Call for Participation
First Workshop on Seated Virtual Reality
Atlanta, GA, USA - 22 March 2020

*** Important Dates ***
Submission Deadline: 27 January 2020
Notification: 31 January 2020
Camera-Ready: 12 February 2020

Workshop: 22 March 2020

Accessing VR/AR while the user is being seated is not uncommon. However, 
sitting often is not recognized as a unique characteristic and instead 
is somehow addressed in the background, or it is perceived as just 
given, because it often also is not a design decision to make, and thus 
does not generate attention. Furthermore, whenever being seated really 
is a choosable option, it might look only limiting at first glance, but 
reveals various opportunities at a second. In the end, the reason for 
being seated are diverse and could be. However, the impact and questions 
on the UI design as well as the user's perception often are the same. 
Therefore, we think it is worth to combine research around this scenario 
and bringing interested researchers together, to identify and discuss 
research and lack of such in this field.

In this interactive workshop we want to tackle this agenda in lively 
group work and discussions, framed by short lightning talks of the 
accepted 1-2 pages abstracts.

*** Location ***
Atlanta, GA, USA (co-located with IEEE Virtual Reality 2020)
Date March 22 2020 (morning)

*** Main topics ***
Welcome are all topics, which directly investigate, which impact sitting 
in VR/AR has, or work where the user is being seated and this fact 
has/had a significant impact on the interface design, including:

  * Seated VR/AR
  * Working environments
  * Locomotion
  * 3DUI design
  * Perception, Immersion, Presence
  * Cybersickness
  * Gaming, Entertainment
  * Devices
  * Lazy UIs

*** Submission Information ***
We call for 1-2 page abstracts. A committee of expert reviewers will 
review all submissions. At least one author per abstract must register 
for the workshop as well as one day of the IEEE VR conference. Authors 
of accepted papers will be expected to give a lightning talk at the 
workshop. Submissions must be prepared in IEEE Computer Society VGTC 
submitted in PDF via EasyChair 

*Selected submissions will get the opportunity to be extended in a 
special issue of the MDPI Computers journal.***

*Note: We will consider papers that are rejected at VR for inclusion in 
the workshop. Please make sure to adapt it to our workshop page length 
(max 2 pages) and incorporate the feedback received by the reviewers.*
