AIMS AND SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP

This workshop will be part of the IEEE VR 2007 conference,
co-located with the IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces (3DUI).

The goal of this half-day workshop is to bring together researchers
and industry working in the area of tracking and to talk about
making tracking actually work.  To that end, the workshop is to
provide a broad picture of what is the current state of the art,
what are the various technologies available, and what are issues for
further research and development.

Within this context, "tracking" is meant to include all kinds of
techniques, methods, devices, and algorithms that are used to make
the computer "sense" the location or configuration of users, parts
of users, or objects. Applications are in the areas of VR, AR,
animation, etc.

The workshop will consist of two parts: the first and main one will
comprise presentations, and the second one will be used for panel
and plenary discussions.

The list of presentation topics includes:

-  tracking utilizing electro-magnetic, inertial, optical
-  novel / unconventional technologies for tracking
-  hybrid tracking
-  wide-area / large workspace tracking (e.g., GPS, Galileo, or others)
-  high-speed or high-precision tracking
-  accuracy, repeatability, registration issues
-  correction and other post-processing of tracking data
-  camera-based tracking (with markers or markerless)
-  user interface issues that are directly related to tracking
-  ...

As usual, this list of topics is not exhaustive.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

WORKSHOP FORMAT & INTENDED AUDIENCE

The workshop addresses a wide range of topics, therefore we welcome
participants from a wide range of disciplines and industries, e.g.
HCI, VR/AR hardware/software/applications, usability, entertainment,
algorithms, etc.

The workshop will be divided into two parts. In the first and main
part, there will be a number of presentations pertaining to the
relevant topics. In the second, somewhat smaller part, we would like
to discuss open issues, current trends, long-term visions, further
avenues of research, etc. This discussion will probably be a
combined panel and plenary discussion.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUBMISSIONS

Participants are invited to submit novel research results,
state-of-the-art, work in progress, experience reports, publicly
presentable ideas for unimplemented and/or unusual systems, or,
possibly, substantiated visions for future work.

Workshop papers submissions will be reviewed by the workshop committee.

In addition, they will provide the basis for the plenary discussion.

Papers should not exceed 6 pages (short papers, i.e., <= 4 pages,
are welcome, too).  They should be formatted according to the VGTC
publication format in quality PDF. Guidelines and style files can be
found at http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html .

Supplemental materials (e.g. videos) are welcome to support the
submission.  (Videos should be in a common format, e.g., MPEG-1,
MPEG-4, XviD, DivX, or Quicktime.)

Submissions should include Name, Affiliation, and Contact Address.

All accepted workshop papers will be published with ISBN as workshop
proceedings (by Shaker).  In addition, they will be published on the
conference DVD (including the supplemental material).

Submissions should be made via Email to:

                  zach_REMOVE_ME at in.tu-clausthal.de

We will ask authors to commit to personally attend the workshop to
present the papers.
