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.


Language of the Conference

This conference is held in the province of Québec, where we are proud of our official French language. However, given the international nature of the conference and its main organiser (Interactive Media Institute), English is the official language of the conference. Our staff will be happy to serve you in English and French (and sometimes Spanish and Italian), but all conferences and presentations (including workshops, unless advertise otherwise) will be in English. Questions could be asked in French if a member of the audience is kind enough to translate it. There will not be any simultaneous translation services. Note that some Welcome messages from guest speaker may be in French (e.g., discourse from the Mayor of the city of Gatineau).

Nous sommes très sensibles à l’importance du français, autant comme langue officielle au Québec que pour l’avancement des connaissances scientifiques dans la francophonie. Toutefois, compte tenu de la nature internationale de ce congrès et de l’organisateur principal (Interactive Media Institute), l’anglais sera la langue officielle. Les membres de notre personnel se feront un plaisir de vous servir dans les deux langues, et parfois même plus, mais toutes les conférences et les présentations (incluant les ateliers, à moins qu’un atelier soit offert expressément en français) seront en anglais. Vous pouvez poser des questions en français, mais il faudra alors compter sur la générosité d’un membre de l’auditoire pour la traduire en anglais. Il n’y aura pas de service de traduction simultanée.
