Ethics in Investigational & Interventional Uses of Immersive Virtual Reality (e3iVR)

The e3iVR conference took place in April 2017 in the Discovery Building on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. The conference featured a series of talks and breakout sessions, some of which were open to the public, and focused on the development of ethical standards in the emerging and growing field of Virtual Reality.

The objective of this conference was to produce a set of guidelines for the ethical conduct of research experiments as well as clinical treatments including informed consent, integrity of the sense of person, meaningful explanation of side effects and consequences of a VR experience, and fair notification of the extensive data tracking now possible in these systems.
