2015 SIG Leader Announcements and Update
At the coming 41th annual meeting (26-29 August 2015) of the Association for Dental Education in Europe in Szeged, Hungary, there will be, like in other recent years, a special interest group (SIG) on Virtual reality in dental education on Thursday 28 th of August. During this SIG meeting information will be presented on recent developments and applications of virtual reality in dental education and experiences will be exchanged. Several users of VR related technologies will present their experiences in the use of these developments as well as on the implementation of these technologies within the dental curriculum. Also the available evidence on the application of these new developments in education will be discussed and possible alternatives will be brought up.
As we are planning and making up the program for this SIG we ask you whether you are interested to give a presentation at this SIG. In case you have this in mind please inform us at the latest by July 15th so we can arrange a program in time in order to inform all people interested some period prior to the meeting whether their presentation has been fit into this session. It should be realized that submitting a title does not necessarily mean that it can be included as this depends on the number of submissions and in case choises have to be made it will be considered if some aspects of the proposed content have been presented at a previous SIG meeting.
