WEVR 2015 – Workshop on Everyday Virtual Reality
Rethinking Virtual Reality for Home and Office Environments

Traditionally, Virtual Reality has been conceived for purpose-built 
highly instrumented laboratories. However, the upcoming release of 
consumer grade Virtual Reality head-mounted displays will allow users to 
experience VR in everyday environments such as their own home or office 
where obstacles are commonplace and tracking is not trivial. If consumer 
VR is to evolve beyond the desktop paradigm, a rethinking of the way we 
design and implement interactive VR systems for these environments is 
needed. This one-day workshop will bring together researchers and 
industry practitioners to explore these new challenges and define a new 
research agenda.

We invite authors to submit 4 page position papers, preliminary research 
results, novel concepts or case studies (up to a maximum of 6 pages). 
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

§ Novel approaches to user tracking and locomotion interfaces

§ Design of Virtual Reality interactive experiences

§ 3D User Interfaces for Desktop Virtual Reality

§ Tangible and haptics support to interaction with the environments

§ Virtual Reality health care at home

§ Virtual agents

§ Collaborative Virtual Environments

Papers should be submitted via our EasyChair 
(easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wevr2015). Submissions must be 
anonymised and in PDF format, using the IEEE template. A committee of 
expert reviewers in the aforementioned domains will review all submissions.
IMPORTANT DATES

§ Submission Deadline: 2 February 2015

§ Notification: 15 February 2014

§ Camera-Ready: 1 March 2015

§ Conference Early Registration: 22 February 2015

§ WEVR Workshop: 23-24 March 2015

Please send any queries to Adalberto Simeone ([log in to unmask]). 
For further information visit wevr2015.adalsimeone.me. At least one 
author per paper must register for the workshop as well as one day of 
the IEEE VR/3DUI conference. Authors of accepted papers will be expected 
to give a 10 minutes presentation at the workshop. Proceedings will be 
submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Digital Library.
