Merging Realities: An Event of Multiple Perspectives is taking place on April 26, and the conference will feature renowned guests from the fields of virtual and augmented reality.
They will be speaking to participants who can join in from around the world.
This is made possible by being the first full-day conference to be hosted completely in virtual reality.
Kris Hodgson, interim chair of Lethbridge College’s School of Media and Design, says many virtual meetings have been held around the world, but this is the first conference they know of will spend an entire day in the virtual setting.
“Industry-leading speakers will highlight the latest advances in virtual and augmented reality. Our Multimedia Production program has spearheaded this event, led by instructor Mike McCready and his students, and it’s truly incredible what has been accomplished in only a few months.”
Some of the keynote presenters will include: Alan Smithson: co-founder and CEO of MetaVRse; Alex Katzen: Google’s Daydream business development team content specialist; Cathy Hackl: VR/AR global speaker, futurist and one of the most influential women in tech.
ARVRtech is, in particular looking forward to try out the latest technology, that will start shipping this summer from LOOXID LABS, that will be great addition for Immersive4Learning VR platform for personalized learning and training course creation.
