The INREMO network closed 2014 with an exciting and enriching study tour to Hong Kong and Shenzhen. In Hong Kong, INREMO partners were visiting the University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Science Museum. At the University of Hong Kong, the Center for Information Technology in Education (CITE) organized a seminar on scientific inquiry and digital representations in which our partners presented research from the MIRACLE and the SCY projects. More on this seminar can be read in this post by CITE. At the science museum, our partners met with directives and organizers of the museum’s exhibitions to learn more about their activities and educational programs. Research from MIRACLE as well as from the Visitor Engagement project, one of the projects that has resulted from the INREMO partnership.
In Shenzhen, INREMO partners visited the 2014 edition of the SIGGRAPH ASIA conference, where state of the art technology and interaction design produced and developed on graphics (as well as sound and haptics!) were presented. Our partner the Norwegian Computing Center has written and published a very nice and brief chronicle about the study tour that can be read in the last edition of their internal publication Nedbor (only in Norwegian): Nedbor-2015-01 En kinareise.
