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

Call For Participation

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 and SIGGRAPH and supported by the GRAND NCE.

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 world, and is a major player in almost every economic sector. It features a very diverse and multicultural population of more than 6 million in the metropolitan area. As a 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.
