Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit a manuscript for consideration and
possible publication in: Special issue on Visual communication cues for
remote collaboration: Journal of Visual Communication and Image
Representation (2019 Impact Factor: 2.479).

In many real-world scenarios, people need help from a remote expert to
operate on physical objects. For example, when a broken machine needs to be
fixed by an expert who is not present on location, when a doctor needs to
conduct an operation on a patient with the essential help of a distant
surgeon, or when a crime scene investigator needs help from a forensics
expert. To support these scenarios, it is essential to construct and
provide a shared visual space for common grounding and reference, which has
been challenging given its expenses in computation and transferring it over
the network.

This special issue targets on novel design principles, technical
advancements and evaluation methodologies that are to address issues
surrounding constructing shared visual spaces, conveying multimodal
communication cues, developing proper interactions and interfaces for
remote collaboration. The primary objective of this special issue is
therefore to compile a collection of high quality contributions from
researchers to reflect the latest state of the art of research in this
space.  It will foster a focused attention in this new development of the
field and to serve as a forum for researchers all over the world to
exchange and discuss the latest advances.

Papers to be submitted to this special issue must focus on techniques and
methodologies surrounding shared visual space and visual communication cues
(e.g. re-construction of workspace, combination of several input and/or
output communication cues such as gesture, speech, vision, graphics, gaze,
haptics, touch, etc.). All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and
papers will be selected based on their quality and relevance to the theme
of this special issue. Topics considered for this special issue include,
but are not limited to, the following:
• Novel 2d/3d construction methods and techniques of  video and image scenes
• Virtual and augmented reality usage for shared visual space
• Extraction and augmentation methods and techniques of visual multimodal
communication cues
• Design and evaluation of shared visual space and communication cues for
remote collaboration
• Tools for building augmented reality systems to support remote
• Interaction models for collaboration in AR
• AR based human-machine interfaces, frameworks, reference models,
architectures, tools and systems
• Surveys and reviews of recent development and research relevant to the
special issue topics.

Submission deadline: 30th June, 2021

Instructions for authors:
Submissions must not have been previously published, with the exception
that substantial extensions of conference and workshop papers (at least 30%
new content) can be considered.

Please select the article type: “VSI: Visual Communication Cues" to submit
the paper. For more information, please visit:
