Events and Conferences

We organize and participate in several events throughout the year. Our main event each year is CIVIT Technology Day, which brings together renowned speakers and experts from the industry and academia sharing insights on immersive tech trends. In our previous Tech Days, we have covered topics such as Motion DeconstructedVR Walkthrough and the Art and Tech of 360° Video. You can find all of the Tech Day presentations on our YouTube channel.

We also host visitors and have demos in different events frequently. Furthermore, CIVIT can be a partner in organizing events and conferences. We have co-organized conferences such as ELFI 2019 (European Light Field Imaging Workshop) and 3DTV Conference 2018If you are interested in collaborating with us, feel free to contact us

This year, we are co-organizing MMSP 2020 (IEEE 22nd Workshop on Multimedia and Signal Processing) in Tampere, 21–23 September.
