IEEE Virtual Reality 2018 Call for Tutorials

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

March 18-22, 2018, Reutlingen, Germany

http://ieeevr.org/2018

Tutorials are an excellent opportunity to offer education in topics in our field for both novice and experienced researchers. We invite members of our community to submit proposals for full-day or half-day tutorials to be presented on Sunday March 18th, or Monday March 19th, 2018. Please note that Workshops will also be held on these two days.

Proposed tutorials may be introductory or advanced and should address topics of interest to the virtual, mixed, or augmented reality communities, as well as the 3D user interface community. Proposals will be evaluated on their relevance to the conference topics, their suitability for presentation in a tutorial format, and the qualifications of the instructors. We will strive for a balance of topics in the tutorial program and also consider the potential for interest and attendance. Upon review of submitted proposals, suggestions may be provided by the Tutorials chairs to submitters on how to improve their submission. (See schedule below.)

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

  • Immersion
  • 3D interaction
  • Input devices
  • Haptics, audio, and other non-visual interfaces
  • VR/AR/MR systems and toolkits
  • Introduction to virtual, augmented, or mixed reality
  • Computer graphics techniques for VR/AR/MR
  • Advanced display technology
  • Immersive projection technology
  • Multi-user and distributed VR/AR/MR
  • Serious games
  • Tracking and sensing
  • Modeling and simulation
  • User studies and evaluation
  • Perception, presence, and cognition
  • Navigation
  • Applications of VR/AR/MR
  • Teleoperation and telepresence
  • Software frameworks for VR/AR/MR

Proposals are welcome on topics that have been previously addressed; new approaches or insights are especially appreciated. Submissions should include a statement indicating how the proposal differs from recent tutorial presentations that may have approached a similar topic, or why it is important to offer it again. Topics taken from the list of suggested topics appropriate for paper submissions to the main conference are also welcome.

Proposals for tutorials should be submitted electronically (MS Word, PDF, or text) and should include:

A title for the tutorial Proposed length (full or half day) A brief description of the topics to be addressed, including time allotted to each (roughly 500 words) The technical level and intended audience The expected value to that audience The names, contact information and a short biography (roughly 200 words each) for the proposed instructors.

Also include whether the tutorial (or similar one) has been delivered before (where and when), and if so, why it should be held again. This is required whether the proposers organized the previous tutorials themselves or the previous tutorials were taught by someone else.

For each accepted tutorial (half-day and full-day), we will be able to provide one free registration for the first two days of IEEE VR 2018 (March 18-19, 2018). For full day tutorials, we plan to provide one free registration for the full conference instead upon request and upon approval from the General Chairs.
