Dear colleagues, welcome to the

TOpics in Psychological

Virtual Reality technologies are becoming mainstream tools, being more accessible than ever before. For psychological research, VR can introduce novel manipulations and unseen experimental innovation. VR allows to explore human behavior and cognition by immersing sensory inputs in multifaceted and controlled ways. The VECTOR workshop will bring both VR experts and enthusiasts together, providing a space for exchange and inspiration.

The workshop will consist of talk and poster sessions, as well as hands-on tutorials on the various implementations of VR. It will be held at the historical University Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Tübingen from July 27th to 29th, 2016.

We are looking forward to welcome you at the VECTOR workshop in Tübingen!

Best regards,
The Organizing Team
Johannes Lohmann, Philipp Schroeder, Christian Plewnia, Martin Butz
