Collaboration Special Interest Group

Time 05/17/16 07:15AM-08:30AM

Room Dupage (3rd Floor)

Session Abstract

This year's SIG will focus on the challenges of setting up, running, and sustaining Virtual Reality systems. With a panel of experts in the field, we will hear and discuss issues of justification, funding, collaboration, marketing, outreach, and other issues aside from the technological challenges.

Our ongoing theme is why aren't advanced real-time collaboration tools being used more widely? What are some examples of projects that are successfully using them? What are the advanced technologies that warrant our experimentation and pilot use? Come share your thoughts and experiences and listen to ours as we try to create a community of users through this Special Interest Group devoted to promoting the successful adoption of advanced collaboration tools.
