Submissions to all conference program categories have been closed. Visit the Final Program pages to see detailed information about the conference.

Lively discussions incorporating differing points of view help focus attention on significant and/or controversial topics. Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for interactive panel sessions with the goal of addressing a specific VR or related topic from several perspectives. Panel sessions should not be structured as a series of individual stand-alone presentations but rather should address debatable material that is presented in a lively manner. The goal should be to involve all panel participants and engage the audience.

Panel proposals should be submitted electronically and should include a title for the panel session, a brief description of the overall issues to be discussed (roughly 500 words), and the names, contact information and short (roughly 100 words each) biographies for the organizer and each panelist. Panelists should come from multiple organizations.

The deadline for panel submissions is: November 14, 2008.

Panel submissions must be submitted via email to the Panels Chairs at
