IEEE Virtual Reality 2017 Call for Panels

IEEE VR 2017: the 24th IEEE Virtual Reality Conference

March 18-22, 2017, Los Angeles, California

IEEE VR 2017 seeks creative proposals for engaging panels. We are hoping to
host three to five panels at IEEE VR 2017, covering academic, industrial
and consumer interests in VR. Panels are designed to generate lively
discussions incorporating differing points of view around significant,
emergent, or controversial topics. Panel sessions should not be structured
as a series of individual, stand-alone presentations, but rather should
address thought-provoking material that is presented in a lively manner.
Panels should not be used to present a commercial product, nor be limited
to the views of one individual. The goal should be to involve all panel
participants and engage the audience as much as possible. Interested
parties are invited to submit proposals for interactive panel sessions.
Panel sessions are 90 minutes long and we encourage proposers to plan for
your panelists’ presentations/introductory remarks to take less than 30
minutes of that time. We also suggest that your panel have a moderator who
is not one of the panelists and who will introduce the panel, serve as
session chair, and ask initial question before opening up questions to the
group. You do not need to have identified a moderator before submitting
your proposal. The Panels Co-Chairs can help you find a moderator if your
panel is selected for VR2017. Panel proposals should be submitted
electronically and should include:

   - A title for the panel session
   - A brief description of the overall issues to be discussed (500 words
   or less)
   - The names, contact information, and short (100 words or less)
   biographies for the aorganizer and each panelist. Panelists should come
   from multiple organizations. Panelists from industry can be offered a
   complimentary one day registration.

Submission Details and Procedure

The deadline for panel submissions is Monday, November 28. Notifications
will be sent by Monday, December 5. Panel submissions must be submitted via
email to the Panels Chairs at panelschairs2017 [at] For more
information, to inquire about a particular panel topic, or to submit a
proposal, please contact the VR 2017 Panels Chairs:
