Scope and Topics

Research in Virtual Reality (VR) is concerned with computing 
technologies that allow humans to see, hear, talk, think, learn, and 
solve problems in virtual and augmented environments. Research in 
Artificial Intelligence (AI) addresses technologies that allow computing 
machines to mimic these same human abilities. Although these two fields 
evolved separately, they share an interest in human senses, skills, and 
knowledge production. Thus, bringing them together will enable us to 
create more natural and realistic virtual worlds and develop better, 
more effective applications. Ultimately, this will lead to a future in 
which humans and humans, humans and machines, and machines and machines 
are interacting naturally in virtual worlds, with use cases and benefits 
we are only just beginning to imagine.

The First IEEE International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and 
Virtual Reality (AIVR 2018) is a unique event, addressing researchers 
and industries from all areas of AI as well as Virtual, Augmented, and 
Mixed Reality. It provides an international forum for the exchange 
between those fields, to present advances in the state of the art, 
identify emerging research topics, and together define the future of 
these exciting research domains. We invite researchers from Virtual, as 
well as Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) to participate and 
submit their work to the program. Likewise, any work on AI that has a 
relation to any of these fields or potential for the usage in any of 
them is welcome.

Areas of interest for the technical program include but are not limited 

Systems, including techniques, performance, and implementation
- System components, virtual reality platforms

Authors are invited to submit an 8-page (regular), 4-page (short), or 
2-page (demo and video) technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE 
format following the guidelines available on the AIVR 2018 web page. The 
conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. 
Distinguished quality papers and posters presented at the conference 
will be selected for best paper awards and for publication in 
internationally renowned journals. For further information including 
paper formats, please refer to the conference website: or contact us via Wolfgang Hurst,
