SIGGRAPH 2017, billed as being the world’s leading annual interdisciplinary educational experience showcasing the latest in computer graphics and interactive techniques, will host what we’re told is a highly diverse array of new Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality projects from around the world during its upcoming annual conference.
SIGGRAPH 2017, which marks the 44th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, will be held July 30 to August 3 2017 in Los Angeles.
A relatively young program within the SIGGRAPH conference, VR Village features VR and AR installations that are both content-driven and highly interactive.
The venue offers attendees the ability to explore the fascinating potential of brand-new VR and AR formats for shared experiences, engaging audiences, and powering real-world applications in health, education, entertainment, design, and gaming.
“Our jury selected content for this year’s VR Village that would be ‘hands-on’ and that focuses on the experience itself rather than the technology,” says Denise Quesnel, 2017 VR Village Chair. “In this way, we will be offering conference attendees the chance to explore the capabilities and functionalities of each project in context. Projects that include performative elements and social experiences will be featured, along with multi-user experiences that are highly collaborative.”
