ICDVRAT 2018

The Hackathon will be part of the 12th International Conference on Disability, Virtual Reality and Associated Technologies (ICDVRAT) in association with Interactive Technologies and Games (ITAG):

A Topic  - Affective Learning: Your challenge is to develop games-based learning materials to help people with an intellectual disability or those with autism to learn more effectively. To achieve this, you need to create interactive, technological, engaging learning materials with varying levels of difficulty. The MaTHiSiS system, which will deliver your learning materials, will then adjust the complexity of the materials in response to the learners’ emotional state.  See mathisis-project  for information on the project that created the tools that have launched this challenge.

Computer Graphics & Visual Computing Conference 2018

CGVC 2018, hosted by Swansea University in the UK, is the 36th annual computer graphics, visualization, and visual computing gathering organized by the Eurographics UK Chapter. CGVC has been a Eurographics supported event Since 1983 when the first instance took place 28-29 March 1983 at York University.

The exciting and vibrant field of visual computing is an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. In general, our ability to collect, store, and archive data vastly exceeds our ability derive useful knowledge and insight from it. This is a ubiquitous problem. Visual computing plays a key role in gaining an understanding large, complex data sets or phenomena by exploiting the human visual system. Visual computing leverages computer graphics in order to provide a visual overview, explore, analyze, and present phenomena which is often very difficult to understand.
