Call For Papers: IEEE VR 2019 Workshop on Applied VR for Enhanced Healthcare (AVEH)

The use of VR and XR to enhance health and well-being is rapidly growing. However, there is often limited Knowledge Transfer between the healthcare and technology disciplines. Moving forward, we need a more cross-disciplinary understanding of how the unique properties and potential of VR can address some of the fundamental healthcare challenges facing society today.
This workshop aims to explore how fundamental understanding of VR can be applied into various healthcare settings and to bring together expert knowledge in both technology and healthcare in order to explore how the potential of VR can be used to support and enhance health and well-being.  We will also encourage discussion of the challenges to the development and adoption of VR in healthcare, and how these might be addressed.
The workshop will draw together researchers, developers, clinicians, and industry partners to promote trans-disciplinary research to improve the quality and efficacy of applied VR for enhanced healthcare.



We invite participants to submit two different categories of submissions:

1) Project papers should describe interdisciplinary joint projects showing a collaboration between different related disciplinies, such as computer science, medicine, health, psychology etc.

2) Research papers should describe either position statements, preliminary research results, novel concepts, soft- and hardware solutions, or case studies, addressing the way in which VR/AR technologies can be leveraged to enhance healthcare. Our preference will be for submissions which seek to combine an understanding of VR technology with specific goals and methods for providing alternative or enhanced ways to improve the delivery and efficacy of healthcare. 

We solicit high quality, original submissions in all areas related, but not limited to, the following topics: 


All deadlines are Anywhere on Earth (GMT/UTC‐12:00).
