IMMERSION 2014 overview

Join us at IMMERSION 2014 this June!

Building on the success of the previous 8 years of Immersive Education (iED) conferences, the world's leading experts in immersion convene June 6-8 in Los Angeles California for IMMERSION 2014. Hosted by The Getty (J. Paul Getty Museum) and Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution and the Western USA Chapter of the Immersive Education Initiative (iED West), IMMERSION 2014 is open to the global academic and business communities, the general public, and experts in immersion and immersive technologies.

IMMERSION 2014 addresses the personal and cultural impact of digital technologies such as wearable computing (e.g., Google Glass and Samsung Gear), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MXR), mechanical and neural interfaces, affective computing (systems that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human feelings and emotions), neuro-gaming technologies (that are used to create adaptive and radically compelling game experiences), 3D printing, personal robotics, virtual currencies and economies (universal digital micropayments, Bitcoin and related cryptocurrencies), telepresence, virtual worlds, simulations, game-based learning and training systems, immersive MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and fully immersive environments such as caves and domes. 

For the first time since its inception the global iED Summit features an exciting new module-based conference format and price structure. IMMERSION 2014 modules include Arts & Culture, Mechanizing Humans, Humanizing Machines, a screening and panel discussion of the movie HER, Immersive Teaching & Learning, and Business and Economics.
