Abstract/Description

The paper describes the main themes of a recently funded research project
under the European Community�s Future and Emerging Technologies
�Presence� initiative. The aim of the research is to develop new tools for
empirical and theoretical studies of presence based on the concept of the
observer�s embodiment in the computationally created virtual environment.
The approach will be based on true-to-life visual and auditory information
presented in real-time. These will utilise a range of projection technologies
from Head Mounted Displays to a six sided CAVE. The project will
undertake a series of empirical investigations into the experience of �being
there� in relation to real places and objects. Analysis of presence will be at the level of psychological, physiological and neurological. At this early
stage of the research four themes are presented: acquisition and real time
rendering of real places; augmentation of such representations; psychophysiological
aspects of presence and establishing a sense of place and
embodiment.
