  • Welcome and intro
  • News from Team Visualization about XR-Lab and 3D Theater
  • Graph2VR: Explore Linked Data in 3D - Alexander Kellmann (Genomics Coordination Center, UMCG/UG)
    Linked Data is a best practice method to share and reuse data, particularly complex knowledge graphs. Visual processing of information and structures in large graphs comes naturally to people, so the development of tools for visualising Linked Data has become a field of research interest in recent years. Virtual Reality offers way more space and possibilities to expand force-directed graphs than a 2D computer screen. We reviewed existing solutions and then created a prototype, Graph2VR, to interactively work with graphs in Virtual Reality based on the SPARQL query language.
  • Building Bounce Back: Mathijs Nijland en Bart Lestestuiver (University Medical Center Groningen)
    Stress-resilience is important in many settings. For example, to ensure durable employability of healthcare professionals, or to improve the outcome of psychiatric disease by decreasing the vulnerability to daily stressors that could otherwise cause a relapse. A VR stress-resilience intervention, named Bounce Back (BB), has been developed, consisting of a stress-inducing VR scenario, in which users learn to apply stress-management techniques and control their stress response. The stress response and impact of the scenario is measured through questionnaires, HRV and skin conductance monitoring and cortisol swabs.

13.00 uur - 14.00 uur Smitsborg

  • Extra demo's in the XR-Lab and the 3D-Theater


The XR HUB organizes a (virtual) meeting every two months to share knowledge and experiences about the development and use of applications of Extended Reality (augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), virtual reality (VR) and 3D).
