Want to learn more about wearable sensors, augmented reality, virtual reality, and personalized mobile apps? Then register for UCLA’s Mobile Experience Conference, a new mobile technology event that will convene a community of mobile tech experts, faculty, researchers and students at UCLA’s California NanoSystems Institute on October 12.

The daylong conference, presented by UCLA’s Office of Information Technology’s Mobile and Web Strategy, Education and Research Team, will showcase a variety of mobile technologies — wearable sensors, virtual reality among others. Sessions throughout the day will explore how students, researchers, and faculty can use these technologies to rethink how they collect data, visualize information and tell stories.

Keynote speaker Dr. Gigi Johnson, executive director of the Center for Music Innovation at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, will share how mobile and immersive technologies improve our everyday choices, including the music we listen to.

At the conclusion of the day, UCLA’s fourth annual Code for the Mission competition will unveil the winning teams of its app design contest at an awards ceremony. Student technologists will present the winning apps in three tracks: education, research and service.

The event is sponsored by UCLA and space is limited. To register for the conference visit the Mobile Experience Conference website. Registration closes Oct. 6.
