Former RWTH CAVE Inaugurated in Regensburg

Andrea Bönsch gave an invited talk at the International Symposium Virtual Reality in Psychotherapy Research, Regensburg. During this symposium, the new multisensory laboratory (CAVE) at the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy by Prof. Andreas Mühlberger, University Regensburg, was ceremonially inaugurated. As this CAVE was operated by our group here at RWTH Aachen University till 2011, it is great to know that it now has a new home and intended purpose at Regensburg. We wish Prof. Mühlberger and his research group a lot of success in their research on human behavior conducted by means of the new laboratory.

Upcoming Event: 2nd Congress Exhibition "VR in Industry"

The discipline of Virtual Reality is on its way towards a serious and powerful tool in scientific and industrial applications. Especially for the latter, it offers new and innovative ways in areas like marketing, product development, and training.

To answer and discuss questions on the integration into existing processes, hardware and software solutions, and costs incurred, we teamed up with the TEMA Technologie Marketing AG and organized the first congress exhibition "VR in Industry" in July 2017. The talks about business cases from industry and insights into academic research as well as an exhibition with several live demonstrations were well received by about 200 attendees.

Due to the ongoing active and high interest, a second congress exhibition will take place on July 4th, 2018. The event offers the possibility to learn about the latest developments, exchange know-how, and forge new business relationships. More information can be found under

We look forward to seeing you!
