  •  "Reinventing the Language Initiated by the Lumière Brothers". Jorge Esteban Blein. The objective of this presentation is to reflect on the challenges posed by Virtual Reality when designing immersive experiences in which the storytelling is the main core. The 4 functions that the user can assume will be defined first and then the existing challenges will be exposed, among which the following will be analyzed: The difficulty to identify with characters represented in first person view and the responsibility that it puts in place, the handling of the distractions and the environment so that they do not overshadow the storytelling, the return to a slower narrative rhythm than the one used today, and the user's freedom of movement.
  • "The Importance of Feeling Perceived. Designing Reactive Characters in VR". Joaquín Ruipérez.
  • "Extended Reality: The Continuous Reality-Virtuality and the Amplification of Human Experience". Alejandro Sacristán and Carlos Peña. In the Electric Era we have portrayed Humanity as a second skin: the telephone, the mass media, the Internet, intelligent mobility. Now is the historical moment of the Virtual Reality that is developing as a new immersive communication tissue in which we begin to relate to other people in the form of avatars but also with machines, systems, robots, bots and artificial intelligences, evolving our collective intelligence and immersing ourselves in something bigger than ourselves. The overlap of the digital world and the real world is taking place, where the virtual amplifies and influences the reality, the real virtuality, and where the physical persists in the virtual space. We extend our collective nervous system.
