Hi all,

You may already know that we have two VR related conferences in
November and December this year. Submission deadlines of these two
events are approaching, but each of them provides unique opportunities
to present your work with differentiated features such as venue (Lyon
France vs Kyoto Japan), variation of programs (e.g., industry related
programs, lab. presentations, ...), publications and digital libraries
(Eurographics vs ACM). 
Consider carefully and don't miss the deadlines and we expect the most
prolific authors to submit one (different) paper to each :-)

* JVRC 2009: Joint Virtual Reality Conference of EGVE - ICAT - EuroVR
  Lyon, France, December 7-9, 2009

This year, the 15th Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments
(EGVE), the 19th International Conference on Artificial Reality and
Telexistence (ICAT), and the 6th EuroVR (INTUITION) Conference are
merged together into the JVRC09. It will be held in Lyon, which is
famous as UNESCO World Heritage site and gourmet city.
The submission deadline of papers and short papers is May 29, 2009,
which might be a little bit earlier than the schedule of other
conferences in average. This is because famous Light Festival will be
held in Lyon during the JVRC 2009. This unique Festival is free and
attracts more than 4 millions visitors worldwide each year. Therefore,
the committee thoughtfully considered to fix the program early enough
so that the participants can arrange their trip schedule before the
capacity becomes full. 
The JVRC 2009 will include papers, short papers, posters, demos, lab.
presentations, as well as industrial presentations and exhibitions from
industrial partners and research projects. The accepted papers will be
published in the proceedings of Eurographics symposium series, and also
appeared in the Eurographics Digital Library. The authors of the best
papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a
journal. JVRC 2009 will be a unique opportunity for both research and
industry to meet and exchange together. 

* VRST 2009: 16th Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology
  November 18-20, 2009, Kyoto, Japan

The the ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology
(VRST) has become one of the premier events in the area of VR, for
example, the full paper acceptance rates were 17% (2008 in Bordeaux,
France) and 21% (2007 in Newport Beach, California). 
This year, the VRST 2009 will be held in Kyoto, Japan. Kyoto is a
world-renowned city for being the ancient capital of Japan with
numerous cultural heritages. Located just two-minute walk distance from
JR Kyoto station, the conference venue is convenient for business trips
and tourism. 
The deadlines of papers and short papers are June 10 and June 17,
respectively. The committee carefully set these due dates in order to
receive your newest research results as much as possible. However, it's
better for you to fix and arrange your trip as soon as possible if you
decide to participate, because mid of November will be the best season
to enjoy beautiful fall colors in Kyoto.
The accepted papers will be published in the VRST symposium proceedings
and also appeared in the ACM Digital Library.
