Augmented Reality Summer School – September 2-8, 2018

The Augmented Reality Summer School is an event organized by SALENTO AVR 2018 and it takes place in Torre dell’Orso (Lecce) from September 2 to 8. A whole week dedicated to discussion and talks on Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies, and their combination with new mobile human-machine interfaces.

The Augmented Reality Summer School is open to Ph.D. and Master students, post-doctoral researchers and academic or industrial researchers. PhD students will receive credits (CFU) and they are encouraged to submit their research-in-progress presentation during the summer school. Researchers of university and industry who want to present the results of their projects or give a lecture on a specific topic concerning the augmented reality technology are welcome.

The Lectures provided by the Augmented Reality Summer School will span topics from Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications to different fields, such as medicine, cultural heritage and arts, education, games and serious games.

EuroVR is pleased to be involved in the Scientific Committee of the Augmented Reality Summer School and, moreover, EuroVR President Marco Sacco will give the lecture Augmented & Virtual Reality enabler for the “Factory 4.0” (Lecture 3) on Wednesday, September 5th.
