About iLRN’s Annual International ConferenceiLRN’s annual conference provides an intensive face-to-face opportunity for the emerging professional community of immersive learning to collaborate and create the immersive learning future. ILRN conferences offer knowledge exchange and open discussions in scientific presentation streams, poster sessions and panels complemented with hands-on demonstrations. The iLRN Conference is, itself, designed to be an immersive learning environment making great use of the physical location and stocking it with immersive learning experiences across the Augmented and Virtual Reality spectrum. We seek members of the iLRNetwork, itself, to propose Workshops and Special Tracks throughout covering emerging topics and trends relevant to the community.Continuing the previous success of iLRN events, this international conference series spans the topic range from innovative research, technologies and tools to successful services and products of immersive environments to foster learning, training and other activities in motivational and engaging ways. The objective is to uncover and discuss emerging trends and technologies, sound research and best practices, successful products and services within an international and interdisciplinary community. This includes but not limits its focus to virtual and augmented worlds, learning and motivational games, educational simulations, mixed/augmented reality, and related learning and teaching tools, techniques, technologies, and standards.Topics of interest in the context of immersive environments for the main conference include:

  • Immersive Technologies, Systems and Devices
  • Natural and Built Environments as Immersive Learning Spaces
  • Cognitive and Pedagogical Analysis
  • STEM Education
  • The Psychological and Embodied Nature of Immersion
  • Learning and Training Applications
