IEEE VR 2019: the 26th IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces
March 23-27, 2019, Osaka, Japan
* November 29th, 2018 23:59 AoE: Submission deadline
* December 22nd, 2018 23:59 AoE: Notification of acceptance

The DC is a concentrated full-day event that will be held on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019, where students present their research interests/plans/results to a panel of senior researchers in the field and receive specific constructive feedback, followed by a reception in the evening and networking opportunities during the following days. Accepted students will be expected to give in-depth presentations of their research and will receive constructive comments from mentors. Additionally, accepted students will create a poster about their work to allow IEEE VR attendees to quickly familiarize themselves with each other’s work and to be shown to a broader audience during the conference poster session. Accepted students will have the option to publish their two-page extended abstract in the conference proceedings and to be included in the online IEEE VR program. There is also the possibility that the abstracts may be archived in the IEEExplore digital library.
Eligibility and Topics
Ideal candidates will be in the early or mid stages of their PhD, and should have a solid idea of their direction and topic, but should also have room for improvement. The DC welcomes applicants from a broad range of disciplines including VR, AR, 3D user interfaces, human-computer interaction, wearable computing, social informatics, information technology, cognitive science, and related fields.
To apply to the DC, please submit the following two documents via the Precision Conference Doctoral Consortium track at https://new.precisionconference.com/~vr as a single PDF.
1. Position paper: Paper submissions should be 2 pages in length including references. This position paper must clearly motivate, discuss, and summarize the proposed Ph.D. research, describe how the research fits into and advances research in VR and/or related fields, and report on your progress. You may additionally focus on a more specific area of the research if desired. In the concluding section, you should identify 2-3 questions/areas for improvement that you would like to discuss during the DC.
2. A one page Curriculum Vitae
Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered.
