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 Virginia, USA. The official language is English as spoken in the United States. All presentations (unless advertised otherwise) will be in English.
