Location:  Aalto Studios, Otakaari 7, Espoo


Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR, AR) meet in the busy intersection of computer graphics, vision, and human-computer interaction. They have countless applications in storytelling, visual art, visualization, modelling, telepresence, to name a few, with clear potential to transform research, art, and even society at large.

This event brings together Aalto scientists and artists researchers interested in Virtual and Augmented Reality from both technical and applied perspectives, with the aims to showcase existing research, demos, and art, and to connect people across Aalto to foster future collaborations.
