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.
