Jonathon Richter

The Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN)’s 2019 Conference Board invites you to submit proposals to host & conduct an iLRN Special Track on June 23rd – June 28th 2019 in London, UK. For this 5th annual conference we seek to continue to advance our shared understanding of the full understanding & skills necessary to make high quality digitally immersive learning experiences. Your specialized focus and immersive learning-related work may thus find richer context and deeper meaning within a Special Track! iLRN seeks to discover, showcase, and share how Immersive Learning experiences are best made and/or applied. Imagine yours & your colleagues’ works as a Special Track to the iLRN 2019 experience!

iLRN encourages & accepts proposals from ALL researchers, artists, and developers focused on digitally enhanced immersive learning – however, special to this year, iLRN is announcing a specific interest in an applied sector as part of iLRN’s Research Agenda. 

iLRN 2019 Conference ThemeHeart of the City: Immersive Learning in Urban Environments. More than 50% of the world’s population now lives in cities. Successfully navigating the colorful and incredibly diverse ecosystems of urban settings requires a refined set of skilled intelligence gained through experience. iLRN’s 2019 Conference in London, UK will be a unique opportunity for architects, urban planners, sustainability experts, and others focused on life and learning in the city to focus on the use of immersive learning environments for improving cities and people’s lives. Sustainable urban living, civic engagement, generative growth, city simulations and forecasts, transportation, food, water, energy, pollution, and waste systems, sensor networks, algorithmic design, and the intersection of virtually every other technological and socioeconomic trend on the planet with respect to urban environments are welcomed at iLRN 2019.  Imagine if cities were designed with Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Cross Reality in mind. Consider how immersive digital environments may be used to help people better understand and create urban spaces.
