Mobile Processing is a yearly conference hosted by the UIC Innovation Center in support of Chicago’s creative and development communities. The 2011 conference, held from November 11-13, 2011, focuses on the Android and JavaScript modes of Processing 2.0.

Organized by UIC New Media Arts, associate professor Daniel Sauter, Mobile Processing brings together internationally recognized innovators from the open source software community, startup companies, students, and scholars, from areas such as Art and Design, Computer Science, Communication, and Information Sciences. The 2nd edition features a series of lectures, workshops, and presentations, all free and open to the public (workshops require prior registration). A new addition to the conference is the Chicago Processing Forum, featuring Chicago-based projects and companies using the open source Processing environment.

Keynote speaker Ben Fry, winner of the 2011 National Cooper-Hewitt Design Award, will present the first release of Processing 2.0, and its new modes now targeting Android devices and JavaScript-powered web apps. The award-winning language is used by tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. Currently, more than 70,000 individuals use Processing on a regular basis. Processing is free to download, open source and cross-platform.

The UIC Innovation Center is a collaboration space embedded in a leading research university, initiating programs and activities that bridge research and education with industry.

EVL digital media research specialist, JD Pirtle kicks off this years event Thursday, November 10th, 5pm with an introduction to the Processing Workshop.
