The Special Track on Immersive Medical Education at the iLRN 2019 Conference will focus on the use of Extended Reality (XR) which includes augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), augmented virtuality (AVR), virtual reality (VR) and related technologies for learning experiences that inspire and engage learners in immersive ways. Of interest are reports of both research studies and applications covering the entire spectrum of immersive platform types, including desktop, mobile, head mounted displays, wearable and room-based (e.g., CAVE). The aim of this special track is to gather not only leading researchers, but also young researchers as well as practitioners and developers in this field who research applications of Immersive Technologies in Medical Education.
