iLRN 2021: 7th International Conference of the Immersive Learning Research Network
May 17 – June 10, 2021, on iLRN Virtual Campus, powered by Virbela
Conference theme: “TRANSCEND: Accelerating Learner Engagement in XR across Time, Place, and Imagination”
Technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Education Society, with proceedings to be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®
An opportunity to co-create and build virtual educational experiences
Edify is a virtual reality and video conferencing platform that enables remote, immersive, and engaging educational experiences.
From demonstrating gravity in a virtual physics lab to teaching immunity inside the human body, edify helps students learn in impossible ways. Developed in partnership with The University of Glasgow, the platform allows educators to take students wherever they want to go, wherever they are, with immersive lessons and hands-on teaching delivered across browser, mobile & VR.

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.
Today the category “Meeting the network” brings us to Valencia, Spain, were in 1990, a small group of researchers and Ph.D. students created LabLENI.
LabLENI, guided by Professor Mariano Alcañiz, Institute Director and Founder, (among the 10 authors with the highest number of publications worldwide under the topic virtual reality) joined EuroVR Association in 2018 for enhance VR/AR activities around Europe.
The Laboratory of Immersive Neurotechnologies carries out research activities for a better understanding and enhancement of human cognition, combining insights and methods from computer science, psychology and neuroscience. They also develop solutions to support real-life studies and interventions, rather than for use in laboratory settings only.
The series to get to know the people who are part of EuroVR Association continues.
