BRUSSELS: The 9th edition of the international Streopsia “World Immersion Forum” dedicated to immersion in the form of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, as well as 3D cinema and sound, will be held 11 – 13 December 2017 in Brussels.
The three-day event will include scientific and professional conferences, a two-day training session, a booster session for VR projects, networking receptions, and a gala awards dinner organized in collaboration with the VR Society of Hollywood.
One of the central parts of the event is the Professional Conference (PCON), which offers a series of short, high-pace presentations by world experts on emerging topics in Virtual & Mixed Reality, and 3D cinema. It encompasses the full spectrum of 3D, from science and technology, through art and content, to business. Many of the presentations will feature stereoscopic-3D video (projected on a large screen) and immersive spatial-3D audio. The guest speakers will talk about the latest concepts in 3D immersion in a very succinct and straightforward way for all.
Another impressive part of the Stereopsia is its 3D Academy, a unique and innovative training session on the topic of Mixed Reality (MR) content, using Microsoft HoloLens headset and Unity software. This exclusive training session is aimed at artists and business people, scientists, engineers, computer scientists, technicians and anyone wishing to produce his/her own Mixed Reality contents. The 3D Academy participants will be introduced to the latest in Mixed Reality, which incorporates the real and virtual world. At the end of the programme they will create their own application with the Unity Engine.
On 13 December 2017, the World Immersion Forum will conclude with a prestigious Awards dinner where the famous Lumiere Awards will be handed out to the best 3D and 3DVR productions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Previous recipients of these statuettes have included Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Ang Lee, earning the Stereopsia Awards the nickname of the “Oscars of VR and 3D cinema”.
