EuroVR2018: everything you need to know
EuroVR 2018 Conference was a great success. The event, which took place on October 22-23 at the IET Savoy Place in London, was focused on novel Virtual Reality (VR) up-to Mixed Reality (MR) technologies, including software systems, display technology, interaction devices, and applications.
The programme involved two excellent keynotes from science and industry:
Rob Lindeman, Professor of Human-Computer Interaction and the Research Leader of the HIT Lab New Zealand at the University of Canterbury, NZ who presented his future vision of immersive technologies based on 25 years’ experience.
Luciana Carvalho, an industrial innovator and tech evangelist, presented her discovery of VR/AR which has led to a number of novel start-up companies and international recognition.
The conference ended with the final prizes. The work awarded are:
- Best scientific/Technical paper award: “Structure-aware 3D Hand Pose Regression from a Single Depth Image”(short paper) – Jameel Malik, Ahmed Elhayek, Didier Stricker;
- Best industrial paper award: “Immersive Applications of Industrial Digital Twins” – Jonathan Eyre and Chris Freeman;
- Best poster award: “Using Augmented Reality guides for insertion task: a quantitative study” – Nawel Khenak, Jean-Marc Vézien and Patrick Bourdot;
- Best demo award: “Supporting unemployed with VR: virtual internship project” – Ekaterina Prasolova-Førland, Mikhail Fominykh.
