ARIVE Lecture Series

Virtual and Augmented Reality (XR) will shape the future of virtually every sector in business and society. It is therefore important to develop a deep and informed understanding about the technological, conceptual, and practical implications of XR.

This lecture series organised by the HCI lab at the University of Otago (www.hci.otago.ac.nz) presents lectures given by leading XR experts from New Zealand and Australia as part of their ARIVE consortium activities. The lectures are delivered via zoom and will be recorded.

Holger Regenbrecht (Coordinator), Tobias Langlotz
