Immersive Tech Event - 'New Beginnings'

Tuesday 23 January 2024
Turfmarkt 99
2511 DP The Hague

Dear Leiden XR community, teachers, researchers, PhD students, support staff, management, policy makers, decision makers, XR enthusiasts and critics: we are thrilled to announce an Extended Reality (XR) event without precedent at Leiden, packed with presentations, workshops, and demos from your colleagues across each and every faculty of the university.


Organised by LLInC (Leiden Learning & Innovation Centre), the event aims to focalise, support, and amplify all those with an interest in XR at our Leiden University, whether professionals or the simply curious.  

For those with projects already completed or underway, it provides a fantastic platform for exposure and feedback. For those still questioning whether to take the plunge and keen to know more, it furnishes the rare opportunity for you to pose your questions to those from all levels of the university including developers, professors, and management - all this while trying the technology out for yourself. 

Ongoing impact

Encouraged and inspired by the theme of 'New Beginnings', our team is working diligently to ensure our event’s enduring impact. For this reason, in addition to providing extensive opportunities to physically engage through demos and workshops, we intend this occasion to serve as a platform for collaborative discussion concerning the future path of XR at our university. 

Why should you attend?

  • Gain insights into cutting-edge XR technologies and applications.  
  • Connect with like-minded professionals, enthusiasts, and experts in the field.  
  • Explore Leiden-developed XR projects and demos which will leave you in awe.  
  • Speak with decision makers to clarify how we can all help one another reach mutually satisfactory outcomes  
  • It’s not often you get the chance to see so many XR-curious colleagues in one room! 

We believe in the power of collaboration and community and hence - if you would like to receive feedback on one of your XR projects by hosting a demo - our doors are very much open to your thoughts and suggestions!

Whether as a demo host or participant, your input can help shape the future of XR at Leiden.
