Limited Capacity seats available

Our research project on ``Embodied Cognitive Experiences'' aims to systematically study the immersive VR medium from a visual perception viewpoint. Its main goal is to: "conduct evidence-based research in visuo-auditory and visuo-locomotive perception (involving multi-modal physiological data) aimed at studying the (embodied) reception and interpretation of dynamic visuospatial imagery and sensorimotor interactions in humans, and their implications in designing cognitive assistive technologies concerned with the synthesis of user experience in everyday, professional, and creative performance."

The demonstration will: (1). present a range of immersive and / or VR (narrative) media specifically developed as a test-bed for experiments in visual perception research; (2). illustrate select experiments focussing on: (2a). change blindness, and continuity in immersive VR; (2b). immersive sound based localisation of events \& objects; (2c). experiments designed to test the impact of visual cues on people's attention; and (3). present preliminary results as part of a large-scale experiment

The demonstration will illustrate the general applicability of methods developed for future evidence-based (immersive) experience design projects; a particular emphasis will be on the open-source accessibility and potential use of the developed experimental material.
