Postponed: Virtual Reality Symposium
Out of an abundance of caution and in following the recommendations of President Crawford, Governor DeWine, and state public health officials to minimize non-essential group gatherings, Virtual Reality Symposium has been postponed. We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we take steps to ensure the continued wellbeing of all our Miami community.
A symposium targeted to Miami students, faculty and staff who are interested or working on virtual reality projects. The symposium will also serve as the kick-off for the Understanding Virtual Reality Micro-Credential.
