VR in Science and Industry 2020: Call for VR infrastructure

We are pleased to announce the 4th conference “VR in Science and Industry” organized by the VRISI network on October 6th, 2020. This conference follows a series of successful events taking place every year since 2017 (2017 and 2018 in Aachen, 2019 in Sankt Augustin). The conference brings together end-users from science and industry, as well as solution providers, start-ups, and even individuals with a common interest in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and more generally in interactive technology known as “XR”.

This year’s conference was going to be organized by the Chair of Computer Science Prof. Dr. Ulrich Lang at the University of Cologne. However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the activities of the university, the organizers decided to convert it into an all-digital conference experience. Therefore, “VR in Science and Industry” will be an online event only. While the previous physical events brought together between 80 and 100 experts in XR technologies, we expect for this year a larger audience, thanks to the virtualization of the conference and the opening to high-visibility international keynote
speakers.
