*ICAT-EGVE 2018 Call For Papers*

The ICAT-EGVE 2018 conference will be held November 7th – 9th in Limassol,
Cyprus. This is the merger of the 28th International Conference on
Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2018) and the 23rd Eurographics
Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2018).

Together these are two of the oldest international conferences in the world
on Artificial Reality and Virtual Environments, and provide a unique
opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their
experience and knowledge of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed
Reality and 3D User Interfaces. This is a great opportunity to renew old
friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Cyprus has to offer.

Limassol, a city counting centuries of history, is located between two of
the most renowned ancient kingdoms of the island, Amathus at the east and
Kourion at the west. "Lemessos" as it is called by locals, is one of the
fastest growing modern metropolises in Europe, with the most distinct
project being the Limassol Marina. The beautiful coastline now covers a 15
kilometers distance, lined with hotels and beach bars and cafes,
interspersed with eucalyptus groves and linked by a promenade popular with
walkers and joggers. For more information see here
<http://icat-egve2018.rise.org.cy/about-limassol/>.

ICAT-EGVE 2018 is organized by the newly established RISE Research
Center. The Research center on Interactive media, Smart systems and
Emerging technologies (RISE) aims to become a Center of Excellence and a
hub across the three continents bordering Cyprus, facilitating thus the
local scientific, technological, and economic growth of the region. More
information about the RISE Research Center can be found here
<http://www.rise.org.cy/>.

ICAT-EGVE 2018 seeks original, high-quality papers describing research,
applications or systems in all areas of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality,
Mixed Reality, Telexistence, and 3D User Interfaces. Research papers should
describe results that contribute to advancements in the following areas:

   - 3D interaction for VR/AR
   - VR/AR systems and toolkits
   - User studies and evaluation for VR/AR/MR
   - Telexistence, Telepresence and Tele-immersion
   - Haptics, audio, and other non-visual modalities
   - Serious games and edutainment using VR/AR/MR
   - Presence, cognition, and embodiment in VR/AR/MR
   - Novel devices (both input and output) for VR, AR, MR, and haptics
   - Multi-user and distributed VR, AR, tele-immersion and telepresence
   - Immersive projection technologies and other advanced display
   technologies

Submissions in other related areas are welcome too.

All accepted papers will be published in the Digital Library of the
Eurographics.
