VRST 2012 : The 18th ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology
         Dec 10 - 12, 2012
         Toronto, Canada

Last Call For Papers

The ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST) is  
an international
forum for the exchange of experience and knowledge among researchers  
and developers
concerned with virtual reality software and technology. VRST will  
provide an opportunity
for VR researchers to interact, share new results, show live  
demonstrations of their
work, and discuss emerging directions for the field. The event is  
sponsored by ACM SIGCHI

VRST 2012 will be held downtown in Toronto, Canada. Toronto is an  
international business
hub, a commercial capital, one of the top financial centres in the

result, Toronto has
great shoppin, offers a wide variety of food choices, and cultural  
experiences. The
conference will be hosted by the University of Ontario Institute of  
Technology. VRST 2012
aims at bringing together VR researchers from around the world to present the
state-of-the-art advances in this ever-growing dynamic area.

We invite you to participate in the ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality  
Software and
Technology (VRST) 2012. ACM VRST 2012 seeks original, unpublished  
papers documenting

applications, from all
areas of virtual, mixed and augmented reality.

The VRST technical program consists of high quality technical papers  
that are reviewed
