We are PLEASED to announce dates & some details for the 2008 f295 Symposium!

The event will take place in Pittsburgh, PA USA May 29 – June 1, 2008. The schedule is beginning to take shape with the following events already planned (though subject to change).

DRAFT Schedule of Events
Thursday May 29, 2008
5-10pm: Symposium reception with work sharing & ‘mini-trade show’ event!

The impromptu work sharing session that erupted at the end of the lectures/round-table discussion last year was such a hit that it’s been officially incorporated as part of the schedule of events. We have a large room in the University Center at Carnegie Mellon at which there will be tables for registered symposium attendees to spread out images, cameras, and other materials and equipment to share with other participants. We’ll also have our friends from B&H there with assorted goodies and symposium specials as well as a few other choice vendors! (this event is ONLY for registered symposium attendees)

Friday May 30, 2008
9am – 6pm: Lectures and round-table discussion at McConomy Hall, University Center, Carnegie Mellon University (same location as this year)
So far we have confirmations from the following speakers (and are working on a few others!):

Martha Casanave
Jill Enfield
Jesseca Ferguson
Jerry Spagnoli

We’re excited to have our friends at the Center for the Arts in Society at CMU partner with us again this year to help bring together this day of lectures and discussion!

Saturday May 31, 2008
8am-5pm Workshops TBA
7-11pm: f295 Exhibition opening at 707 Penn Gallery (next to where we had this year’s show) Watch for the Call for Entry that will be going out soon!

Sunday June 1, 2008
8am-5pm Workshops TBA
9am-12pm: Lensless/alternative photography walk-about
3-6pm: Informal closing get-together/workshop sharing/etc…

Estimated registration fee: $140 USD (this does NOT include workshop registration, and is subject to change as we nail down exact numbers…)

We’re working with Visit Pittsburgh to secure a block of hotel rooms near the event at a special symposium rate. More information TBA.
