Paving the way for VR
Unsure about the use of VR in education? Then the presentation by Hamami is a must-attend. Over the past few years, Hamami has worked on exciting projects in academic institutions and private companies to establish a new way of teaching and working using VR technology. Since the start of this year, he’s been head of the VR Section at Qatar University, which just recently opened an impressive VR lab featuring a Barco CAVE. Confident as he is about the benefits of VR, Hamami is dedicated to spreading the use of VR around the Middle East and Africa Region.

It can be adapted to any use in diverse fields like engineering, architecture, biomechanics, mathematics and education, and that’s just the beginning.” Don’t miss this speaking slot if you want to hear how Hamami and his team use the brand-new Barco CAVE to gain new insights and inspire and motivate their students ...
