EuroVR President: Keynote speaker at Salento AVR

EuroVR President Marco Sacco will contribute to the conference SalentoAVR as Keynote Speaker, giving a speech on “Augmented & Virtual Reality Enabler for the Factory 4.0”.

SalentoAVR is an international conference on Augmented and Virtual Reality which is taking place in Otranto from 24th to 27th June. On this occasion, EuroVR president will propose an analysis on the evolution of the manufacturing sector, the so call Factory 4.0, which requires the introduction of advanced tools for both the knowledge representation and simulation.

For over 10 years, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality have generated benefits in several sectors thanks to the potentialities offered by these visualization technologies able to provide an added value to the contents and data enrichment.

Manufacturing companies, thanks to the reduction of cost and a widespread of devices, could now take advantage integrating AR/VR to simulation and emerging AI. The result is a Virtual Factory, a full digital twin of the real plant, that could be used for several purposes, from design to monitoring and logistics, from reconfiguration to training. Some industrial applications will be presented.

IEEEVR 2018, Reutlingen, 18 – 22 Mar, 2018: Call for Papers

Since 1993, the IEEE Virtual Reality conference has been the premier international venue for the presentation of research results in the broad area of virtual reality (VR). Similarly, the IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces (3DUI), which started as a workshop at IEEE VR in 2004, has become the premier venue for 3D user interfaces and 3D interaction in VR environments. This year VR and 3DUI have been merged into a single IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces, with the short name IEEE VR.

TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS

IEEE VR 2018 features two categories of submissions: (i) VR Papers, and (ii) VR Notes. Both categories have their own program committees, submission processes, and review processes.

  • VR Papers: Submissions to this category should be 8–10 pages in length, and should contain substantial scientific contributions to the field of VR and 3D user interfaces, and when appropriate provide complete and substantial support for results and conclusions. All accepted VR Paper submissions will automatically be published in a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and will also include an oral presentation at IEEE VR.
  • VR Notes: Submissions to this category should be 4–8 pages in length, and would typically reflect a more narrow (yet still significant) scope of contribution than VR Papers. VR Notes are not expected to cover all aspects of a typical journal article, instead they may cover one or two specific areas in depth, or relatively early work. The submission deadline for VR Notes will be after the notification for VR Papers submissions. All accepted VR Notes submissions will also include an oral presentation at IEEE VR.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

IEEE VR 2018 seeks original, high-quality research, application and systems papers in all areas related to virtual reality (VR), including augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and 3D user interfaces (3DUIs). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
