We welcome submissions from both industry and academia, and in a range of formats spanning the following categories:
- Technical Papers: 4-6 pages full paper;
- Posters (size A0) plus short descriptive paper of 1-2 pages;
- Demos (live presentation) plus short descriptive paper of 1-2 pages;
- Special sessions;
Results from research activities, demonstrations, test-bed and prototype testing are encouraged by universities, research institutes and industry. Joint papers from different institutions are welcome. Accepted papers will be invited for oral presentation and must be presented by at least one of the authors during the EuroVR2016 Conference.
Download the EuroVR2016 word template (link) and submit your paper at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurovr2016. The conference will not accept any more submissions.
Final papers will be included in the Conference proceedings. A selection of papers from EuroVR2016 Conference will be published in a Special Issue of the Journal of Virtual Reality and Broadcasting as extended versions (www.jvrb.org)
JVRB is an open access E-journal covering advanced media technology for the integration of human computer interaction and modern information systems. The main focus is on the creation of synergies between such basic technologies as computer graphics and state-of-the-art broadcasting techniques.
Posters & demos
During the EuroVR2016 conference an interactive poster and demo session will be hosted. The session provides an excellent opportunity to receive feedback and discuss early research through poster presentations and/or demonstrate novel work related to the Conference topics. We emphasize that the poster/demo session is not a forum to display commercial products.
Accepted demos and posters will be included in the EuroVR2016 conference proceedings and should be presented by at least one author at the EuroVR2016 Conference. During the interactive poster and demo session all participants will have the chance to vote for the best presented poster and demo. For submitting your poster or demo proposal please follow the guidelines below:
The posters may describe work in progress, experimental results and current projects related to the topics of the conference. Accepted posters will be included in the EuroVR2016 conference proceedings and should be presented by at least one author at the EuroVR2016 Conference.
Download the EuroVR2016 Poster Template (link). Submit your poster/demo descriptive paper (2 pages maximum) at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurovr2016
The demos may include innovative work from research laboratories, startup companies and other VR/AR related entrepreneurs and must be presented live at the workshop venue.
