All Convergence 2020 events will be shifted to an online format due to UF and government guidelines and concerns around novel coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Convergence 2020 events impacted by this update include:
Student Showcase (UF Innovate - The Hub), the Graduating Student Reception, Reality Check 2020, DW Industry Panel Q&A, and Alumni Bash. 

We know this news is very disappointing to our graduating students who have worked so hard to showcase their projects live and in person during Convergence 2020. 

However, Digital Worlds Institute will do all we can to create the best possible shared experience in a new online format. More information will be provided soon in the coming weeks. For questions and concerns, please email convergence@digitalworlds.ufl.edu

UF Digital Worlds Institute’s Convergence event is an annual tradition that brings together students, alumni, community partners, and industry professionals.  It is an occasion to experience and celebrate innovative projects made by digital arts & sciences (DAS) students.


Convergence 2020 opens at UF Innovate I The Hub Thursday evening with our Student Showcase, featuring cutting-edge DAS projects, including a special collaboration with the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). On Friday, the day begins with a Reality Check: Student Portfolio Review, which provides DAS students an opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their portfolios from Digital Worlds’ alums. Friday afternoon, industry panelists will offer DAS students insight into immersive interaction technologies in the form of a Q&A session. Finally, Saturday evening, old friends and mentors will have a chance to reconnect at the Alumni Bash, a festive occasion held at First Magnitude Brewing Company.


Join us for this inspiring event, where you’ll have the opportunity to mingle and interact with a new generation of talent embarking on the next phase of their professional development. 


Student Showcase, for the second year in a row, will be held at UF Innovate | The Hub, a business incubator with a mission to build, drive and support the spirit of innovation.
