About the CYPSY conference

The CYPSY Conference began in 1996 and featured presentations dealing mainly with conceptual matters, ‘what ifs’ and the future possibilities of healthcare and technology. The conference largely focused on Virtual Reality, but has now grown to be more inclusive of other interactive technologies and to include presentations that demonstrate controlled clinical trials. It has also grown to include the investigation of social networking tools on individual behavior, society, and interpersonal relationships.
