Call for Videos

We invite participants to submit videos showing the results of VR-related research or applications, including efforts from 3D user interfaces and mixed or augmented reality. Videos describing work in a submitted paper are welcome. However, videos can and should also be submitted independently of a paper submission.

Selected videos will be included in the electronic proceedings and will also be prominently displayed during the conference.

Videos should be able to stand on their own and adequately present their topic. They must be between 2 and 5 minutes long and be narrated in English. Each video must be accompanied by a one-page PDF description including:

  • A title
  • A 200-word abstract
  • References
  • Acknowledgments
  • Contact information with author names, affiliations, and an email address for the lead author
  • A high-resolution representative still image

When preparing the video, please make it as professional as possible. Producing a video already requires a significant amount of effort, and spending just a little more effort to raise the quality can make a big difference in how it is received.

Videos will be accepted in MPEG (.mpg), QuickTime (.mov), AVI (.avi), or Matroska (.mkv) file formats. In the interests of producing a video that is as platform agnostic as possible, we suggest using one of the following codecs:

  • MPEG 1 or 2
  • Cinepak
  • H.264
  • DivX or Xvid

Please note that these videos will appear as a file in the HTML directory structure of the electronic proceedings. Any variance from the suggested formatting may result in difficulties playing the file on different platforms due to our limited time to convert the files for the authors.

The deadline for video submissions is: January 8, 2010.

Video descriptions must be submitted via email, with the URL of the video itself, to the Videos Chairs at vr-videochairs@ieee.org.

For more information, or details on video submission, please contact the Video Chairs:

Gabriel Zachmann, Clausthal University, Germany
