ISPR Presence Community Facebook group header

An important announcement:

The International Society for Presence Research has established a new group on Facebook, the ISPR Presence Community group, and you’re invited to join. As the name implies, we hope it enhances the sense of community among those who study, design, market and/or are just interested in any aspect of (tele)presence. I’ll post images and links to stories I find that don’t fit in ISPR Presence News and all group members are encouraged to post anything that they think might be of interest or value to the community. This group is completely public and of course free, and you can join by clicking on the ‘Join’ link on the group’s page, at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ISPRpresencecommunity/; you need not be a member of ISPR or have attended an ISPR conference or other event. If you’re on Facebook, please consider joining us!

A preconference of the 2016 conference of the International Communication Association (ICA)

OVERVIEW

Join us at Kyoto Shigaku Kaikan in Kyoto, Japan for an enlightening and enjoyable conference event two days before the 66th annual conference of the International Communication Association in Fukuoka, 9-13 June.

(Tele)presence is a state or perception in which we overlook or misconstrue the role of technology and feel present in the environments and/or connected to the people or things we experience via technology. It’s increasingly relevant to a wide range of media experiences and application areas. This preconference will introduce the centrality, pervasiveness, value, and power of presence phenomena, theory and research to scholars and practitioners within and beyond communication and deepen and update knowledge for those already familiar with presence.

The event will include a full day of invited and peer reviewed state-of-the-art presentations, and demonstrations; a keynote address from renowned Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University, creator of amazing humanoid robots and co-author of “Human-Robot Interaction in Social Robotics” (2012, CRC Press); and informal discussion, networking and fun. At the end of the day, all attendees are invited to a social dinner at an (affordable) nearby restaurant; we also hope you’ll join us for all or part of a day of demonstration visits and guided sightseeing on June 7 (the day before the event).

Registration is open to anyone and the costs (in addition to ICA fees) are modest: $50.00 USD for academics, $40.00 USD for students, and $90.00 USD for industry. Read more on Call: The Power of Presence: ISPR Preconference for International Communication Association (ICA) 2016 in Japan…

ISPR News: A milestone

IPSR Presence News WordPress screen at 2,999 posts

As managing editor I want to note a milestone: This is the 3,000th post of ISPR Presence News. Combined with the 2,719 posts in its predecessor, the Presence-L listserv, I’ve posted over 5,700 informational items related to (tele)presence since July 1999. See the FAQ for a short explanation of why I’ve done it, but I remain as intrigued with the topic as ever and see amazing things ahead for presence (though maybe not as quickly as some), and for ISPR – watch this space later this week for an announcement about our 2016 conference event and more. Thanks for being part of the ‘presence community’!

Regarding technical snafus (from managing editor Matthew Lombard)

Apologies for yesterday’s (and occasional other) technical failures that have resulted in the inconsistent distribution of ISPR Presence News posts.

I’ll spare you the always frustrating and usually mysterious explanations and just remind you that you can now access posts via individual, daily and weekly digest emails, Facebook, Twitter, RSS feed and/or the ISPR web site. More details are on the subscription page of the ISPR web site and in this FAQ post.
