Visit Jiangnan University

July 8th, 2010 Comments off

From June 6 to 9, prof. Matthias Rauterberg and I were invited to the School of Design,  Jiangnan University in Wuxi, China. In these 3 days, we presented our education system and our research projects to the teachers and students, had several discussions about possible cooperations in both education and research, and organized a one day workshop “discrete interaction design” for 30 students. The students were very much interested in the topics we presented, especially the interactive way of presenting them. It was a successful and fruitful visit. We definitely look forward to the cooperations.
