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.

Virtual Reality Summer School 2017

“Immersive Presence, Augmented Visualization and Advanced Interaction”

Nowadays the 3D world has become very realistic and research has been focused on 3D interaction with specific interests in natural user interfaces and tangible interfaces. Since interaction is closely related to perception, sensory interfaces are continuously evolving for a perception that is now multi-sensory. On the other hand, using smart phones and tablets the augmented perception of real world is becoming more and more common; however, several questions subsist on engineering of these new systems.

The main aim of the Virtual Reality Summer School is to propose a privileged moment for stimulating discussions and exchanging scientific experiences and technical results related to the Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies.

The Summer School is open to Ph.D. and Master students, post-doctoral researchers and academic or industrial researchers. Researchers of university and industry who want to present the results of their projects or give a lecture on a specific topic concerning the virtual and augmented reality technologies are welcome. Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit their research-in-progress presentation during the summer school. Master students are strongly encouraged to participate at the school.

Lectures will span topics from virtual environments and augmented reality applications to 3D user interfaces and required technology to enable these environments to a wide range of applications.

The main thematic areas of the Virtual Reality Summer School are:

– medicine
– cultural heritage and arts
– architecture
– education
– industry and military
– games and serious games
– interaction and presence in VE
