As a part of the EPSRC National Productivity Investment Fund, the Immersive Technologies Summer School will provide students and young researchers with those essential skills required to embrace immersive technologies, such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). This will be a hands-on course that includes tutorials and project work.
All the activities will take place at the Department of Engineering Science of the University of Oxford, from Monday 25th June to Wednesday 27th June. Each day, the course will run from 9am to 6pm.
It is expected that after three days of full-time and intensive course, attendees will have the basic understanding of app development for immersive experiences. The final goal is to develop a software application which will be presented at a showcase event and, ideally, developed further after the Summer School.
The Immersive Technologies Summer School is primarily aimed at postgraduate students funded by EPSRC since the initiative is supported by the National Productivity Investment Fund. However, depending on availability, we will try to give more people the opportunity to attend the course. It is open to teams as well as individuals who fulfil at least one of the two following requirements:
- Work on a research project funded by EPSRC.
- Have an idea involving immersive technologies, but lack experience to implement it.
Thanks to the support provided by EPSRC, Enterprising Oxford and Vive, the course is free of charge, but places are limited: to attend the Summer School, please register by filling the form on the page linked to below. The application is simple and only takes a few minutes. Should you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail.
