visually induced motion sensations

6th International Conference on 

Toronto, 16-17 November, 2017

Thank you

We would like to thank all speakers and attendees for their participation in the 6th VIMS conference in Toronto! Your contribution helped to make the conference a great success and we are looking forward to seeing you at the next VIMS conference in 2019.   




The International Conference on Visually Induced Motion Sensations is a bi-annual conference and was held in Toronto, Canada, on November 16-17, 2017. Many things have changed since the first meeting in 2003: New technologies have emerged, some of which have significantly impacted our lifestyle, such as smartphones, tablets, social media. We rely on visual technologies more than ever and have implemented them in our daily routines. The goal of VIMS 2017 was to serve a key role in helping to find ways in which to optimize the engagement and improve the perceptual aspects with these technologies and mitigating potentially adverse effects.

VIMS 2017 included presentations from research fields that are relevant to motion sickness, but also have their own empirical tradition: vection, eye-movements, postural control. For the first time, we engaged industry partners, given that their experiences with the increasingly pervasive use and explosive development of these technologies (in health, entertainment, training) can help to prioritize research objectives.
