ICC to contribute to Sino-British workshop on the wellbeing applications of VR / AR technologies

Added on Thursday, June 28th, 2018

This week, ICC Research Associate, Rafaela Neiva Ganga, will be in Xi’an, China, to present findings from the ongoing ICC research programme, Crossing Boundaries, at a workshop held as part of the Edutainment ’18 12th International Conference on E-Learning and Games.

Organised by Hangzhou Normal University and Liverpool John Moores University, hosted by X’ian University of Technology and facilitated by the British Council, the workshop aims to investigate the latest developments in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications for health and wellbeing —  technologies which may potentially be key to achieving sustainable healthcare development and the reduction of healthcare costs in both the UK and China.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for early career researchers, as well as practitioners, from the UK and China to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations. Proceedings from the workshop will later be published in Multimedia Tools and Applications, an international journal published by Springer.
