The Workshop on Everyday Virtual and Augmented Reality focuses on the investigation of well-known VR/AR/MR (XR) research themes in everyday contexts and scenarios other than research laboratories and specialist environments.
Christoph Borst, professor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and past WEVR author and co-organiser will give the opening keynote at the workshop.
Abstract: Virtual reality is gaining recognition as a medium for remote classes or meetings when in-person meetings are difficult or risky. This talk will summarize: 1) two recent case studies of VR for remote education, 2) ongoing research to enhance remote educational VR interfaces using enhanced sensing such as eye tracking, and 3) challenges and practical considerations for the long-term success of everyday educational VR.
Bio: Christoph W. Borst is a Professor and the founder of the Virtual Reality Lab in the School of Computing at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He has worked with national and international gigabit initiatives (US Ignite-Ignite SA, Mozilla Gigabit, and various Smart Gigabit Communities) to prototype remotely-guided educational VR approaches on emerging gigabit networks. Dr. Borst's ongoing work considers enhanced VR sensing to detect and respond to student attention levels. Dr. Borst obtained a PhD from Texas A&M University in 2002, for research on naturalistic hand-based interaction in VR.
