Objectives

The objective of this summer school is to propose a privileged moment for stimulating discussions and exchanges around Virtual Reality. Meetings will be organized around talks, workshops and social events.

As for every summer school, PhD students, academic or private researchers, are invited to come to present the progresses of their research works, challenges and corresponding solutions they put forward. We also encourage Master students to participate.

Within these privileged moments, we hope to be able to stimulate European collaborations around Virtual Reality leading to new European projects proposals (Horizon 2020).

Overview

We observe several evolutions of research axes of scientific community in Virtual Reality.

Among these evolutions, 3D worlds have become very realistic nowadays and a lot of research has been focused on 3D interaction these last years, with specific interests in natural user interfaces and tangible interfaces.

Since interaction is closely related to perception, sensory interfaces are continuously evolving for a perception that is now multi-sensory. In the same way, systems, such as virtual human or robot, senses, communicates and interacts.

On the other hand, with mobile and pervasive computing, it is becoming also usual to augment our perception of real world. We can observe more and more mixed universes, and we deal with multisensory augmented reality now. However, several questions subsist on engineering of these new systems.
