​ 3DUI 2017, IEEE 12th Symposium on 3D User Interfaces

18th & 19th March

Los Angeles, California, USA

IEEE 3DUI 2017 Symposium is the year of the 3D user interfaces. Since IEEE
3DUI 2016, there has been an explosion of new technology that requires 3D
user interface solutions. There are therefore many open 3D user interface
research questions and more new technologies required.  The IEEE 3DUI 2017
Symposium is the conference to showcase your results to the community. For
that purpose, IEEE 3DUI 2017 solicits high-quality Papers and Technotes
within the scope of 3D User Interfaces.

Papers (up to 10 pages) should describe original and mature research
results and will typically include some evidence of the value of the
research, such as a user evaluation, formal proof, or well-substantiated
argument. Technotes (up to 4 pages) should contain unpublished preliminary
results of research, application, design or system work. Technotes do not
have the hard requirement of an evaluation. The presentation of novel
research is a key requirement, and this includes (be is not limited to)
technology, techniques, and systems.

Each Paper or Technote should be classifiable as mainly covering 3D UI
Research, Application & Design, or Systems using the following guidelines
for each:

   - *Research* papers should describe results that contribute to advances
   in state-of-the-art 3D UI, in particular, in the areas of interaction,
   novel input devices, human-factors, or algorithms.
   - *Application & Design* papers should explain how the authors built
   novel and/or creative 3D UIs to solve interesting problems. Each Paper
   should include an evaluation of the use of the 3D UIs in the given
   application domain.
   - *Systems* papers should show results that contribute to advances in
   state-of-the-art 3D UI technology, software or hardware. Papers should
   describe how the implementers integrated known techniques and technologies
   to produce an effective 3D UI system, along with any lessons learned in the
   process, and include an evaluation of the system such as benchmarking of
   latency, frame-rate, jitter, accuracy, etc. Simply describing a system
   without providing appropriate measures does not constitute a satisfactory
   Systems Paper.

Topics of the symposium include (but are not limited to):

   - 3D input devices
   - 3D display and sensory feedback (all five senses)
   - 3D interaction techniques
   - 3D user interface metaphors
   - Mobile 3DUIs
   - Hybrid 3DUIs
   - Non-fatiguing 3DUIs
   - Desktop 3DUIs
   - 3DUIs for VR and AR
   - Evaluation methods for 3DUIs
   - Human perception of 3D interaction
   - Collaborative 3D interaction
   - Software technologies to support 3DUIs
   - Empirical studies of 3DUIs
   - Sensor technologies for 3DUIs
   - Applications of 3DUIs: Games, entertainment, CAD, education, etc.

*Papers and Technotes Submission Dates *

   - Abstract submissions due (required) - November 22, 2016 (midnight PST)
   - Paper/Technote Submissions due – November 28, 2016 (midnight PST)
   - Author notification - January 1, 2017 (midnight PST)
   - Camera-ready Papers/Technotes- January 13, 2017 (midnight PST)

*Submission Guidelines*

Note that an abstract must be uploaded prior to the Paper or Technote. This
facilitates assigning reviewers, as the review process is on a tight
schedule. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit videos of their work as
part of their submissions.

Papers and Technotes should be prepared in IEEE VGTC format
<http://junctionpublishing.org/vgtc/Track/3DUI.html> submitted through the
submission web site in PDF format, and will be reviewed by the program
committee and external reviewers. Reviewing is double-blind, so submissions
(including any videos, etc.) should be suitably anonymized. Accepted Papers
and Technotes will be published by IEEE in the official Symposium
proceedings. An International award committee will also award the Best
Paper and Technote.

The authors of best Papers from 3DUI 2017 will be invited to submit
extended versions of their work to the International Journal of
Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS) and IEEE Transactions on Visualization and
Graphics (IEEE TVCG).

Please note that we welcome extended versions of appropriate work that has
been accepted as a Poster at IEEE VR 2017 to be submitted as Papers to 3DUI
2017. However, other combinations (e.g., VR Poster + 3DUI Technote, VR
Short Paper + 3DUI Paper, etc.) are not allowed, and will be rejected
without review. Please be mindful of the Double-Submissions Policy.
