EuroVR2019: Keynotes and program of our XR Conference

In a few weeks, we will be in Tallinn, for the annual EuroVR event. The XR conference is organized by the EuroVR members, namely MEKTORY and TalTech University, and it is focussed on virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality. Three days (23-25 October 2019) during which we will delve into the different applications of these technologies, from industry to user studies evaluations.

The program of the conference: focus on XR technologies

XR will be at the center of the conference: virtual, augmented and mixed reality will be analyzed by different perspectives, thanks to the talks and discussions which will take place during the conference.

Reading the program on the official website of the event, we can see the various works which will be introduced at EuroVR Conference within scientific and application sessions.

Moreover, additional events will enrich the conference program:

  • Are you a EuroVR member? Don’t miss the general assembly, one of the main meetings for an association, which will take place on October 24th at 5:45 PM.
  • Are you looking for an informal event, good for networking? The Gala Dinner in Tallinn is the perfect place to create new connections, and exchange opinions with the participants.
  • Would you like to know more about the Estonian industry and the innovative application of technology in this country? On the last day, EuroVR brings you to visit some local industries, like Ericsson, Magnetic MRO, e-Estonia Briefing Centre, and ABB.

Keynotes speakers

Two Keynotes speakers will inspire the participants during the conference before the daily scientific and application sessions.

On October 24th, Dr. Aleksei Tepljakov will open the day with the talk Towards Intelligent Immersive Virtual Environments. Research Scientist at TalTech, Dr. Tepljakov’s research is focussed on fractional-order modeling and control of complex systems and developing efficient mathematical and 3D modeling methods for virtual and augmented reality for educational and industrial applications.

On the same day, Pr. Mariano Alcañiz Raya, Professor at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain) and Director of the Laboratory of Immersive Neurotechnologies (LabLENI), will give the talk In Search of Behavioral Biomarkers for Mental Disorders Using VR.

New Keynotes speakers will be announced in the next days. Stay tuned!

EuroVR 2019: August 9 – deadline application track

After closing of EuroVR 2019 – Scientific track, it is time to get focused on the Application track. This section welcomes contributions like use cases, prototypes, demo, and exhibition of projects about virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality.

Contributions

The Application track, which will close on August 9, 2019, foresees three types of contributions:

  1. Application talk: best practices, industrial use cases of VR/AR/MR, project results and demonstrations of applications of virtual, augmented and mixed reality in industry, and/or actual or potential transfers of academic results.
  2. Application poster: recently completed VR or AV/AR/MR applied for work, application in progress, or unusual applications.
  3. Demo & Exhibition: live demonstrations of past and on-going projects. Technology developers and suppliers, exhibitors, digital artists and members of the VR/AR/MR industrial communities are all invited to exhibit and demonstrate the latest technologies and applications.

All accepted abstracts in this track will be published in the Application proceedings of EuroVR 2019 as an ISBN-registered volume edited by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.
EuroVR 2019 conference is the perfect place where showcasing prototypes, demos, and on-going project to get reviews by the experts from industry and academia.

Journal invitation and awards

In addition, a set of the best-accepted contributions will be selected by a special committee structured according to the categories of the Scientific and Application tracks, to invite the authors of the selected contributions to submit an extended version to the open-access journal Frontiers in Virtual Environments.

Last but not least, based on the work of the same special committee, best awards will be decided for each contribution category within each track. More information on the EuroVR best awards procedure will be available soon on the EuroVR 2019 website, as well as the winners of previous years.

Additional information
