MCI-WS07: Virtual and Augmented Reality in Everyday Context (VARECo)

Ort/Raum: APB / E007

The ongoing commercialization of consumer VR/AR hardware opens up the field of potential scenarios and applications for VR and AR towards everyday context but simultaneously raise new challenges that need to be addressed in current and future research. These challenges are, for instance, the need for long-term use, the integration of hard- and software into existing work spaces, or the need for flexible and cheap creation of content (as in education). To support research and development in this area of interest, we organize this one day workshop on VR and AR in Everyday Context (VARECo) bringing together interested researchers and practitioners to discuss current and future work in this research domain.
