Call For Papers
The 22nd ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology
November 2-4, 2016
Munich, Germany

The ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST) 2016 will be hosted by the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and held in Garching near Munich, Germany, during November 2-4, 2016.

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

Submission Details:
Full/Short Paper submission:
Papers must be submitted electronically. The online submission system will open soon.
Paper Length:
The maximum length for a full paper submission is 10 pages. The maximum length for a short paper submission is 4 pages.
Anonymity Guidelines:

  *   Remove author and institutional information from the author list on the title page.
  *   Remove author information from all paper headers.
  *   Remove clues from the main text that would directly identify any of the authors.
  *   Anonymize your PDF file. Note that PDF creator programs may accidentally leave Author information in the file header.
Your own published work that appears on mainstream (including online) and are available for the reviewer must be cited in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the identity of the authors. For example: "In [3], Mountain and River have proposed ..." is acceptable, whereas "In [3], we have proposed ..." is not, when reference [3] is listed such as "Mountain, A. and River, A., Detecting Mountains and Rivers, IEEE Trans. PAMI, 6(6):721-741, November 1984".

Failure to comply with the above requirements will result in automatic rejection of the paper.
Authors are required to submit anonymous fully formatted papers, with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for final publication. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines (
Supplementary Materials:
Submissions may be optionally accompanied by additional materials such as images, videos, or electronic documents. These materials do not form a part of the official submission and will be viewed only at the discretion of the reviewers. All content should be in a portable format that is unlikely to require the user to download additional programs (for example, PDF or HTML for documents, JPEG for images, and QuickTime or MPEG for video). Additional materials should not exceed a total of 50MB. To the extent possible, accepted papers should stand on their own, with the additional material providing supplementary information or confirmation of results. It is, however, appropriate to refer to video footage in the paper.

Conference attendance:

Paper/poster acceptance is contingent on at least one author registering for the conference and presenting the work.
*ACM sponsorship pending
