A special day of hands-on tutorials has been scheduled at the beginning of the conference. It will provide training in photographing and producing stitched digital panoramas, with several levels of expertise, from beginners to advanced.

VR professionals will be leading short photo-safaris in the morning and conducting hands-on computer sessions in the afternoon. Vendors will be on hand to assist with hardware and software, and may provide evaluation units for trial, as well as items for sale at a special show discount.

A $125 extra fee and advance registration are required for the tutorial day, or $100 if also attending the conference. This will include a box lunch and the Wednesday evening reception.

Tutorial participants should plan on arriving on Tuesday night for an orientation session in the evening. Each individual must provide their own camera equipment and laptop computer. The tutorials coordinator can be contacted before the conference to advise on equipment and preparation.

Space in the tutorials will be limited so advance registration is required.
