The 2017 Stereopsia conference in Brussels was a fantastic opportunity to see some ground-breaking work in VR & immersive storytelling, and to meet the people creating the technology & language of the new, transformative, medium. I also enjoyed the opportunity to talk about the role of women in building both the technology & the content to an audience that cared about the issue. I hope to see more recognition of the role of women and other underrepresented groups.
Stereopsia is a unique event that gathers worldwide professionals to present the state-of the-art image industry at a perfect time of year. Hosted in Brussels (Belgium), it is an event where you can meet active people from the whole industry. The professional conferences are of high quality and give an overview of the production, and give the participants new perspectives for content creation, from stereoscopic movie to immersive content.
The experience of participating in Stereopsia 2017 was excellent. I had the opportunity to participate in 2 activities: as a researcher at the Scientific conference on 3D immersion, and as a filmmaker in the Booster. The global dimension of the event is its greatest virtue, since it allows professionals and researchers from all over the world to deepen their knowledge on audiovisual immersion. The organization was impeccable, leaving a very good memory. It makes you want to return!
