XR Spring School 2022
The XR eXtended Reality Spring School 2022 “Immersive Presence, Augmented Visualization and Advanced Interaction” May 2 – 7, 2022 – Naples, Italy
The main aim of the eXtended Reality Spring School 2022 is to propose a privileged moment for stimulating discussions and exchanging scientific experiences and technical results related to eXtended Reality technology.
eXtended Reality (XR) is an emerging umbrella term for all the immersive technologies – Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR) – that aims to extend the user senses by blending the virtual and real worlds and creating a fully immersive experience.
Unlike Virtual Reality technology that completely immerses users inside a synthetic environment where they cannot see the real world around them, Augmented Reality permits the real-time fusion of computer-generated digital contents with the real world and Mixed Reality seamlessly integrates these digital objects into reality and the user is under the impression that the virtual and real objects coexist in the same space.
Many applications of XR technologies have been developed in different fields (medicine, education, arts, cultural heritage, entertainment, military, and industry). Recently, new concepts such as Natural User Interfaces and Mobile Immersion have emerged and permit to combine these technologies with new mobile human-machine interfaces. Consequently, mobile immersion will allow users to move away from purely physical communication mode to a mixed/augmented reality communication, interaction, and collaboration mode. Interactions will be natural and augmentations will become ubiquitous.
Minimum number of participants: 25
In order to accommodate a large number of situations, XR Spring School 2022 will be a hybrid even with the possibility of attendance in presence or remotely.
The XR Spring School is a satellite event of the International Conference on eXtended Reality (XR Salento).
