Call for Lab/Project Presentations

Laboratory and Project Presentations Track

We invite academic laboratories working in all areas of virtual 
environments, mixed reality, and 3D user interfaces to submit a proposal 
to make a Laboratory Presentation or Project Presentation at the IEEE VR 
2015 Conference in Arles, France ( Track 
presentations will highlight the breadth and depth of research 
activities from laboratories and large, multi-year projects.

The Laboratory and Project Presentations Track is designed to introduce 
the international community to VR research and to showcase the diversity 
and vibrancy of that research worldwide. Session attendees and 
presenters will find it a place to meet and interact with other academic 
and industrial researchers where they may find good students or 
postdocs, identify internship opportunities, or begin conversations 
leading to new friends and colleagues and new collaborations.

Why submit? Accepted presentations in the Laboratory and Project 
Presentation Track will give their authors an opportunity to:

- Broaden the community of researchers who are aware of your group’s work.
- Describe what is unique about your work. Do you have unique research 
facilities and equipment? With whom do you collaborate? What is your 
funding source-- National? EU or International?
- Present a broad view of your work (rather than, as for a paper, a 
report on a single result)
- Describe the motivation for your research
- Discuss the challenges of the work and your approach to addressing 
those challenges
- Talk or speculate about future directions.

Other exposure for your work: Poster and Proceedings. Accepted proposals 
will be invited to prepare a poster for display throughout the 
conference. Laboratory and Project Presentation descriptions (2 pages) 
will be included in the IEEE VR 2015 Conference Proceedings and will be 
indexed in the IEEE Xplore digital library.

Note that Laboratories and Projects can also display their work by 
purchasing exhibit space in the Conference Exhibition. See the call for 

Submission, review, and notification. Submissions are limited to two 
pages. Note that the submission materials include the submitter’s name: 
we are not using a double-blind-review process.

Important dates

October 27, 2014: Submission Deadline
November 10, 2014: Notification

Submission Details. Please format your two page submission using the 
IEEE Computer Society guidelines described at Submissions and questions can 
be directed to the Laboratory and Project Presentations chairs at

Your submission should address topics such as:

What is the research focus of your laboratory or project?
What is your research strategy?
What makes your laboratory or project unique and noteworthy?
What are some recent accomplishments of your laboratory/project?
