Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the ICAT-EGVE 2018 Conference, held 7-9 November 2018 in Limassol, Cyprus. This is the merger of the 28th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2018) and the 23rd Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2018).

Together these are two of the oldest international conferences in the world on Artificial Reality and Virtual Environments, and provide a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and 3D User Interfaces. This is a great opportunity to renew old friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Cyprus has to offer.
Limassol, a city counting centuries of history, is located between two of the most renowned ancient kingdoms of the island, Amathus at the east and Kourion at the west. “Lemessos” as it is called by locals, is one of the fastest growing modern metropolises in Europe, with the most distinct project being the Limassol Marina. The beautiful coastline now covers a 15 kilometers distance, lined with hotels and beach bars and cafes, interspersed with eucalyptus groves and linked by a promenade popular with walkers and joggers. For more information see here<>.

ICAT-EGVE 2018 is organized by the newly established RISE Research Center. The Research center on Interactive media, Smart systems and Emerging technologies (RISE) aims to become a Center of Excellence and a hub across the three continents bordering Cyprus, facilitating thus the local scientific, technological, and economic growth of the region. More information about the RISE Research Center can be found here<>.

ICAT-EGVE 2018 seeks original, high-quality papers describing research, applications or systems in all areas of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Telexistence, and 3D User Interfaces. Research papers should describe results that contributes to advancements in the following areas:

  *   3D interaction for VR/AR
  *   VR/AR systems and toolkits
  *   User studies and evaluation for VR/AR/MR
  *   Telexistence, Telepresence and Tele-immersion
  *   Haptics, audio, and other non-visual modalities
  *   Serious games and edutainment using VR/AR/MR
  *   Presence, cognition, and embodiment in VR/AR/MR
  *   Novel devices (both input and output) for VR, AR, MR, and haptics
  *   Multi-user and distributed VR, AR, tele-immersion and telepresence
  *   Immersive projection technologies and other advanced display technologies

Submissions in other related areas are welcome too.

All accepted papers will be published in the Digital Library of the Eurographics.

Full papers must be in English and not exceed eight (8) pages in length. Short papers must be in English and not exceed four (4) pages in length. Both full and short papers should be formatted using the ​Eurographics format<>​<>. A ​sample LaTeX document​<> <> and a Word template<> are available.

ICAT-EGVE uses a double-blind review process. Therefore, submissions should not contain information that unnecessarily identifies the authors or their institutions or places of work. All papers must be submitted electronically as PDF. Authors are encouraged to submit videos to aid the program committee in the review of their submissions.

The submission tool can be found here<>.

The Call For Papers in PDF format is available here<>.

Note: Submissions should be original, unpublished work, and should not be in submission to other venues concurrently. Any dual submissions will be rejected outright without review.
