Aims and Scope

We invite you to participate in the Eighth Eurographics Workshop on Virtual
Environments. This workshop is a well-known international forum for the
exchange of experience and knowledge among researchers and developers
concerned with virtual environments and virtual reality.
Papers and case studies will form the scientific content of the event.
Papers are invited that present research results from all areas of
virtual environments. Case studies report on practical applications of
virtual environments.

This year a special focus is set on interaction with virtual environments.
Authors with outstanding contributions to this focus will be asked to
publish an extended version of their paper in a planned special issue
of Computers & Graphics on Interaction with Virtual Environments.


Suggested topics for research papers include, but are not limited to :

    Innovative 3D input devices
    Augmented/mixed reality
    Multimodal interaction
    VR systems development
    Collaborative VR
    VE evaluation
    Virtual reality for scientific visualization
