Summit for application-oriented Virtual Reality

ICIDO Summit 2008 – Ideas for virtual collaboration
(PresseBox) (Stuttgart, ) The ICIDO Summit ranks amongst the leading events devoted to application-oriented virtual reality in Europe. This year, the conference, which is being held from 25 to 26 September in the Millennium Hotel in Stuttgart, focuses mainly on virtual cooperation. With the slogan “Get together. Eye and decide.” an international programme with illustrious speakers from all over Europe and USA, including Joe Barkai of IDC as keynote speaker, awaits conference attendees.

Thinking together, working together. Really and virtually. What are the next steps? Where does it go from here? Pie in the sky or a real vision? What do companies really need? Which visions can be transformed into practicable solutions ? Anyone for whom these questions are relevant, should consider attending this year’s ICIDO Summit. With the congress focus ”Get together. Eye and decide.“ ICIDO picks up a trend that is playing an increasingly significant role in everyday company life: virtual cooperation beyond departmental, location and corporate bounds.

As keynote speaker ICIDO was able to enlist Joe Barkai of IDC, an leading analyst for product lifecycle management. Speakers from Daimler AG, Jaguar Land Rover and further prominent companies will be reporting on their experience of virtual reality in practical operation. ICIDO will also be presenting the Visual Decision Platform (VDP) 2008 with many new features. The accompanying specialist exhibition gives attendees the opportunity to find out about products and services in the virtual reality field.

In the evening programme, everything revolves around 3D worlds as well. ICIDO will be showing the new concert film entitled “U2 3D” which was filmed with high quality 3D digital cameras. The new technology succeeds in capturing the live atmosphere at concerts and gives viewers the impression of being ”in the middle of it“ – similarly to a immersive environment. A further highlight of the event is the ICIDO Virtual Reality Excellence Awards Ceremony which will take place during the gala evening. This prize is bestowed by ICIDO in recognition of outstanding practice-oriented applications in virtual product development.
