Participants

Niklas Elmqvist < elm@cs.chalmers.se >
PhD Student (lic) at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering.
Interested mainly into Augmented Reality and 3D interaction and 3D user interfaces. I'm mostly into 3D user interfaces and 3D interaction techniques for Virtual Reality as well as Augmented Reality. I've been the lead developer for 3Dwm  since 1999. Recently, I started working a little bit with ARToolkit (inspired by the Augmented Chemistry (AC) system) and wrote a C++ binding for the library.

Per A. Jonasson < perjona@mdstud.chalmers.se >
M.Sc. student, Master in Interactive simulation and Game Technology (combined with  System Thinking & Modeling). Chalmers/IT-University, Gothenburg Experience from development, market research and product management in the VR field with Prosolvia, Ericsson, and Swedish Technical Attaché Office in San Francisco. My practical VR experience is now some years old why I am interested in seeing examples of how things have evolved over the past five years. Interested in seeing various applications (“uses”) of VR and AR technology, as well as technical development progress e.g. HMDs and feedback systems.

Program of the Workshop

Goaö of the Workshop

Goal of the workshop is to give a first overview on the wide field of Virtual Reality and its current technical capabilities. From that, possible application fields will be derived and compared to those already existing in industry. One future important application field, namely the net-based virtual teamwork, will be further elaborated in the group.
In order to understand the necessity to support such a net-based collaboration by means of information technology, an introducing exercise on net-based teamwork will introduce the topic. Based on the results, the approaches of a virtual project room will be elaborated and discussed in the group. It will be also elaborated, how the virtual project room can be applied to different business processes.
The results of the team sessions will be opposed to existing research in order to derive new input for ongoing and new Ph.D. works.

Intended public: PhD and MSc students in Interaction Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer Graphics.

Affiliation: Student/researchers from Chalmers and ETH, but people from other universities/industry are also welcome.

Teachers: Andreas Kunz, ETH Zurich (main teacher), Thomas Kennel, ETH Zurich, Morten Fjeld, Chalmers.

Issues to be covered: History of Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR), Technologies of VR/AR, Industrial Applications, Virtual Collaboration.

Teaching forms: Lectures, Exercises, Brainstorming/Discussion

Estimated teaching time : 4-5 days, each day 8 hours.
