30 May - 1 June 2018 in Santa Clara, CA, USA

Join IEEE Digital Reality and IEEE-SA at AWE USA 2018 for a series of events, including two panel sessions:

Immersive Experiences and Applications
At the forefront of digital technologies is a blend of virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, 360 degrees, immersive, and other future potential reality spaces. All have the potential to impact and transform many industries, changing, and immersing the world dramatically. Subject matter expert speakers from a diverse range of areas based upon their experiences, will comment on current and past "reality" implementations, experiences, implications to humans, and share an outlook to the future. Topics are not limited to the technical aspects, but also the social, ethical, and policy impacts.

Ethical Considerations of Immersive Realities
Complimenting the session on "Immersive Experiences and Applications", this talk will facilitate a discussion with subject matter experts who will take a deep dive on the ethical and social considerations of virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, 360 degrees, immersive, and other future potential reality spaces.
