4Cs Panel on Representing and Evaluating 3D Spaces (5/1)

full name / name of organization: 
Karla Saari Kitalong/Michigan Technological University and Alissa Torres/University of Central Florida

We are seeking a third panelist for a proposed session on representing and evaluating 3D spaces in technical communication for the 2011 Conference on College Composition and Communication in Atlanta. Our papers will address usability evaluations of 3D spaces in exhibits and simulations and the visual conventions of urban planners' 3D representations in community planning.

Compatible papers could address, but are not limited to:

-- spatial evaluations and their appropriate theoretical and technical frameworks
--technological mediation of 3D visualizations, such as with Geographic Information Systems or Google SketchUp
-- place-based pedagogies incorporating visual communication and analysis
-- visual conventions and visualization practices within a profession, especially in community-based and/or service-learning settings
--seminal theorists, such as Kostelnick or Barton and Barton, who have addressed visual rhetoric, visualization, or mapping within the technical communication field or that discuss major theorists from another field from a technical communication perspective

If you are interested in participating, please forward an abstract of no more than 250 words by Saturday, May 1. Inquiries, questions, and ideas are welcome and will receive a prompt response.
