An ISPR Presence News milestone

An ISPR Presence News milestone

I’m not much for celebrating milestones or trumpeting accomplishments, but I thought it was worth noting here that today marks the 5000th post on ISPR Presence News in the 10 years since October 2009. I’ve selected and formatted nearly all of them, half presence news items and half calls for papers/chapters/etc. and position announcements. Add the 2746 presence posts on the predecessor listserv Presence-L between July 1999 and October 2009 and I’ve posted over 7600 presence items in just over 20 years.

There’s no financial compensation and it doesn’t count much toward academic service, but I get great satisfaction from keeping the presence community, and myself, informed about at least a subset of the many diverse and innovative ideas, theories, projects, products, and events related to – and the people creating and studying – presence (even when that term isn’t used).… read more. “An ISPR Presence News milestone”

ISPR News: PRESENCE 2018 Conference Program

[We’re looking forward to seeing many of you in Prague in two weeks for PRESENCE 2018; the conference program, which emphasizes collective knowledge development through not just presentations but informal discussions, some over good food and during sightseeing (!), is below.

It’s not too late to join us, in person or virtually: Online registration is available via EventBrite and if you can’t be in Prague, join us for a (free) ‘virtual’ discussion about presence via telepresence tech.

If you’re already registered, please complete the Attendee Sightseeing and Meal Choices Survey before May 11. 

All questions welcome…

Email your interest in participating by Sunday May 20, 2018

We often joke about how as telepresence scholars we have to travel around the world – with great financial cost, physical and emotional strain, lost time, and damage to the environment – to discuss technologies designed to allow people to avoid having to travel to meet face-to-face. We also take for granted that meeting in person precludes the participation of those who aren’t able to join us in person.

At PRESENCE 2018, the 18th conference of the International Society for Presence Research (ISPR) in Prague, Czech Republic, we’ve scheduled a unique panel discussion designed to consider the current status and future potential of visual collaboration technologies while we actually use telepresence technology to include some of our colleagues who can’t be in Prague with us.… read more. “Call: A (Free) ‘Virtual’ Panel at PRESENCE 2018: A Discussion About Presence via Telepresence Tech”

OVERVIEW

Telepresence, often shortened to 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.

Following a series of 17 successful Presence conference events (http://ispr.info/presence-conferences/previous-conferences/), PRESENCE 2018 will retain the single-track format and enjoyable social environment of previous conferences while featuring an expanded variety of paper and poster sessions, panel discussions, keynote presentations, hands-on demonstrations of presence applications/services/projects, and informal discussion, networking and fun. Members of both academic and industry communities are welcome.… read more. “Call: PRESENCE 2018, 18th conference of the International Society for Presence Research (ISPR)”
