The theme of the meeting is “The Story of IMMERSe: Past and Future”. We had set this theme quite some time ago, but we were in Ottawa at SSHRC this past Monday addressing new Partnership Grant holders, and we learned that what SSHRC truly needs is a strong research-activities-growth story for the federal government. So it is now a perfect time to look at the substantial activity that has occurred, how we have made excellent use of the funds, and where we go for the second three years of the project. Furthermore, given that IMMERSe was very largely responsible for the existence of The Games Institute space at Waterloo, we wanted to showcase the space and its CFI-funded (via IMMERSe) immersive lab called WatGAME.
