ICDVRAT/ITAG 18/MaTHiSiS Hackathon Event.

University of Nottingham, England 4-6th September 2018.

The Hackathon will be part of the 12th International Conference on Disability, Virtual Reality and Associated Technologies (ICDVRAT) in association with Interactive Technologies and Games (ITAG):

A Topic  - Affective Learning: Your challenge is to develop games-based learning materials to help people with an intellectual disability or those with autism to learn more effectively. To achieve this, you need to create interactive, technological, engaging learning materials with varying levels of difficulty. The MaTHiSiS system, which will deliver your learning materials, will then adjust the complexity of the materials in response to the learners’ emotional state.  See mathisis-project  for information on the project that created the tools that have launched this challenge.

Registration deadline: Friday 24th August 2018 at Eventbrite.
