This 360° video presents impressions and highlights from the 2016 “Workshop on Virtual and Augmented Reality” of the Special Interest Group V&AR of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. Best experience is with a mobile phone and Google Cardboard/Daydream View or Samsung GearVR. On the desktop you might use the mouse to look around.

More than 180 participants from research and industry were attracted by the two-day program (https://cit-ec.de/de/vrar2016/programm). Particular highlights were the hands-on sessions of industrial partners and about 20 demonstrations of current research projects, as well as a 360° 3D short movie (http://uni360.de/).

The workshop has been organized by Dr. Thies Pfeiffer and Dr. Julia Fröhlich from CITEC, Bielefeld University, together with Prof. Dr. Rolf Kruse from Erfurt University of Applied Sciences.
