“After 9 years of collaboration with the Advanced Imaging Society of Hollywood, Stereopsia has decided to adopt a new international position, focused on Europe and Latin America. Indeed, on the one hand, Stereopsia launches this year the first edition of Stereopsia LATAM in September, in Santiago de Chile; and on the other hand, Stereopsia is actively working on the launch of the pan-European association XR4Europe supported by the European Commission. Thus, Stereopsia has decided to create a new Award to celebrate immersive research, innovation and creation, namely the Crystal Owl®”
