IEEE VR 2018: the 25th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces

March 18-22, 2018, Reutlingen, Germany

http://ieeevr.org/2018/

IEEE VR 2018 seeks research demonstrations from laboratories or research groups (academic, government, or industry). Demos should interest the broad VR community and be presentable in a conference setting exhibiting new and innovative work. The conference will provide basic infrastructure (space, a table, and power). Additionally, authors of accepted demos will present an overview in a fast-forward research demonstration session to summarize their demo and relate it to research being performed at their lab. A demo proposal should include:

  • A two-page extended abstract describing the demo and the research itself
  • A schematic of the layout (separate document showing components such as projectors/cameras)
  • A brief video showing the demo in action (the URL should be included in the proposal – youtube or vimeo preferred)

The submission should clearly describe the overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated. Authors should put great emphasis on the work’s motivation, applications, and novelty. The description should also explain how the audience can interact with the demo. Submissions need not be anonymized but may be if the authors prefer. Abstracts for accepted demos will be included in the conference proceedings and in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, so they must follow the IEEE Computer Society format at http://junctionpublishing.org/vgtc/Tasks/camera.html.

Accepted demos must be up and running during dedicated demo sessions and lunch breaks. It is further appreciated if they run at other times (e.g., coffee breaks), but that is not required for acceptance.

SUBMISSION DEADLINES FOR RESEARCH DEMOS

  • December 15, 2017 — Proposal submission
