Hello everyone. I’m Ryo Akiyama, D1 student.
We attended APMAR 2017 (Asia Pacific Workshop on Mixed and Augmented Reality) on 3rd July. This year, APMAR was held in Beijing Institute of Technology. From IMD lab, Qirui and I attended to this conference this year.
The conference began with Keynote Speech by Prof. Nassir Navab. The talk was about Augmented Reality(AR) application for medical field. Recently, many high quality medical equipments have been invented, but their interfaces are too complex and difficult to use freely. Prof. Navab thinks AR interfaces are very powerful for solving this problem. In addition, we can visualize inside of our body by using AR, and it is helpful for surgery or education.
In oral session, we listened to many talks about recent AR, MR research. There are 22 oral presentation and 6 posters, and both Qirui and I also presented in oral session. I presented about AR interfaces for IoT applications which we discussed in workshop between NAIST and KAIST. Qirui presented about his own research about depth map regularization using curvelet domain.
I felt that APMAR is suitable conference for sharing research information and discussing. Next APMAR in 2018 will be held in Taiwan. I will do my research project hard in order to attend next APMAR.
Thank you for reading!!
