The first annual New York Light and Sound Interactive Conference and Expo (LSI) will be held September 12-14, 2017 in Rochester, New York, immediately preceding the Rochester Fringe Festival. The event will feature virtual and augmented reality, games and interactive media, next-generation displays, integrated photonics, computer vision, autonomous vehicles, new forms of media and user experiences, immersive sound, and other technologies that employ light and sound at the human interface. The target audience for this hands-on interactive event includes large and small companies, start-ups, investors, entrepreneurs, media professionals, artists, researchers, enthusiasts, thought-leaders, and futurists.
LSI builds upon Rochester’s heritage as the Imaging Capital of the World and its globally recognized optics, photonics, and imaging cluster. The conference also will leverage Rochester’s world-renowned music culture anchored by the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music and our media innovation community led by the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Media, Arts, Games, Interaction, and Creativity (MAGIC) Center. Specific events will include addresses by keynote speakers, panel sessions, networking events, product demonstrations, hands-on technology demonstrations, and a trade show.
LSI is being organized by the Center for Emerging and Innovative Sciences (CEIS) at the University of Rochester (a NYSTAR designated Center for Advanced Technology) in conjunction with the Rochester Institute of Technology and volunteers from industry, academia, and economic development organizations throughout the region.
