ICAT Day is a celebration of the work of Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology. These interactive exhibits, workshops, panel discussions, tours, demonstrations, and performances at the Moss Arts Center show how ICAT is forging a pathway between transdisciplinary research and artistic output, scientific and commercial discovery, and educational innovation. The ICAT community will share engaging experiences from virtual worlds to luminescent forests to roving laptop orchestras. This year's theme is "If..."  Together we will explore the possibilities of working at the nexus of science, engineering, arts, and design.
