Second call for research demos at IEEE VR.
Proposal submission deadline: *December 15*

*IEEE Virtual Reality 2017 Call for Research Demos*

IEEE VR 2017: the 24th IEEE Virtual Reality Conference

March 18-22, 2017, Los Angeles, California
IEEE VR 2017 seeks research demonstrations from laboratories or research
groups (academic, government, or industry). Demos should interest the broad
VR community and be presentable in a conference setting exhibiting new and
innovative work. The conference will provide basic infrastructure (space, a
table, and power). Additionally, authors of accepted demos will present an
overview in a fast-forward Research Demonstration Session to summarize
their demo and relate it to research being performed at their lab. A demo
proposal should include:

1) A two-page extended abstract describing the demo and the research itself

2) A schematic of the layout (separate document showing components such as

3) A brief video showing the demo in action (the URL should be included in
the proposal – youtube or vimeo preferred)

The submission should clearly describe the overall architecture of the
system or technology demonstrated. Authors should put great emphasis on the
work’s motivation, applications, and novelty. The description should also
explain how the audience can interact with the demo. Abstracts for accepted
demos will be included in the conference proceedings, so they must follow
the IEEE Computer Society format at
We are also working to give authors the option to include abstracts in the
IEEE Digital Library.

Accepted demos must be up and running during dedicated demo sessions and
during lunch breaks. It is further appreciated if they run at other times
(e.g., coffee breaks), but that is not required for acceptance.


December 15, 2017 — Proposal submission
January 3, 2017 — Notification of decisions
