2nd International Workshop on Immersive Volumetric Interaction (WIVI 2014)
at IEEE Virtual Reality 2014, Minneapolis, MN, USA
Saturday, March 29, 2014

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
users' sense of immersion or workflow. Additionally, there is a strong
interest in scaling interfaces from the desktop display to higher immersive
display systems. As a result, cost, availability, and familiarity all play
a role in designing interaction. Solutions tend to be focused on separately
in these communities, however this will serve as a common forum to openly
discuss these issues and ideas for solutions.

The IEEE VR 2014 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 users' 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 half-day 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 disciplines. The
program will consist 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.

 We invite novel submissions (papers up to 6 pages, minimum of 2 pages)
describing positions, preliminary research or evaluation results,
prototypes, design work, works-in-progress or applications focus on
interaction with volumetric data in immersive visualizations and/or
multiple objects representing a volume in virtual environments.

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: February 19, 2014 (midnight PST)


CAMERA READY: March 15, 2014

EVENT DATE: Saturday March 29, 2014, 1:30pm - 5:00pm.

Submissions should be submitted in PDF format by emailing your submission
to [log in to unmask] You may contact the organizers for any

Please include authors, affiliation, and contact information when

Further details regarding submissions and other information can be found

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) We ask that you prepare your initial submission as close to
camera-ready as possible.

At least one author must give an oral presentation of about 15-20 min of
their work at the workshop.
