude Brewing Company.

    Join us for this inspiring event, where you’ll have the opportunity to mingle and interact with a new generation of talent embarking on the next phase of their professional development.
