This course is about the fascinating world of human visual, auditory and tactile perception and the use of its potential in designing novel interfaces for interacting with virtual worlds and augmented realities. Part 1 (February) will be given by Peter Werkhoven and covers mostly multimodal (multisensory) perception and interaction, plus related aspects when interacting with virtual worlds. Part 2 (March-April) will be given by Wolfgang Hürst, addressing further aspects of virtual and augmented reality. It will also be complemented with a practical project. For further information about this course please refer to the course's website.

Note for older students: if you have already taken the seminar INFOMMI, you will not be able to take this course due to the high content overlap with part 1.

Literature:There will be no textbook but we will use journal articles and conference papers instead. These will be announced in the lectures and on the course's website.
