About the Summit
The objective of the European Immersive Education (iED) Summit is to bring together researchers, developers, educators, decision makers, and industry from all over the world. It consists of scientific presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions and break-out sessions. Fairly new is the hands-on demo stream, which combines a short paper presentation with an extended hands-on presentation for the attendees. Following a bottom-up way, special tracks and workshops cover emerging topics and trends suggested and organized by the community and focused groups. Also speed sessions enable participants to present an aspect of their work or interest in a fun and speedy way. The summit will further offer a platform to explore research collaborations and give international research consortiums room to share their results.
Continuing the success of the conference series, the Fourth European Immersive Education (E-iED) Summit is focusing on "Science meets Business - From Innovative Research to Successful Services and Products”. It covers broad aspects from emerging trends and technologies, sound research and best practices, to successful products and services. iED Summits feature virtual worlds, learning and motivational games, educational simulations, mixed/augmented reality, and related learning and teaching tools, techniques, technologies, and standards.
For the main conference, topics of interest in the context of immersive environments include, but are not limited to, the following:
Immersive Techniques, Systems and Devices
Behavioral and Pedagogical Analysis
Games and Entertainment
A Glance into the Future: Innovations, Challenges and Applications
Art and Creativity
E-iED 2014 will take place between the 24th and 26th of November 2014 in Vienna, Austria. Vienna, the main capital of Austria, located in the center of Europe, is well connected by its international airport and long distance train connections. Vienna is not only well known as a conference city but is also famous for its cultural variety as well as the quality and diversity of the cuisine.
