VR@GR: Research and Applications in Greece Today

VR@GR: Research and Applications in Greece Today

Meeting virtual reality at the Onassis Stegi. Two days dedicated to the ones who create vr and to those who wish to take it one step further. Researchers, artists, organizations, and companies discuss today the reality of tomorrow.

Today’s underlying technologies of Virtual Reality (VR) are more mature than ever, while they’ve become accessible for wider audiences. The prospect and practice of Virtual Reality has rekindled the interest of researchers and artists groups, as well as corporations that compete in developing innovative experiences, products and services.

The “VR @ GR” meetup, which takes place in collaboration with the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, is the beginning of a dialogue between the teams currently active in the field of VR in Greece, through bringing together research, applied and artistic works.

It will additionally set the foundations for the Greek Virtual Reality community (VR_GR Special Interest Group). This community will operate in collaboration with the ACM Special Interest Group (Association for Computing Machinery) for Computer Human Interaction – SIGCHI.
