SCI-GEN SCIgen - An Automatic CS Paper Generator About SCIgen is a program that generates random Computer Science research papers, including graphs, figures, and citations. One useful purpose for such a program is to auto-generate submissions to conferences that you suspect might have very low submission standards. We went to WMSCI 2005. Also, check out our 10th anniversary celebration project: SCIpher! Generate a Random Paper Want to generate a random CS paper of your own? SCIgen currently supports Latin-1 characters, but not the full Unicode character set. Examples Here are two papers we submitted to WMSCI 2005: Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of Access Points and Redundancy (PS, PDF) Jeremy Stribling, Daniel Aguayo and Maxwell Krohn This paper was accepted as a "non-reviewed" paper! Talks Thanks to the generous donations of 165 people, we went to WMSCI 2005 in Orlando and held our own "technical" session in the same hotel. As promised, we videotaped the whole thing.

10 oeuvres interactives qui donnent le sourire — Interactivité & Transmedia Rome Il y aura beaucoup de musique dans cette sélection, donc autant commencer par ça.

The Dancing Traffic Light Incontournable dans une telle sélection, le concept simple et efficace du feu de signalisation qui danse est à découvrir pour ceux qui n’ont pas encore eu ce plaisir. The Johnny Cash Project J’admets qu’à première vue, le fait d’intégrer ce projet dans une liste d’oeuvres qui donnent le sourire n’est pas évident… Réalisé pour célébrer la disparition du célèbre chanteur, ce projet collaboratif a permis à plus de 250 000 fans du monde entier de “redessiner”, image par image, son dernier clip.

Cassie Stephens: In the Art Room: Walk Like an Egyptian Last week most of my third grade students finished their Egyptian sarcophagus. We had a lot of fun with this looong project and I thought I'd share it with you. It began way back at the beginning of the school year. I remember it like it was yesterday... I spent the first week of school dressed as King Tutankhamun (aka Tut). As King Tut, or Mrs. After that, we got a little side tracked with other projects: a field trip to the local art museum to see an Egyptian exhibit; a school-wide t-shirt tie-dying project; and a fall leaf-relief project. We began with a self-portrait drawing. Understanding the concept of shading is a pretty advanced skill. For the sarcophagus, students were given a 3' (maybe a pinch longer) piece of butcher paper. With a piece of vine charcoal, students drew hands, crook and flail and, if they wanted, Isis, the winged goddess.
