IEEE VR 2019: the 26th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User
Interfaces

March 23-27, 2019, Osaka, Japan

http://ieeevr.org/2019/
<https://ieeevrpublicity-dot-yamm-track.appspot.com/Redirect?ukey=1Hq7YtN0F5ozdTKqa5UIxcegrfouKuDoxHjwijz7Td2g-114864460&key=YAMMID-23753020&link=http%3A%2F%2Fieeevr.org%2F2019%2F>


We invite VR researchers and enthusiasts to submit videos showcasing
virtual reality research, applications, and other creative work. Video
submissions may also include 3D user interfaces, mixed reality, or
augmented reality. We are proud to announce two video submission tracks:
Technical Video and Creative VR. Accepted video submissions will be
featured on the IEEE Virtual Reality Conference*YouTube Channel
<https://ieeevrpublicity-dot-yamm-track.appspot.com/Redirect?ukey=1Hq7YtN0F5ozdTKqa5UIxcegrfouKuDoxHjwijz7Td2g-114864460&key=YAMMID-23753020&link=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fuser%2Fieeevrconf>*
.

*Submission Deadline*: December 7, 2018.


*Creative VR Track*

Submissions to the Creative VR track should be artistic, creative,
experimental, narrative, or journalistic in nature and produced in
360-degree spherical format. Audio-visual immersion and user participation
have the potential to heighten a viewer's sense of presence and level of
engagement with a presentation form that is closer to how we actually
perceive and engage with the world around us. We are interested in
originality and innovation in the design of immersive experiences. Video
submissions in this track should be limited to 3 to 8 minutes in length and
adhere with the specification outlined below. Your video should include a
title slide at its beginning with the video's title, authors, and
affiliations (similar to a typical presentation title slide).


*Technical Video Track*

Submissions to the Technical Video Track should be videos whose intent is
to demonstrate preliminary results, consolidated researched results,
works-in-progress, and research/technical demonstrations. We also invite
video demos of creative VR experiences, documented and produced as a framed
standard video. Technical video submissions should be limited to 2 to 5
minutes in length and comply with the specification outlined below. Your
video should include a title slide at its beginning with the video’s title,
authors, and affiliations (similar to a typical presentation title slide).

Videos should be able to stand on their own, adequately present their
topic, and be narrated in English. Videos can and should be submitted
independently of a paper submission, although videos describing work in a
submitted paper are welcomed. Selected videos will be included in the
electronic proceedings and will also be prominently displayed during the
IEEE Virtual Reality conference.


*Submission Information*

Submissions must be submitted via email, to the Videos Chairs (videos2019

*Technical specifications for submission: *

When preparing the video, please make it as professional as possible.
Producing a video already requires a significant amount of effort, and
spending just a little more effort to raise the quality can make a big
difference. Submitted videos should follow the following guidelines:


*Technical Video Track:*

   - Length: 2 to 5 minutes.
   - Standard framed *HD*video format.
   - Your video will need to be submitted via a URL link to the MP4 file
   for download.
   - Titles and credits should not be displayed more ten seconds: the
   content is the most important!
   - *MP4*container using the H.264 video and AAC audio codec!
   - The MP4 must contain one video track and audio track.
   - Please follow the YouTube recommended encoding settings (for frame
   rate and bitrate): *https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171
   <https://ieeevrpublicity-dot-yamm-track.appspot.com/Redirect?ukey=1Hq7YtN0F5ozdTKqa5UIxcegrfouKuDoxHjwijz7Td2g-114864460&key=YAMMID-23753020&link=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.google.com%2Fyoutube%2Fanswer%2F1722171>*
   - Encode your video using square pixels for the pixel aspect ratio and
   disable interlacing.
   - We strongly recommend 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of at least
   of 1280x720px. High frame rate and resolutions are possible if within the
   YouTube recommendations.


*Creative VR Track:*

   - Length: 3 to 8 minutes.
   - Production might be live-action, CGI omni-directional rendering,
   visual FX compositing, …
   - Titles and credits should not be displayed more ten seconds: the
   content is the most important!
   - Spherical/equirectangular 360 degree format in monoscopic or
   stereoscopic 3D (top-bottom layout with left on top).
   - Your video will need to be submitted via an unlisted YouTube link and
   a URL link to the MP4 for download. Use the YouTube 360º Video Metadata App
   to ensure that your video is recognized as an interactive 360º
video: *https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6178631
   <https://ieeevrpublicity-dot-yamm-track.appspot.com/Redirect?ukey=1Hq7YtN0F5ozdTKqa5UIxcegrfouKuDoxHjwijz7Td2g-114864460&key=YAMMID-23753020&link=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.google.com%2Fyoutube%2Fanswer%2F6178631>*
   - Aspect ratio is 2:1 for mono or 1:1 for stereoscopic 3D (top-bottom).
   Recommended horizontal resolution is 4k. YouTube recommends 16:9 aspect
   ratio, but the correct 2:1 aspect ratio for spherical projection seem to
   work as well and is preferred.
   - Format MP4 container with one video track and audio track using the
   H.264 video and AAC audio codec!
   - Please follow the YouTube recommended encoding settings (for frame
   rate and bitrate):  *https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171
   <https://ieeevrpublicity-dot-yamm-track.appspot.com/Redirect?ukey=1Hq7YtN0F5ozdTKqa5UIxcegrfouKuDoxHjwijz7Td2g-114864460&key=YAMMID-23753020&link=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.google.com%2Fyoutube%2Fanswer%2F1722171>*
