TIIU POLDMA is full professor at the School of Design in the Faculty of Environmental Design at the Université de Montréal. Dr. Poldma’s research expertise lies in the creation of spaces in flexible and temporal environments using light, color and design elements through changing human user experiences of interior space, and adapting the environment for various populations.

MEL SLATER is an ICREA Research Professor at the University of Barcelona in the Faculty of Psychology. He has been Professor of Virtual Environments at University College London since 1997 in the Department of Computer Science. He has been involved in research in virtual reality since the early 1990s. He has contributed to the scientific study of virtual reality and to technical development of this field. He has also contributed to the use of virtual reality in other fields, notably psychology (in relation to clinical psychology – studies of paranoia – and also social psychology) and the cognitive neuroscience of how the brain represents the body.

JUDITH E. DEUTSCH is a professor of physical therapy in the Department of Rehabilitation & Movement Sciences at Rutgers University. She is also the director of the Research in Virtual Environments and Rehabilitation Sciences Lab. Her research has focused on the development and testing of virtual reality technologies to improve mobility, balance and fitness of individuals with neurologic conditions. More recently she has worked on knowledge translation related to adoption of video games in clinical practice.
