November 9, 2020;

In this series of conversations we will talk with experts about virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR). We will look at research challenges, technologies, and applications of VR/AR/MR. We will also question how such technologies can be used to create a positive impact on our health and wellbeing.

We will have a set of exciting guests in this group of conversations moderated by Katrin Wolf and Albrecht Schmidt (C06). We also hope that the audience will engage in the conversations.


Join us every Tuesday from 17:00-18:00 CET (11am-12pm EST / 8am-9am PST) live in Zoom . Our first meeting will take place on the 10th of November.
