CALL FOR PAPERS

15th Annual EuroVR conference

22-23 October, 2018
London, UK
http://www.eurovr2018.org/

************************************************************************

We are pleased to announce the 15th annual EuroVR conference in London on 22 – 23 October, 2018, following Bremen (2014); Lecco (2015); Athens (2016); and Laval (2017). This conference series began as part of the INTUITION Network of Excellence in Virtual and Augmented Reality supported by the European Commission from 2004 to 2008 and continued as the Joint Virtual Reality Conferences (JVRC) of EuroVR, EGVE and ICAT from 2009 to 2013. This 2018 conference is being organised by UK members of the European Association for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (EuroVR), namely, University of Nottingham, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC), Glasgow School of Arts, Imperial College London and ImmerseUK.

EuroVR 2018 bring together people from industry, commerce, and research including technology developers, suppliers and all those interested in virtual reality, augmented or mixed reality (VR, AR, MR) and 3D user interfaces, to exchange knowledge and share experiences of new results and applications, enjoy live demonstrations of current and emerging technologies, and form collaborations for future work.

TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS

Scientific/Technical Track (14-20 page long papers or 8-10 page short papers, both in one column Springer format): original, unpublished papers documenting new research contributions, practice and experience, or novel applications in VR/AR/MR.
Industrial Track (1 page abstract): best practices, industrial use cases of VR/AR/MR, project results and demonstrations of VR/AR/MR applications in industry, and/or actual or potential transfers of academic results.
Poster Track (2 page abstract): recently completed work, work in progress, or publicly presentable ideas for unimplemented and/or unusual systems or applications.
Demonstration Track (2 pages abstract): live demonstrations of past and on-going projects. Technology developers and suppliers, exhibitors, digital artists and members of the VR/AR/MR industrial communities are all invited to exhibit and demonstrate the latest technologies and applications.

Authors of accepted scientific/technical papers and industrial track submissions will be expected to attend the conference and make a 15-25 minute oral presentation. The authors of accepted posters and demonstrations will have to make a brief oral presentation on their work in addition to the poster or demo presentations.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Please, consult submission details here: http://www.eurovr2018.org/Pages/CallForPapers

Scientific/Technical papers accepted by the International Program Committee (IPC) will be published in a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series edited by Springer. In addition, some of the best papers will be selected by a special committee to be invited to submit an extended version to the open access journal Frontiers in Virtual Environments.

All abstracts of industrial talks, poster and demo presentations, accepted by their related committees will be published in an ISBN-registered USB key proceedings.
