The 23rd Int’l Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia will be held October 30th – November 2nd 2017 in Ireland at University College Dublin, with Special Workshops and Cultural Tours on November 3rd – 5th in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
VSMM2017 will explore ground-breaking applications of new media, VR, sensing, and imaging in creative societies. Some 30 years after the dawn of VR, with a new boom in virtual devices, products and applications, it is an apt moment to look “Back to the Future” and examine the potentials and pitfalls of VR, AR and 3D technologies. With virtual and 3D technology entering health to tourism, games to manufacturing, and art to entertainment, deep issues and questions arise.
The Conference will bring together researchers and academics, creative industry professionals and technologists, futurists and students to explore where virtual and 3D technologies have been and are taking us. Experts in the arts and culture, heritage and museums, design and engineering, architecture and planning, health and inclusion, and computing and digital systems are invited to gather to present, discuss, debate and learn.
