VRCAI 2018: ACM SIGGRAPH International Conference on
(co-located with Siggraph Asia 2018)

Venue: Mita Campus, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan
Date: 2-3 December 2018
The 16th ACM SIGGRAPH International Conference on Virtual-Reality
Continuum and its Applications in Industry (VRCAI2018), on 2-3
December 2018 will take place just before SIGGRAPH Asia 2018(4-7,Dec) in Tokyo, Japan.

An exciting VRCAI 2018 awaits participants from both academia and industry all over the world, where fundamental methods, state-of-the-art technologies and innovative applications in the Virtual Reality Continuum (VRC) will be presented and discussed. Virtual Reality Continuum (VRC) emphasizes the coexistence and consistence of the virtual world and the real world. Spanning across next-generation info-communication 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 and physical worlds. To advance research in the VRC fields, VRCAI 2018 seeks to provide a forum for scientists, researchers, developers, users and industry leaders in the international VRC community to come together to share experiences, exchange ideas and spur one another in the knowledge of this fast-growing field. 

VRCAI 2018 will focus on the following main themes: VRC Fundamental and Related Technology in Computer Graphics, VRC Systems, Interactions, and Industry Applications in the VRC.
