Call for Participation: Papers

The website for paper submission is now closed. The deadline for a one-page description of your submission was September 15, 2007.

Instructions for final submission can be found here.

IEEE VR 2008 seeks original, high-quality research papers in all areas of virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user interfaces. Research papers should describe results that contribute to advancements in state-of-the-art software, hardware, algorithms, interaction, or systems development. Application papers should explain how the authors built upon existing ideas to solve an interesting problem in a novel way, along with any system evaluation. Systems papers should indicate how the implementers synthesized together several known techniques to produce a good system with any lessons learned in the process, and including any evaluation and/or benchmarking that was performed.

Paper authors should note that to offer a later deadline than in past years, there is a change to the submission process this year, and the authors must upload an extended abstract in advance of their full submission. This new process is necessary to meet the demands of a considerably shorter review timeframe, and will allow reviewers to be assigned in advance of the full paper deadline. As the paper review process is double-blind, neither the one-page pre-submission nor the submitted paper should reveal the identity of the authors.

Extended abstracts should include keywords, plus a single page summary, similar in content to the introduction of the paper. Formatting should follow the IEEE Computer Society format.

** The submission deadline will be strictly enforced. **

Also we are pleased to announce that the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) journal has agreed to accept extended versions of the top papers from the VR 2008 proceedings in a special section.

Papers must be in English, not exceed eight (8) pages in length and be formatted using the IEEE Computer Society format described at http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html. IEEE VR uses a double-blind review process. Submissions should not contain information (including citations and optional videos) that unnecessarily identifies the authors or their institutions or places of work. All papers must be submitted electronically. Authors who do not have web access should contact one of the program chairs listed below.

Authors may also submit videos to aid the program committee in the review of their submissions. Videos must be submitted following the instructions at the conference website. Videos submitted with papers will automatically be considered for possible inclusion in the video proceedings (video submissions may also be made independently -- see "Call for Videos" below). When submitted as supporting material for a paper, videos must be free of identifying information. When included as part of the video proceedings, a complete version of the video will be used.

The deadline for submitting extended abstracts is: September 15, 2007.
The deadline for submitting the full paper is: September 20, 2007.
Review decisions are expected to be announced: November 5, 2007.
Update: decisions expected November 7th, 2007. We appologize for the delay.
The deadline for the camera-ready edition of the paper is: January 3, 2008.
