The 2015 Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Conference and Expo is just around the corner, so we’ve taken a look at what is shaping up to be a packed schedule. We’ve also got $100 discount codes for all Road to VR readers!
SVVR’s second Conference and Expo is making every effort to try and deliver on its promise to be “bigger and better than ever” in 2015. For a start, the organisers have significantly upsized the venue, this year holding it at the San Jose Convention Center, CA, boasting 43,000 square feet of floor space.
The conference agenda is now taking shape, with highlights including workshops by Oculus and Leap Motion and talks and panel discussions featuring an array of VR industry luminaries.
Valve’s Joe Ludwig is set to talk Open VR and NASA’s Evelyn Miralles on their use of VR for spacewalk training in the 90s. Other speakers include Brad Herman from Dreamworks Animation, nVidia‘s Nathan Reed, Yuval Boger from Sensics / OSVR and High Fidelity‘s Philip Rosedale and many, many more.
And as if we needed any more proof that the mainstream consumer electronics industry is jumping on the virtual reality juggernaut, Samsung Developer Connection are now platinum sponsors of the SVVR 2015 Conference and Expo and will give a keynote talk to open the event.
