VRCAI 2008 : ACM SIGGRAPH International Conference on Virtual-Reality Continuum and its Applications in Industry 2008
Conference Series : Virtual Reality Continuum and its Applications in Industry
Call For Papers
The city of Singapore proudly hosts the 5th ACM SIGGRAPH International Conference on
Virtual-Reality Continuum and its Applications in Industry (VRCAI 2008), on 8-9 December
2008. This year, the conference will take place just before SIGGRAPH Asia 2008.
An exciting VRCAI 2008 awaits participants from both academia and industry in Singapore - a
hotbed of innovation - where state-of-the-art technologies and applications in the Virtual
Reality Continuum (VRC) will be explored and presented. Spanning across next-generation
infocommunication environments like Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Virtuality (AV),
Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), VRC is key in the way we define and interact,
with and within, our virtual worlds. Advances in research and novel applications in this
field have revolutionized much of our leisure activities, making them more appealing and fun.
Just as significantly, these advances provide the foundation for more effective interactivity
in work- and learning-related activities.
VRCAI 2008 will focus on the following main themes: Fundamentals, Systems, Interactions, and
Industry and Applications in the VRC.
A Best Paper, a Best Application and a Best Poster Award will be given at VRCAI 2008.
Accepted papers and posters will be published by ACM SIGGRAPH. The accepted papers will be
included in ACM digital library.
