Location for self-organized sessions yes
Self-organized session notes We plan to make of the assembly a place for meeting people interested in getting involved with the project, bringing their own expertise/perspective for the development of the project. We will do an introductory session on the 27th and offer an overview of the project as well as the coming developments of the project.

These include : - streaming first person video - 360° video filmmaking - interpersonal biofeedback - multisensory perception tricks

From there will hopefully unfold a hackathon where people are invited to bring their own ideas to the project and be given the chance to experiment. This also includes non-techical people.

Note: The location on the map does not represent a reservation of a location and might not represent the actual place, where a assembly can be found. The place can be changed within the form of the assembly by anyone. It will be updated by the assembly itself on day 0 or day 1 as soon as the actual location is known.
Orga contact
Brings VR headsets (Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift), machine to be another sets, cameras, sensors, arduinos.
Character of assembly just a gathering space
Seats needed 15
Extra seats 10
Assembly specification want quiet place, want bright light, want low light, want taking pictures allowed
Planning notes - public access is nice to be able to have people spontaneously join, but should allow to work in relatively quiet environment (we will possibly be working with audio).

- bright light is absolutely necessary.

past congress review

The Machine to be Another, developed by BeAnotherLab and collaborators, is an open-source (CC-BY-NC-SA) interdisciplinary research project at the intersection of art, science and technology. It uses virtual reality and embodiment techniques from neuroscience research that allow to induce the illusion of owning someone else's body to research the relationship between identity and empathy. It has taken the form of various interactive installations where people are invited to swap perspectives and share personal stories. The Machine to be Another has been presented in a wide variety of contexts, from science to art and conflict resolution.

Last year it was presented during a talk at 31C3, and we now wish to meet people interested in contributing and create new research ventures and ideas with them.
