IEEE Virtual Reality 2017 Call for Workshop Contributions

IEEE VR 2017: the 24th IEEE Virtual Reality Conference

March 18-22, 2017, Los Angeles, California


Full-day or half-day workshops are intended to bring together researchers, developers, technology providers, and users for a lively discussion of issues and an informal exchange of ideas and information.

Workshops may target a specific application area, a specific research area, or a topic of general interest.

We invite individuals or teams interested in organizing such a workshop to submit proposals. Workshops will be held on March 18th and 19th, 2017. Tutorials and the 2017 3DUI Symposium will also be held on these two days.

Workshop proposals should be submitted electronically and should include:

  • A title and an acronym
  • A brief topic description (approximately 500 words) including a statement of what the organizers expect participants to submit (such as position papers or preliminary research results),
  • The intended audience and its expected size
  • A list of invited speakers (if any),
  • Describe the format or style of the workshop (such as a series of short presentations, with a panel discussion session, working groups, or other)
  • The expected benefits of participating in the workshop, and
  • The names, contact information, and brief biographies (roughly 100 words each) of the workshop organizers.
  • Technical requirements, including space, audio/visual, computer, and communication needs.

The deadline for workshop submissions is November 28th, 2016, notifications will be sent out on December 05th. Workshop submissions must be submitted via email to the Workshops Chairs. Workshop organizers will be expected to issue their calls-for-participation no later than December 12nd and to issue any acceptance decisions to their participants no later than February 10th in order to allow sufficient time for travel planning and advance registration to the conference. IEEE VR Workshops proceedings may, at the discretion of IEEE and the workshop organizers, be published electronically through the IEEE Digital Library. Organizers of accepted workshops are encouraged to seek assistance from the Workshops Chairs to navigate this process.
