The Centre for Immersive Visual Technologies being established at Tampere University of Technology 2014-2016 is a nationally wide research facility jointly funded by Academy of Finland and TUT. We provide first class facilities, equipment and research expertise for professionals and students.

We want to offer you—the professionals and the students—to be part of this journey with us in exploring how the immersive visual technologies can be a useful new tool for scientific, marketing and entertainment purposes.


The European Training Network on Full Parallax Imaging is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network, which unites eight European beneficiaries and eight partner organizations world-wide with the aim to train the next generation of innovative researchers in the area of theoretical and applied optics, multi-dimensional image processing, and visual neuroscience.

The research concept of the network is to harmonize and advance the research in the areas of plenoptics, light field and integral imaging under the umbrella of the viewer-centred FPI concept. The researchers trained within the network are expected to gather competitive skills and become highly competent in bringing innovations to the field of ultra-realistic and interactive visual media.

The organizer reserves the right to make changes to the event program.

We will be privileged having you at the event!

Best Regards,
Prof. Atanas Gotchev and the CIVIT Team
