Digital Salon Call for Submissions

UW DesignLab

Submissions are now being accepted for the 2016 Digital Salon! The Digital Salon is a curated exhibition of new media projects open to all UW graduate and undergraduate students, with recognition for the "best" in several categories. Submit your work by Dec. 11 using this form: The Digital Salon brings together students, faculty, and staff to showcase artistic and research-based projects that take digital form or rely heavily on information technology in the production process. These projects are made available in an online collection and exemplars are displayed in a week-long exhibition. The collection and exhibition are organized and managed by UW-Madison Libraries and DesignLab. Experimental videos, graphic novels and essays, websites, blogs, multimedia installations, posters, other new media work by UW-Madison graduate and undergraduate students are presented in the online collection, and offered as a resource for faculty and students looking for inspiration from their peers. Once a year, College Library’s Open Book Café features work from the past year’s submissions in a week-long exhibition. This year, the exhibition will run from April 10 – 17, 2016.

Graduate Study - Overview

Overview PhotoIf you think all entomologists wear pith helmets and carry nets, you are only partly right.  Entomologists can be found in the jungles as well as the arctic examining insect biodiversity, but they can also be found analyzing DNA sequences, conducting forensic studies, developing agricultural policies, and interfacing with a multitude of other biological problems.  We do it all and do it well.  

Our faculty include professors recognized from campus to national levels for instructional excellence.  In a recent study, our department ranked second in the nation for research productivity.  Our graduates are found in all areas of science including academia, industry, and governmental and non-governmental agencies.  Currently, we offer about 15 courses, a graduate seminars series, as well as research programs that lead to a master’s or doctoral degree.

Departmental research facilities are excellent.  For those studying biodiversity, our department has a vibrant research collection containing nearly 3 million specimens and excellent imaging equipment. There are quarantine facilities for studying invasive species. The campus hosts a state-of-the-art biotechnology center that provides support to all research units.  Computing facilities are available for data-intensive research and statistical consulting services are available.  Nearby is the Biotron, which provides selective control over physical conditions and permits duplication of environmental conditions anywhere on earth.  Greenhouses are available for those studying plant insect interactions.  Experimental farms offer various conditions for field research.
