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)”

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.
