IEEE VR 2019: the 26th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces
March 23-27, 2019, Osaka, Japan
IEEE VR 2019 seeks proposals for interactive panels. We will host three to five panels at the conference on topics drawn from academic, industrial, or consumer interests in virtual reality. Panels are intended to generate lively discussions incorporating differing points of view around significant, emergent, or controversial topics. Panel sessions should not be structured as a series of individual, stand-alone presentations, but rather should include different perspectives on thought-provoking topics that are presented in an engaging manner. Panels should not be used to present a commercial product, nor be limited to the views of one individual. The goal should be to involve and engage all panel participants and the audience. Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for IEEE VR 2019 panels.
Panel sessions are 90 minutes long and we encourage proposers to plan for your panelists’ presentations/introductory remarks to take less than 30 minutes of that time. It is very preferable that the speakers each address a different aspect of the topic. Panelists should come from multiple organizations. We also suggest that your panel have a moderator who is not one of the panelists and who will introduce the panel, serve as session chair, and, if a question is not forthcoming from the audience, start off the discussion with an initial question. The panel organizer does not need to be the moderator; the organizer can be a member of the panel (or not). You do not need to have identified a moderator before submitting your proposal. The Panels Chairs can help you find a moderator if your panel is selected for VR2019.
Panel proposals should be submitted electronically and should include:
Panel submissions must be submitted via email to the Panels Chairs. The deadline for panel submissions is: Tuesday, November 20th. The notifications will be sent by: Monday, December 3.
