WEVR 2015: 1st Workshop on Everyday Virtual Reality
IEEE Virtual Reality 2015
23/24 March 2015 (TBC)
Arles Congress Center, Camargue - Provence, France

Rethinking Virtual Reality for Home and Office Environments

Traditionally, Virtual Reality has been conceived for purpose-built
highly instrumented laboratories. However, the upcoming release of
consumer grade Virtual Reality head-mounted displays will allow users
to experience VR in everyday environments such as their own home or
office where obstacles are commonplace and tracking is not trivial. If
consumer VR is to evolve beyond the desktop paradigm, a rethinking of
the way we design and implement interactive VR systems for these
environments is needed. This half-day workshop will bring together
researchers and industry practitioners to explore these new challenges
and define a new research agenda.

We invite authors to submit 4 page position papers, preliminary
research results, novel concepts or case studies (up to a maximum of 6
pages). Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Novel approaches to user tracking and locomotion interfaces
* Design of Virtual Reality interactive experiences
* 3D User Interfaces for Desktop Virtual Reality
* Tangible and haptics support for interaction with Virtual Environments
* Virtual Reality health care at home
* Virtual agents
* Collaborative Virtual Environments

Papers should be submitted via our EasyChair
( Submissions must be
anonymised and in PDF format, using the IEEE template. A committee of
expert reviewers in the aforementioned domains will review all
