LSU College of Engineering Hosts Red Stick Festival’s Video Game Symposium

The intersection of creativity and technology was on display recently as gaming and software industry leaders from around the country converged on the LSU campus to discuss the future of digital arts at the Red Stick Digital Festival’s Video Game Symposium.

The two-day symposium featured a series of panel discussions, group discussions and presentations with media leaders on the future skills needed in the game industry, along with demonstrations from game developers and software firms. The second-annual event was hosted by LSU’s Center for Computation & Technology and LSU’s Digital Media Arts & Engineering.

DMAE Program Director Marc Aubanel said the event aims to bring together “an experienced and diverse panel of guests who represent the collision of interactive and non-interactive industries that virtual and alternate reality represents.” - Jeremy Harper
