Call for Research Demonstrations

IEEE VR 2019: the 26th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces
March 23-27, 2019, Osaka, Japan

(Updated on December 4th, 2018. Misleading information corrected)

Important Dates

  • December 19, 2018: Two-page abstract, floor plan, and video material submission
  • January 8, 2019: Notification of results
  • January 16, 2019: Camera-ready floor plan, and final video material submission

(to be published in conference proceedings)

Proposals for research demonstrations must be submitted via email to the Research Demonstration Chairs (researchdemos2019 [at] ieeevr.org). Interested contributors are encouraged to contact the chairs with any questions or to discuss potential demonstrations.

Each deadline is 23:59:59 AoE (Anywhere on Earth) == GMT/UTC-12:00 on the stated day, no matter where the submitter is located.


The 26th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces 2019 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.

Submission Guidelines

A demo proposal should include:

  • A two-page extended abstract in PDF format describing the demo and the research itself
  • A schematic of the layout (a separate document showing components such as projectors/cameras)
  • (not mandatory) 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.
