To mark the occasion, I would like to direct your attention to a very special event for dedicated panoramic photographers at the Photokina in Cologne.

The IVRPA holds a one day conference in Cologne University of Applied Sciences for Design, the day before the Photokina starts.

Speakers include Henry Stuart from London, (who has captured this year for Getty, the London Olympics in interactive panoramic images as well as in gigapixel images) and Jens Radü, head of iPad editors at German magazine DER SPIEGEL, with a lecture on multimedia storytelling.

But that's not enough. We will, for example, also hear a talk from Sergey Semenov, member of the unrivaled www.airpano.com team plus we will get a talk and demonstration from Ignacio Ferando Margelí on his experience with 360 video and the 360Rig from Joergen Geerds.

The complete conference program can be found here: www.koeln2012.org

Join our conference, and I can assure you that in just one day you will get a complete overview of the most viral topics in our industry.

And who would like to examine the subject even further, can take a seat in one of the workshops offered by our experts http://www.koeln2012.org/tutorial/

To be honest, the participation in the conference and the tutorials require a membership in the IVRPA, but since this is not tied to any conditions, and with $ 50 U.S. ridiculously low priced, the events are open to anyone who wants to support our cause.

Those who are not able to join the conference are cordially invited to visit our booth C008 during the fair in Hall 4.1

See you in Cologne
Jürgen
