Some of the EMIL partners attended the ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems – the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Our partners presented several research papers in VR, participated in exciting workshops, and showcased demos of their VR research.
📚 The Research Papers: our partners presented papers which provide new insights into Virtual Reality (VR) experiences, including how avatars can improve learning dance, how technical and user factors interact to influence how present we feel, and what type of user characteristics can affect presence.
💻 Virtual Reality Demos: the University of Bath also had the chance to showcase several VR demos which demonstrate the potential of VR in creating immersive experiences and enhancing interactions. It was great to see so much positive feedback and we’re really looking forward to showcasing our EMIL lighthouse research in the future.
🌐 Expanding Our Network: One of the most rewarding aspects of CHI was the opportunity to connect with researchers, industry professionals, and enthusiasts from around the world and spread the word about EMIL.
