    Nowadays the 3D world has become more realistic and research has been focused on 3D interaction with specific interests in natural user interfaces and tangible interfaces. Since interaction is closely related to perception, sensory interfaces are continuously evolving for a perception that is now multi-sensory. On the other hand, using smart phones and tablets the augmented perception of real world is becoming more and more common; however, several questions subsist on engineering of these new systems.

    The main aim of the Virtual Reality Summer School is to propose a privileged moment for stimulating discussions and exchanging scientific experiences and technical results related to the Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies.

    The Summer School is open to Ph.D. and Master students, post-doctoral researchers and academic or industrial researchers. Researchers of university and industry who want to present the results of their projects or give a lecture on a specific topic concerning the virtual and augmented reality technologies are welcome. Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit their research-in-progress presentation during the summer school. Master students are strongly encouraged to participate at the school.

    Lectures will span topics from virtual environments and augmented reality applications to 3D user interfaces and required technology to enable these environments to a wide range of applications.

    The main thematic areas of the Virtual Reality Summer School are:

    – medicine
    – cultural heritage and arts
    – architecture
    – education
    – industry and military
    – games and serious games
    – interaction and presence in VE

2015 International Year of Light

Energy Production, Storage and Conversion from Molecules to Devices at the Crossroads of Physical Chemistry

  • 2015 International Year of Light

    June 8, 2015 – June 12, 2015

    Energy Production, Storage and Conversion
    from Molecules to Devices at the Crossroads of Physical Chemistry

    Otranto

    The National School of Physical Chemistry will take place in Otranto (Southern Italy, Lecce district) from 8th to 12th June 2015. Its primary goal is to discuss the multidisciplinary theoretical and technological aspects concerning fields with relevance for energy production, conversion, transmission and harvesting. In details the aim of the School is to present the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives for different approaches applied to the generation and storage of renewable and sustainable energy. For this purpose, basic lectures and topical seminars will be given by some of the most recognized academic experts, crossing the relevant skills from physical chemistry with those of different areas of chemistry.

    Energy production and consumption has complex economic, geopolitical, security, and environmental impacts, and the European energy supply situation is very inhomogeneous. There are countries with nearly 100% CO2-free, others with exclusively fossil-based energy production. Some countries have used the last years to approach or even meet the Kyoto goals, others have moved away from them; some invest heavily in Renewable Energies, whereas in other countries they do not yet play a major role. Despite this disparity, Europe has well defined energy and environmental goals. Therefore a detailed presentation and discussion about European energy policy will be also dealt with. In order to fulfill the ambitious European goals, extensive R&D in energy technologies is needed and this is a tremendous chance for students in all technical areas.

    The School will cover major fields in detailed lectures but it will also serve as a forum of discussion. It will be a great opportunity for students and postdoctoral fellows to meet with and learn from their peers and established experts in a friendly atmosphere, reaping benefit in terms of enthusiasm, knowledge and new ideas and benefitting the future of mankind.

    In case you are interested in energy technology or even working in this field, we would encourage you to sign up.
