Conferences & Workshops

As part of both my academic and professional work, I often speak at conferences and organize workshops, trainings, and hackathons. These talks typical focus on my work with multiuser VR applications, but also include topics broader and more specific.

In addition to participating and organizing programs within conferences, I have also taken the responsibility in recent years to host physical satellite for international XR cultural events as well as to work in the production of such events, such as VRDays Europe, SXSW, and the Venice International Film Festival. My production roles include work as a member of event production teams, such as VRDays and Venice, as well as work undertaken on behalf of my company Raptor Dance Studios or my university’s lab.
