A scientific paper based on GuestXR research is presented at ISMAR 2022

Yan Moullec, project partner from Inria and PhD student from the University of Rennes, has presented a scientific article based on GuestXR knowledge at the 21st IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2022), held on October 17th-21st at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel in Singapore.

The paper, entitled Multi-sensory display of self-avatar’s physiological state: virtual breathing and heart beating can increase sensation of effort in VR, explores the multi-sensory display of self-avatars’ physiological state in Virtual Reality (VR), as a means to enhance the connection between the users and their avatar.

The presentation of this article, which has been also contributed by Anatole Lécuyer, Justine Saint-Aubert, Julien Manson and Mélanie Cogné, from Iria, was included within the session “Avatars & Agency” on October 19th.

This was the first time that the ISMAR event was held in the Southeast of Asia and in hybrid mode. This year’s edition achieved historically high numbers in terms of papers and attendees.

The IEEE ISMAR is the leading international academic conference in the fields of Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality. The symposium is organized and supported by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE VGTC and ACM SIGGRAPH. The first ISMAR conference was held in 2002 in Darmstadt, Germany. The creation of the conference emerged from the fusion of two former academic events dedicated to this research field: the International Symposium on Augmented Reality (ISAR) and the International Symposium on Mixed Reality (ISMR).
