EMOTIONAL ERGONOMICS OF IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT


Description

The Summer School on Emotional Ergonomics of Immersive Virtual Environment (EEIVE) will offer an interdisciplinary training program for PhD students and early-career professionals, with the goal of enhancing knowledge on themes related to emotional ergonomics of immersive virtual environments. Since its inception, ergonomics has helped make technological advancement and innovation more accessible to humankind. Recent years have seen a real paradigm shift in the field of cognitive ergonomics, which studies the interaction between the human cognitive system and information processing tools. As technology develops, the creation of virtual and immersive environments presents fresh difficulties for anybody wishing to research human-machine interaction in these settings. The new paradigm shift relates to the study of how the human emotional system interacts with virtual spaces, which is known as emotional ergonomics of virtual environments. In other words, ergonomics as a design for the body has given way to cognitive ergonomics, a design for thinking, and then to emotional ergonomics, a design for people's inner states. The Summer School on Emotional Ergonomic of Immersive Virtual Environment (EEIVE) aims at deepening theoretical and methodological domains linked to human-computer interaction with a specific focus on using multisensory approaches for researching the human experience. It will include lectures and group-work sessions led by scholars of national and international standing.

Location:

Milan, University of Milano-Bicocca
