XR4ALL Day at Laval Virtual 2020

XR4ALL ideation session by video conferencing

On Thursday, 23rd April, XR4ALL organized two ideation sessions to contribute to the European research agenda on XR, driven by our consortium. In the morning, a dozen XR4ALL members joined SIG Chair Matthieu Lépine, to brainstorm on Immersive Collaboration in Smart Industry. And, later in the afternoon, they joined SIG Chair Vincent Lepetit on the very hot topic we’re dealing with now of “Telepresence”. The participants exchanged ideas and talked about opportunities and pitfalls for the future of XR in these two fields, with the help of professional brainstorming coaches from Minke and very real virtual post-it notes. These two virtual sessions were a success.

Laval Virtual World hosted a XR4ALL presentation

On Thursday, 23rd April, more than 60 people from all over the world joined the members of the Consortium in the virtual world of Laval Virtual to attend a presentation on XR4ALL and more specifically on the new open call. Supported by the virtual platform VirBELA, the Laval Virtual organizers succeeded to set up and manage this 22nd edition virtually within 6 weeks. For all the XR professionals, it was a good opportunity to network and follow keynote presentations from their sofa, and, for XR4ALL, a great opportunity to share the last updates of our community.
