Invited Session 2: VR, AR, and MR Technologies in Education

Session Chair:

Carsten Lecon, Aalen University, Germany. (


Virtual 3D Learning Environments are not only used for the visualization of complex learning matters, but get increasing importance in learning environments (currently, accelerated by the Corona pandemic). Students for example act as avatars in artificially generated worlds, in which they learn, develop, and present simultaneously. Full immersion is possible by so called head mounted displays. Nowadays, these are less expensive, so that many users can use this technique. Furthermore, Augmented Reality (AR) und Mixed Reality (MR) applications become more and more important in industrial application – and also in learning environments.

Topics include but are not limited to:

● Virtual 3D Environments for collaborative learning;
● Conversational Agents in virtual environments;
● AR and VR Learning Settings for Higher Education and School Education;
● Teaching VR/ AR/ MR techniques in Higher Education;
● Didactic and pedagogical aspects when designing VR/ AR/ MR applications;
● Evaluation of AR/ VR / MR applications;
● Kinetosis in VR environments.

Invited Session 3: Machine Learning and Its Applications in Social Science

Session Chair:

WENG Yang, Sichuan University, China. (


Social scientists find themselves in an era of abundant data, increasingly turning to machine learning tools to extract valuable insights from datasets of varying sizes. This session aims to elucidate how the integration of machine learning into the realm of social sciences necessitates a reevaluation of not only the application of machine learning methods but also the adoption of best practices within the field. Diverging from the conventional applications of machine learning in computer science and statistics, its utilization in social scientific endeavors involves the exploration of new concepts, quantification of their prevalence, evaluation of causal relationships, and the formulation of predictive models. The wealth of data and available resources facilitates a departure from the deductive approach traditionally employed in social sciences, ushering in a more sequential, interactive, and ultimately inductive approach to the process of inference.
