IEEE VR 2020: the 27th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces
March 22-26, 2020, Atlanta, Georgia
The DC is a concentrated full-day event that will be held on Sunday, March 22rd, 2020, where students present their research interests/plans/results to a panel of senior researchers in the field and receive specific constructive feedback, followed by a reception in the evening and networking opportunities during the following days. Accepted students will be expected to give in-depth presentations of their research and will receive constructive comments from mentors. Additionally, accepted students will create a poster about their work to allow IEEE VR attendees to quickly familiarize themselves with each other’s work and to be shown to a broader audience during the conference poster session. Accepted students will have the option to publish their two-page extended abstract in the conference proceedings and to be included in the online IEEE VR program. There is also the possibility that the abstracts may be archived in the IEEExplore digital library.
Ideal candidates will be in the early or mid stages of their PhD, and should have a solid idea of their direction and topic, but should also have room for improvement. The DC welcomes applicants from a broad range of disciplines including VR, AR, 3D user interfaces, human-computer interaction, wearable computing, social informatics, information technology, cognitive science, and related fields.
To apply to the DC, please submit the following two documents via the Precision Conference Doctoral Consortium track at https://new.precisionconference.com/~vr as a single PDF. All IEEE VR Doctoral Consortium submissions should be prepared in IEEE Computer Society VGTC format http://junctionpublishing.org/vgtc/Tasks/camera.html and submitted as a PDF.
Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered.
Students are encouraged to seek funding from their institutions for travel and registration costs. DC participants who also apply as Student Volunteers will have conference registration fully paid for and planned by the Student Volunteer team. Historically, the conference has been able to obtain some funding for students based in the U.S. and as we obtain specific information on other financial support we will update these pages and/or notify accepted student researchers.
