The Extended Reality and Robotics Lab (xR2) and the Interacting Minds Centre (IMC) invites you to the

“1st Workshop on Human Computer Interaction in Immersive Environments”

This international workshop will bring together researchers, developers, and industry partners to present and promote research and applications utilizing Immersive Technologies (Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality). Taking as a point of departure VR in training, healthcare and haptics the aim is to link disciplines, explore opportunities and reflect on challenges that surround VR/AR. Thus, by sharing our expertise and stories in the field we can open a dialogue and contribute in the creation of an active interdisciplinary network on Immersive Technologies.
