The IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces 2010 is the fifth international symposium focused on the topic of 3D UIs and will be held to provide an intensive exchange between industrial and academic researchers working in various 3DUI research areas and to trigger discussions among participants. It builds on successful 3DUI workshops in 2004 and 2005, as well as the IEEE 3DUI Symposiums in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009. The symposium will last for two days, and will be followed immediately by the IEEE VR conference. The theme of the Symposium will cover all areas of 3D UI research. The Symposium themes include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • 3D interaction techniques
  • 3D user interface metaphors
  • 3D input devices
  • Desktop 3D UIs
  • 3D UIs for VR and AR
  • Evaluation methods for 3D UIs
  • 3D display devices
  • Applications of 3D UI techniques
  • 3D UIs for games
  • 3D UIs for CAD
  • Biologically inspired 3D UIs
  • Collaborative 3D interaction

The Symposium solicits high quality papers and tech-notes within the scope of 3DUI (see the double-submission policy). Papers (up to 8 pages) should describe original and mature research results and will typically include some evidence of the validity of the presented research. Examples of such evidence may include, but are not limited to, a user evaluation, formal proof, or well substantiated argumentation. Tech-notes (up to 4 pages) should contain unpublished preliminary results of research or design work. Papers and Tech-notes should be prepared in IEEE VGTC format (here is last year's example) submitted through the submission web site in PDF format, and will be reviewed by the program committee and external reviewers. Reviewing is double-blind. Accepted papers and tech-notes will be published by IEEE in the official Symposium proceedings. An International Award Committee will also award Best Paper and Best Tech-notes awards, and authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies.

This year the conference will be held in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA. Being in close proximity to Boston, it shares in the reputation as "the Athens of America" derived in large part from the teaching and research activities of more than 100 colleges and universities located in the Greater Boston Area.
