Events 9th April 2019

On 8th April 2019 CDE Research Engineers got together at Hamilton House in London for a CDE Peer Research Workshop.  This event which was suggested by and planned by the students themselves, gave our researchers the opportunity to present their own research and experience of being an EngD student to their peers.  This was followed up by feedback sessions and group discussions of specific research questions in the afternoon.

At the end of March CDE Research Engineer Joanna Tarko attended IEEE VR 2019, the 26th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces in Osaka Japan.  Joanna worked as a Student Volunteer at the conference and also presented a poster on her research on Omnidirectional Mixed reality.

On 20th March 2019 CDE Research Engineer Ifigeneia Mavridou gave a lecture on the first day of the International Conference in Virtual Reality, at the Laval Virtual, in Laval, France. The lecture was titled “Emerging Affect Detection Methodologies in VR and future directions” which received a lot of interest and triggered discussions as the area of emotion detection in Virtual Reality is still at its early stages.  The Laval Virtual conference and exhibition was running for the 21st time this year, and gathered 20,000 visitors which makes it the largest immersive technologies event in the world, dedicated to VR/AR/MR
