 TITLE: IEEE VR 2013 Workshop on Immersive Volumetric Interaction (WIVI

            March 16, 2013 Orlando, FL

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++  ABSTRACT +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

There is a growing interest in interaction research of volumes for
immersive virtual environments and immersive visualizations. Traditional
interaction modalities may not be sufficient to select and manipulate
multiple objects or data points or have the potential to interfere with
usersí sense of immersion or workflow. Additionally, there is a strong
interest in scaling interfaces from the desktop display to higher immersive
display systems, therefore cost, availability, and familiarity all play a
role in designing interaction. Solutions tend to be focused on separately
in these communities, however we propose a common forum to openly discuss
these issues and ideas for solutions.

The IEEE VR 2013 Workshop on Immersive Volumetric Interaction is intended
to bring together researchers, developers, and users from multiple
communities in Virtual
Environments, 3D User Interfaces, and Immersive Visualizations to discuss
issues and share ideas that relate to the process, interaction modalities,
hardware, software, interface constraints, and usersí goals and workflow as
they relate to the problem of interacting with volumetric data in immersive
visualizations and/or multiple objects defined as a volume in virtual
environments. This workshop will provide a forum for presentations and
energized discussions to initial new and exciting developments in this area
as well as connections for collaborations among multiple research

++++++++++++++++++++++++++ CALL FOR PAPERS ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Participants can submit papers (up to 6 pages, minimum of 2 pages)
describing positions, preliminary research or evaluation results,
prototypes, design work, works-in-progress or applications in VR. Papers
should be prepared using the IEEE Computer Society format. Submissions will
be peer-reviewed and authors of accepted papers will be invited to present
at the workshop. Demonstrations of prototype interfaces, interaction
modalities, and interactive immersive systems are highly encouraged.
Participants providing a demonstration will be asked to submit a brief
abstract and short video.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: *January 6, 2013*    *extended deadline*


 CAMERA READY: January 9, 2013, to be published in workshop proceedings

Submissions should be sent to: wivi2013organizers [at]

 Please include authors, affiliation, and contact information when

WORKSHOP DATE: Saturday March 16, 2013. For more details:

Each deadline is by midnight PST on the stated day, no matter where the
submitter is located. This workshop is suitable for a half-day of planned
presentations of accepted papers and focused lively discussions. Possible
issues for discussion, but not limited to, are natural user interfaces,
interaction modalities, selection, manipulation, quality of immersion,
physical and cognitive fatigue, low-cost immersive systems (input and
output), user goals and workflow, and analysis tools. Technical
requirements shall include a medium sized lecture space
complete with projector, screen, and multiple microphones for speaker and
audience members. Additionally, there may be a few demonstrations that
might require additional power source and tables.

 +++++++++++++++++++++++ AUTHOR INSTRUCTIONS ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

* Submission for review: position statement papers or works-in-progress 2
to 4 pages, research papers of 4 to 6 pages length. All submitted materials
must be in PDF format with embedded fonts. Camera-ready documents will be
included in the proceedings and will be archived in the IEEE Digital
Library, and therefore must be formatted using the IEEE

Computer Society format described at (Templates provided) Due to
short time frame, we ask that you prepare your initial submission as close
to camera-ready as possible.

* Donít forget to register! Authors with submissions are guaranteed access
to the workshop but must still register. At least one author from each
submission must register by
February 1, 2013 to assure publication in the conference proceedings. Other
participants are welcomed and encouraged to register and attend for the
discussion, but attendance to these participants will be limited to 30
participants on a first-come-first serve basis.


  * Camera-ready version preparation: When submitting the camera-ready
version, authors are requested to indicate:

         1) if they would like to have a hard-copy of the workshopmaterials

         2) if they allow to releasing their paper on the workshop webpage.
