WorldViz VR will teach participants how to set up and perform Multi-User eye tracking studies in VR using Python and a GUI based configurator. We will explain drag and drop methods for adding 360 videos and 3D models, and demonstrate analytics methods with associated templates. At the end of this session participants will know how to insert their own 3D geometry or 360 video in VR scenes, generate 3D visualizations of the scene and gaze path, extract gaze intersects, view an interactive session replay, save out raw data, and modify the template using their own target objects and parameters. We will also show how you can easily customize and add unique metaverse level avatars and perform interactions across remote locations or local LAN in an eye tracking study.

This social event is open to any VSS member who is, knows, or would like to meet a Canadian Vision Scientist! Join us for casual discussions with students and faculty from several Canadian Institutes or to just satisfy your curiosity as to why we in the North are so polite and good natured, Eh? We particularly encourage trainees and scientists who would like to learn about the various opportunities available through York’s Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program. So grab your toques and your double-double and come connect with your favorite Canucks. This event will feature free food and refreshments, with a complimentary beverage for the first 50 attendees. This event is sponsored by the York Centre for Vision Research and VISTA, which is funded in part by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF)

A whirlwind tour of data visualization insights from VSS members: share a tool, a research result, an effective graph, an ineffective graph. The event features a series of “micro-talks” where speakers give 2-minute presentations.
If you are interested in contributing a micro-talk, please contact Jeremy at .

LGBTQ students are disproportionately likely to drop out of science early. Potential causes include the lack of visible role models and the absence of a strong community. This social event is one small step towards filling that gap and will bring awareness to continuing challenges for queer scientists.

A keynote address will be given by George Sperling, Distinguished Professor, University of California, Irvine.
More information about the workshop, including how to register, can be found at the workshop website https://www.purdue.edu/conferences/events/modvis/. The registration fees are $140 (regular) and $70 (student), which cover audio-visual expenses, coffee and snacks, and the VSS satellite fee.
The workshop features contributed presentations that are longer than standard VSS talks, with interactive discussion. Contributions are solicited on all aspects of modeling and simulation.

This satellite event will provide a tutorial overview of The Experiential Learning Lab (TELLab), a web-based system that allows students to create and run their own psychology experiments, either by copying and modifying one of the many existing experiments, or creating a new one entirely from scratch. The TELLab project was begun a number of years ago by Ken Nakayama and others at Harvard University, and continues today under Ken’s leadership from his new position as adjunct professor at UC Berkeley. To date, TELLab has been used by around 20 instructors and 5000 students.
After a short introduction, TELLab gurus will demonstrate the process of creating and running an experiment, exporting the data and analyzing the results. Complete details can be found on TELLab’s satellite information website: http://vss.tellab.org. Potential attendees are encouraged to visit the site at http://lab.tellab.org beforehand to create their own account and explore the system on their own.

The presentation and teaching will be provided as a remote meeting with screen-sharing. A live camera view will allow participants to observe the eye tracker setup and operation for several leading eye tracked VR headsets.
