Autodesk University starts tomorrow

AUTODESK UNIVERSITY — More than 9,000 design professionals from 74 countries will again descend on Las Vegas this week for what has become a yearly pilgrimage of all things Autodesk . Attendees at Autodesk University (AU) 2008 will experience design innovation through the voices of customers in industries such as manufacturing, architecture and building, media and entertainment, automotive and transportation, geospatial and education.

Highlights of the Autodesk University experience include:

AU General Session and Keynotes with Cool Customers: Industry keynote sessions will feature customers such as:

  • Tom Kelley, general manager of IDEO, a seasoned innovation practitioner, will share proven techniques for fostering a culture of creativity and developing processes for continuous innovation.
  • Bob Berkebile, founding principal at BNIM Architects, and Barry Weiss, Sony Pictures Imageworks senior vice president of animation and artist development, will focus on the design visualization side of 3December and discuss the “green” rebuilding of Greensburg, Kansas, a town devastated by a tornado in 2007.

Sustainability: The Sustainable by Design booth features the results of Autodesk’s first sustainability report and showcases products across industries that enable architects, engineers and designers to make more sustainable design decisions. Information is available on how 3D modeling, building information modeling (BIM) and Digital Prototyping enable designers to visualize, simulate and analyze their designs early in the design process to facilitate sustainable design decision making.
