Call / ISPR News: PRESENCE 2020 changes due to pandemic

[As with so many conferences planned for this summer and fall, ISPR is changing our plans for PRESENCE 2020. We’ll meet online on October 23 via Zoom for presentations and discussions about our usual wide variety of presence topics as well as the many impacts of Coronavirus on presence phenomena now and going forward. We’ll also leave time for informal social interactions. More details are below; feel free to be in touch with any questions.

Please distribute this call through your professional networks, consider submitting your work by the new August 1 deadline, and join us for the first online presence conference this fall. No one would have wished for the surreal, difficult time we’re living through but it’s never been a more interesting and important time to experience and study presence.

Call: PRESENCE 2020, 18th conference of the International Society for Presence Research (ISPR)

CALL FOR PAPERS

PRESENCE 2020
18th conference of the International Society for Presence Research (ISPR)
Orlando, Florida, USA
October 23-25, 2020
https://ispr.info/call-presence-2020

  • Submission deadline: June 1, 2020 (with some flexibility – email us if you need a few extra days)
  • Online submissions should be submitted via EasyChair. 
  • Notification of acceptance decisions: July 1, 2020
  • Finished, camera-ready papers due: October 1, 2020

Coronavirus notice: We have no plans to cancel this in-person conference event but will offer a virtual component for anyone who isn’t able to attend. It would be ironic if presence experts didn’t offer the option for remote participation, and it will represent a valuable opportunity to explore the dynamics of what will be an increasingly common real-world application of presence.

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.… read more. “Call: PRESENCE 2020, 18th conference of the International Society for Presence Research (ISPR)”

ISPR News: PRESENCE 2020!

Big news…! Full details and the official Call for Papers will follow soon but the Board of Directors of ISPR invites you to join the presence community for the 19th PRESENCE conference as we meet next October in Orlando, Florida.

Aside from all the other things to do and see in the area, Orlando is the home of some of the most entertaining and ambitious presence experiences anywhere, at the theme parks of Walt Disney World (including the new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge) and Universal Orlando (including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter). It’s an ideal place to explore both presence theory and practice!

We hope you’ll join us for a rewarding and fun conference event!

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”

Call: A (Free) ‘Virtual’ Panel at PRESENCE 2018: A Discussion About Presence via Telepresence Tech

Call for Participation

A (Free) ‘Virtual’ Panel at PRESENCE 2018:
Presence in Practice: A Discussion about Presence via Telepresence Tech
Monday May 21, 2018
4:15 – 5:30 pm (i.e., 16:15 – 17:30) in Prague (GMT+2)
(click here to see your current local time in Prague)

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 17th 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”
