A monthly seminar on immersive technologies, interactive experiences, and data
The IMMERSED seminar series is an exploration into how immersive technology and new modalities for manipulating and understanding data are shaping innovations across science, engineering, and art. These events—a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials—will offer a deep dive into a capability or set of capabilities and how they can be applied to various fields.
IMMERSED is sponsored by the MIT.nano Immersion Lab, which provides space, tools, and a platform to connect the physical to the digital, joining researchers through creative projects that bridge multiple disciplines.
Each IMMERSED session will last approximately one hour—45-minute presentations followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer session. Suggestions for guest speakers and/or topics can always be sent to email@example.com.
