Immersive vs Non-imersive systems in Interactive Visualization

The workshop theme is oriented on the application of Virtual Reality equipment within Unreal Engine. The focus is placed on the differences between immersive and non-immersive systems, which are tested and tried live, by the participants. The workshop would consists of two parts. In the theoretical part, the focus would be on the development of interactive scenes in Unreal Engine through the Virtual Reality and First Person template, as well as on optimization and preparation of the 3D models for the scene, while in the practical part the participants will have the opportunity to use the equipment and thus feel the immersive and non-immersive nature of interactive visualization.
