A new face for our Association

EuroVR is a European Association with more than 10 years of experience which provides a network for all those interested in all interactive technologies (VR/AR/MR) to meet, discuss, and promote all topics related to XR technologies. Establishing connections with National Associations and Chapters in relevant fields, promoting research excellence as well as support the creation of Special Interest Groups in specific field. As you know, EuroVR’s goal has always been to create an International Network to establish virtuous circles of collaborations among those operating in the interactive technologies area.

Right now we are currently going through an unprecedented crisis, it is necessary to adapt and modernize to keep up with the times, and it is more essential than ever that we join forces to overcome it together. In the wake of these changes, also our Association needs to evolve and adapt to the current trends, for these reasons we thought it is necessary a rebranding of EuroVR. We are very fond of the name that we have used until now and that has accompanied us for many years, but now it is necessary that our brand also reflects what we do and who we are. We don’t want our brand to be limited only to VR technologies (although in the full name we have since the beginning both VR and AR) but we want to communicate that we include all XR, also looking to the future intelligent interactive technologies.

Meeting the network: I-SENSE ICCS

Today the category “Meeting the network” brings us to Athens, Greece were ICCS is based.

The Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS), is a non-profit Academic Research Body established in 1989 by the Hellenic Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs to carry out applied Research and Development activity in the areas of telecommunications, computer systems and their applications in a variety of research themes. ICCS is linked to the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and is hosted by the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (SECE). 

In EuroVR, ICCS is represented by one of its research groups, the Intelligent System Engineering and Novel Simulations Environment (I-SENSE) Group, founded in 2002 by Dr. Angelos Amditis as a continuation of various smaller research groups already active from the early ‘90s.

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.

PhD position: TITUS: Telexistence In Through-life engineering Services

Cranfield University, Grenoble University and dstl are seeking a top class candidate to undertake research leading to PhD awarded. The thesis will be driven by John Erkoyuncu from Cranfield with Samuel Court in collaboration with G-SCOP in Grenoble (co-advisor Fr. Noël).

Project Description

Telexistence provides a means to complete maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) activities remotely that have the risk of causing physical injury and harm to the maintainer, or the by the same method, exceed the normal human capabilities of the individual with physical augmentation able to deal with increased loads without additional human manpower.  Combined with non-destructive testing (NDT) methods, this research seeks to develop novel methods for state-of-the-art remote virtual reality simulation for digital-twin robotic avatars.
