************************************************************************

We are pleased to announce the 15th annual *EuroVR* conference *in London
on 22 – 23 October, 2018*, following Bremen (2014); Lecco (2015); Athens
(2016); and Laval (2017). This conference series began as part of the
INTUITION Network of Excellence in Virtual and Augmented Reality supported
by the European Commission from 2004 to 2008 and continued as the Joint
Virtual Reality Conferences (JVRC) of EuroVR, EGVE and ICAT from 2009 to
2013. This 2018 conference is being organised by UK members of the European
Association for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (EuroVR), namely,
University of Nottingham, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and
High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC), Glasgow School of Arts, Imperial
College London and ImmerseUK.

*EuroVR 2018* bring together people from industry, commerce, and research
including technology developers, suppliers and all those interested in
virtual reality, augmented or mixed reality (VR, AR, MR) and 3D user
interfaces, to exchange knowledge and share experiences of new results and
applications, enjoy live demonstrations of current and emerging
technologies, and form collaborations for future work.

*TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS*

   - Scientific/Technical Track (14-20 page long papers or 8-10 page short
   papers, both in one column Springer format): original, unpublished papers
   documenting new research contributions, practice and experience, or novel
   applications in VR/AR/MR.
   - Industrial Track (1 page abstract): best practices, industrial use
   cases of VR/AR/MR, project results and demonstrations of VR/AR/MR
   applications in industry, and/or actual or potential transfers of academic
   results.
   - Poster Track (2 page abstract): recently completed work, work in
   progress, or publicly presentable ideas for unimplemented and/or unusual
   systems or applications.
   - Demonstration Track (2 pages abstract): live demonstrations of past
   and on-going projects. Technology developers and suppliers, exhibitors,
   digital artists and members of the VR/AR/MR industrial communities are all
   invited to exhibit and demonstrate the latest technologies and applications.

Authors of accepted scientific/technical papers and industrial track
submissions will be expected to attend the conference and make a 15-25
minute oral presentation. The authors of accepted posters and
demonstrations will have to make a brief oral presentation on their work in
addition to the poster or demo presentations.
