Hi ~,

We’ve started the NUI year off great so far and have many exciting announcements we thought may interest you.
The community has grown to over 4500 members and we’re fast approaching the pivotal number of 5000. With growth comes opportunity, and we’ve been lucky enough to have some of the following incredible opportunities:

NUI Group @ Touch Camp - Paris March (21 – 22)

A wide variety of NUI Group members will be coming together at Touch Camp – Paris this weekend. Touch Camp has been proposed to present and evaluate existing applications, software solutions, programming environments and the various multitouch frameworks available. We hope this Touch Camp will be a fruitful meeting of the makers and shakers in TUI interaction for the elaboration of collaborative multitouch content.

NUI Group @ IDC 2009 (April 21 - 23)

NUI Group has partnered with the Interactive Displays 2009 Conference in Silicon Valley, California. With names such as Jeff Han, Andy Wilson, and Steven Bathiche all attending, it’s sure to be a great experience. This conference will be also be a unique opportunity to connect with the NUI Group community for an educational and inspirational experience that can’t be found anywhere else. There will be a NUI Group workshop and think tank to discuss the future vision for NUI Group.
