3rd International Workshop on Virtual and Augmented Assistive Technology
At IEEE Virtual Reality 2015, Arles, France
March 23, 2015
http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~jpq/vaat/

The IEEE VR 2015 Workshop on Virtual and Augmented Assistive Technology 
is intended to bring together technological and clinical research 
communities to advance the state-of-the-art in Virtual Reality (VR) and 
Augmented Reality (AR) assistive technology. Over the past several 
decades, there has been a host of research conducted to improve 
rehabilitation and enable assistive technology for persons with 
disabilities (e.g., cognitive, physical) through VR and AR. However, 
this area needs to take more advantage of state-of-the-art VR and AR 
technology. We believe this situation could be improved if the two 
contributing communities to this area - the technology and the clinical 
communities - had greater opportunity for more direct interaction and 
collaboration to advance the field. This is the primary goal of this 
workshop.

Specifically, we are inviting submissions of position papers and 
preliminary research that focus on
1) novel Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies that could be used 
to enhance assistive technologies and accessibility, although they may 
not have been used for this yet and
2) insights into and studies involving persons with disabilities and the 
impact of VR, AR, and associated technologies.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Accessibility of VR/AR for Persons with Disabilities
- Virtual Reality for Persons with Disabilities
- Augmented Reality for Persons with Disabilities
- 3DUI for Persons with Disabilities
- Mobile AR/VR Applications for Persons with Disabilities
- Human Movement Analysis
- Games for Rehabilitation
- Clinical Studies using Technologies for Persons with Disabilities
- Usability Studies and Human Factors
- Unlisted but related topics are also welcome

For accepted papers, authors must make a 15-20 minute oral presentation 
at this half day workshop.
Papers should be 2-6 pages in length and prepared using the IEEE 
Computer Society conference style format described at: 
http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html
Accepted papers will be submitted to be indexed by IEEE digital library. 
Both VAAT 2013 and 2014 were indexed. Thus, we expect VAAT 2015 will 
also be indexed.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format using the online submission 
system on easy chair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vaat2015

Submission Deadline: January 26, 2015
Acceptance Notification: February 9, 2015
