======== WORKSHOP OVERVIEW =====
AI-enabled AR/VR-based exergames have the potential to enable a broader spectrum of users to participate in rehabilitative and fitness activities in immersive social environments that provide continual feedback to improve performance and incentivize continued usage. However, consumer grade AR/VR systems do not yet have the full capabilities needed to realize exergaming at scale. These challenges include, but are not limited to AI feedback algorithms that can run on untethered systems, long-term usage comfort due to system bulkiness, inability to simulate real-world attributes such as weight and resistance, novel exercise routine generation, and multi-user latency.
======== WORKSHOP FORMAT =======
The half-day Workshop on AI and AR/VR for Exergaming (AIVR4Exergame) will consist of a keynote, juried paper presentations, a panel discussion, and a research demo session from Delsys/Altec Research (Natick, MA, USA).
====== TOPICS OF INTEREST ======
+ Design of exergames to facilitate long-term continued usage
+ Design of AI algorithms that provide closed-loop feedback to enable continued usability
+ Design of AI algorithms for assessing and correcting virtual interactions for safe usage
+ Design of AI algorithms to generate novel exercise routines
+ Simulating the real-world in AR/VR (e.g., weight, friction, resistance)
+ AI techniques for movement tracking using smartphone sensors for smartphone-based AR/VR exergaming
+ Incorporating haptics and biofeedback to ensure safe interactions in immersive AR/VR environments
+ Effectiveness of AI-enabled AR/VR-based exergaming through results from case studies
+ Emergent hardware platforms to enable broader uptake of AR/VR-based exergames
+ Long term physical and psychological effects of exergaming in AR/VR
+ Ethical considerations for use of AI for AR/VR-based exergaming
+ Co-located and remote social environments for AR/VR exergaming
+ Designing rehabilitative AR/VR exergames for children, older adults, and individuals with disabilities
+ AR/VR-based tele-rehab server platform to connect participants from remote locations
======= VENUE AND DATES ========
The workshop will be co-located with the IEEE AIxVR conference and will take place from January 17-19, 2024 at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Remote participation options will be provided for those who cannot attend in person.
