Dear all,

* Sorry for cross-posting *
NIDIT Extension, two more days.

We are extending the deadline to Jan 18 at midnight anytime on earth. In
other words, end of the day on Tuesday. We will start reviewing early on
Jan 19. As soon as we start reviewing, we will close the submission. Please
consider submitting.


Workshop on Emerging Novel Input Devices and Interaction Techniques.
Workshop hosted by IEEE VR 2022, March 12-13, 2022,  Christchurch, New
Zealand, (Online)

Virtual reality has finally become a mainstream technology. Recent advances
in commercial VR hardware have led to high-resolution, ergonomic, – and
critically – low cost head-mounted displays. Advances in commercial input
devices and interaction techniques have arguably not kept pace with
advances in displays. For instance, most HMDs include a tracked input
device and these “controllers” are still fairly similar to the earliest
examples of 3D controllers used in the VR systems of the 1980s. Interaction
in commercial VR systems has similarly lagged; despite many advances in 3D
interaction in the past three decades of VR research, interaction in
commercial systems largely relies on classical techniques like the virtual
hand or ray-casting.


This full-day workshop will bring together researchers and industry
practitioners to discuss and experience the future of input devices for VR,
AR, and 3D User Interfaces, and help chart a course for the future of 3D
interaction techniques. We invite authors to submit 4-6 page papers on any
of the following topics:

§   Form factors and ergonomics of input devices

§   Hardware design and prototyping

§   Mapping of input to varying degrees of freedom

§   Haptic/tactile feedback

§   Novel input devices

§   Repurposing of existing devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets) for
immersive contexts

§   Tracked passive or custom props

§   Novel interaction techniques supported by custom devices

§   User studies evaluating the above topics

Related but unlisted topics are also welcome. In addition to a presentation
at the workshop, authors of all accepted submissions will be strongly
encouraged to demonstrate their novel input device and interaction
techniques in an interactive demo format following the presentations.

Important Dates:

IEEE VR Conference Papers Author Notification: December 22, 2021, AoE

Submission Deadline: January 18 (If you are submitting a paper from the VR
conference track, please include review and changes)

Notification Deadline: January 20, 2022, AoE

Camera-Ready:  January 27, 2022, AoE

Submission Information:

Papers should be submitted via PCS:

Submissions must be anonymized and in PDF format, in the VGTC format:

All submissions will be reviewed by experts in the areas listed above. At
least one author of each accepted submission must register for the workshop
and IEEE VR 2021 conference. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to
give a 10 minute at the workshop, and encouraged to give a demonstration of
their research as a video. Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in
the IEEE Xplore Library. We will also host the papers in this site.
