12/23/08 UPDATE Six Workshops have been selected for IEEE VR 09. Submissions to these workshops are now open. See the Advance Program for the specific information on how to contribute to each workshop.


Full-day or half-day workshops are intended to bring together researchers, developers, technology providers, and users for a lively discussion of issues and an informal exchange of ideas and information. Workshops may target a specific application area, a specific research area, or a topic of general interest. We invite individuals or teams interested in organizing such a workshop to submit proposals. Workshops will be held on March 14 and 15 2009, alongside tutorials and the 3DUI symposium.

Workshop proposals should be submitted electronically and should include a title, a brief topic description (approximately 500 words) including a statement of what the organizers expect from the participants (such as position papers or preliminary research results). The description should also include any invited speakers, and whether a panel discussion format will be used, and the expected benefits of participating in the workshop.

The names, contact information and brief biographies (roughly 100 words each) of the workshop organizers should be included with the submission. The proposal should also identify the intended audience, its size, and all technical requirements, including space, audio/visual, computer, and communication needs, etc.

The deadline for workshop submissions is: November 14, 2008

Workshop submissions must be submitted via email to the Workshops Chairs at
