WEVR 2015: 1st Workshop on Everyday Virtual Reality
IEEE Virtual Reality 2015
23 March 2015
Arles Congress Center, Camargue - Provence, France

Rethinking Virtual Reality for Home and Office Environments

Traditionally, Virtual Reality has been conceived for purpose-built highly instrumented laboratories. However, the upcoming release of consumer grade Virtual Reality head-mounted displays will allow users to experience VR in everyday environments such as their own home or office where obstacles are commonplace and tracking is not trivial. If consumer VR is to evolve beyond the desktop paradigm, a rethinking of the way we design and implement interactive VR systems for these environments is needed. This half-day workshop will bring together researchers and industry practitioners to explore these new challenges and define a new research agenda.

We invite authors to submit 4 page position papers, preliminary research results, novel concepts or case studies (up to a maximum of 6 pages). Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Novel approaches to user tracking and locomotion interfaces
* Design of Virtual Reality interactive experiences
* 3D User Interfaces for Desktop Virtual Reality
* Tangible and haptics support for interaction with Virtual Environments
* Virtual Reality health care at home
* Virtual agents
* Collaborative Virtual Environments

Papers should be submitted via our EasyChair ( Submissions must be anonymised and in PDF format, using the IEEE template. A committee of expert reviewers in the aforementioned domains will review all submissions.

- Submission Deadline: 2 February 2015
- Notification: 15 February 2014
- Camera-Ready: 1 March 2015
- Conference Early Registration: 22 February 2015
- WEVR Workshop: 23 March 2015

Please send any queries to Adalberto Simeone ( For further information visit At least one author per paper must register for the workshop as well as one day of the IEEE VR/3DUI conference. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to give a 10 minute presentation at the workshop. Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Digital Library.
