Adalberto L. Simeone

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the KU Leuven. My research lies in the intersection of 3D Interaction and Virtual Reality with Human-Computer Interaction. I am motivated by a deep interest in making the technologies supporting the fruition of 3D contents more accessible by everyone.

Ultimately, my driving passion is to contribute as best as I can towards making visionary science-fiction ideas become science-fact.

Altering User Movement Behaviour in Virtual Environments

In immersive Virtual Reality systems, users tend to move in a Virtual Environment as they would in an analogous physical environment. In this work, we investigated how user behaviour is affected when the Virtual Environment differs from the physical space.

Substitutional Reality: Using the physical environment to design Virtual Reality experiences

Experiencing Virtual Reality in domestic and other uncontrolled settings is challenging due to the presence of physical objects and furniture that are not usually defined in the Virtual Environment. To address this challenge, we explore the concept of Substitutional Reality in the context of Virtual Reality: a class of Virtual Environments where every physical object surrounding a user is paired, with some degree of discrepancy, to a virtual counterpart.
