Call for Research Demos

IEEE VR 2016 seeks research demonstrations from laboratories or research groups (academic, government, or industrial). Demos should interest the broad VR community and be presentable in a conference setting. Accepted research demonstrations will be invited to participate in an exhibition of new and innovative work. The conference will provide basic infrastructure for the demos (space, a table, and power). In addition, authors of accepted demonstrations will have a time slot in the fast-forward Research Demonstration Session to communicate more general information about the specific demo and other work being performed at the lab. A submission proposal should include:
  • A two-page extended abstract describing the demo and the research itself
  • A schematic of the layout (showing components such as projectors/cameras)
  • A brief video showing the demo in action (URL to 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 motivation of the work, on the applications, and on its novelty. The description should also provide information about how the audience can interact with the demo system. If the demo is accepted, the proposal will be included in the proceedings, and as such, it should be formatted using the IEEE Computer Society format described at Demos are expected to be up and running during lunch breaks. If possible it would be appreciated if they could run at other times like coffee breaks, but that is not required for acceptance. SUBMISSION DEADLINES FOR RESEARCH DEMOS
