*** Call for Papers ***

IEEE VR 2007 seeks original, high-quality research papers in all areas
of virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D
user interfaces. Research papers should describe results that
contribute to advancements in state-of-the-art software, hardware,
algorithms, interaction, or systems development.

Papers must be in English, not exceed eight (8) pages in length and be
formatted using the IEEE Computer Society format described at
http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html. IEEE VR uses a
double-blind review process. Submissions should not contain
information (including citations and optional videos) that
unnecessarily identifies the authors or their institutions or places
of work. All papers must be submitted electronically. Authors who do
not have web access should contact one of the program chairs listed
below.

Authors may also submit videos to aid the program committee in the
review of their submissions. Videos must be submitted following the
instructions at the conference website. Videos submitted with papers
will automatically be considered for possible inclusion in the video
proceedings. Videos submitted with papers must be free of identifying
information, but final videos for the proceedings may also be
submitted after the paper is accepted.

*** For more information, contact the Program Chairs:
William Sherman, Desert Research Institute
Ming Lin, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

*** Call for Research and Application Sketches ***

The VR 2007 sketches (or "short papers") program provides a forum to
present the latest applications and research developments in all areas
of virtual reality, augmented and mixed reality, and 3D user
interfaces. Sketches can provide overviews of newly-fielded VR systems
or first looks at new research results. Sketches will be peer-reviewed
and published in the regular proceedings.

Research and Application Sketches must be in English, not exceed four
(4) pages in length and be formatted using the IEEE Computer Society
format described at http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html. IEEE
VR uses a double-blind review process. Submissions should not contain
information (including citations and optional videos) that
unnecessarily identifies the authors or their institutions or places
of work. All papers must be submitted electronically. Authors who do
not have web access should contact one of the research sketches chairs
listed below.

Authors may also submit videos to aid the program committee in the
review of their submissions. Videos must be submitted following the
instructions at the conference website. Videos submitted with research
sketches will automatically be considered for possible inclusion in
the video proceedings.

*** Call for Videos ***

We invite participants to submit videos showing the results of
VR-related research or applications, including efforts from 3D user
interfaces and mixed or augmented reality. Videos describing work in a
submitted paper are welcome. However, videos can also be submitted
independently of a paper submission. Selected videos will be included
in the Video Proceedings.

Videos must be narrated in English, should stand on their own and not
exceed 5 minutes in length. Each video must be accompanied by a
one-page description including the title, a 200-word abstract,
references, acknowledgements, and contact information with author
names, affiliations and an email address for the lead author.

*** For more information, or details on video submission, contact the
Video Chair:
Chadwick Wingrave, Virginia Tech

*** Call for Panels ***

Lively discussions incorporating differing points of view help focus
attention on significant and/or controversial topics. Interested
parties are invited to submit proposals for interactive panel sessions
with the goal of addressing a specific VR or related topic from
several perspectives. Panel sessions should not be structured as a
series of individual stand-alone presentations but rather should
address debatable material that is presented in a lively manner. The
goal should be to involve all panel participants and engage the total
audience.

Panel proposals should be submitted electronically and should include
a title for the panel session, a brief description of the overall
issues to be discussed (roughly 250 words each), and the names,
contact information and short (roughly 100 words) biographies for the
organizer and each panelist. Panelists should come from multiple
organizations.

*** For more information, to inquire about a particular panel topic,  
or to
submit a proposal contact the Panels Chairs:
Benjamin Lok, University of Florida
Tobias Höllerer, University of California, Santa Barbara

*** Call for Workshops ***

Full-day workshops are intended to bring together researchers,
developers, and users for a lively discussion of issues and an
informal exchange of ideas and information. Workshops may target a
specific application area, a specific research area, or a topic of
general interest. We invite individuals or teams interested in
presenting such a workshop to submit proposals.

Workshop proposals should be submitted electronically and should
include a title, a brief topic description (approximately 250 words),
and the names, contact information and brief biographies (roughly 100
words) of the workshop organizers. The proposal should also identify
the intended audience, its size, and all technical requirements,
including space, audio/visual, computer, and communication needs, etc.

*** For more information, or to submit a proposal, please contact the
Workshop Chairs:
Dirk Reiners, Iowa State University
Nicholas Polys, Virginia Tech

*** Call for Tutorials ***

Learning and sharing knowledge are at the heart of our
success. Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for
full-day or half-day tutorials to be presented on March 10 or
11. Proposed tutorials may address topics of interest to the VR, mixed
or augmented reality, or 3D user interface communities, and may be at
an introductory or advanced level.

Proposals for tutorials should be submitted electronically and should
include a title for the tutorial, proposed length, a brief description
of the topics to be addressed (roughly 250 words), the level and
intended audience, and the names, contact information and a short
biography (roughly 100 words each) for the proposed instructors.
Proposals are welcome on topics that have been previously addressed;
new approaches or insights are especially valued. Submissions should
include a statement saying how proposals differ from recent topics
that were similar.

*** Call for Research Demonstrations ***

We seek research demonstrations from laboratories or research groups
(academic, government, or industrial). Demos should interest the broad
VR community and be presentable in a conference setting.

Accepted research demonstrations will be invited to participate in an
exhibition of new and innovative work. The conference will provide
basic infrastructure for the demos. In addition, authors of accepted
demonstrations will have a time slot in the Research Demonstration
Session to communicate more generally information about the specific
demo and other work being performed at the lab. Proposals for research
demonstrations should be submitted by email to the research
demonstration chairs. Proposals should include a one-page description
of the demo and the set up, as well as a one-page description of the
research lab itself (no more than two pages total).

the world's foremost VR researchers and application builders. We
invite companies, government organizations, and academic institutions
to showcase VR-related products -- hardware, software, integrated
systems, peripherals, innovations, literature or anything else of
interest to our conference participants. Regular refreshments will be
offered in the exhibit hall and the conference reception will also be
held there, ensuring a good audience for exhibitors. Posters and
research demos will also be located near the exhibits. Additional
sponsorship and marketing opportunities will also be available.
