AIVR 2020)

3rd International Conference on

Artificial Intelligence & Virtual Reality

December 14-18, 2020 (virtual/online event)
History Important dates


At past conferences, we always had very strong and interesting demo sessions. Despite IEEE AIVR 2020 being a virtual event, we want to provide a similar experience for this year's attendants. Therefore, we ask for submissions of videos accompanied by a two-page short paper, which will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE Computer Society Press and included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. We are still exploring different platforms for how to make the demo sessions interactive and play your videos at the conference. Details about this will be announced later.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit extended abstracts of systems and working prototypes plus a video of their research demo, industry demo, or concept demo. Submissions should demonstrate how the technology of AI and VR/AR could be used to generate experiences that allow humans to see, hear, talk, think, learn, connect, collaborate, and/or solve problems in virtual and augmented environments.

The purpose of the demonstrations/video submissions is to give IEEE AIVR's virtual attendees a real, practical, and interactive idea of the presenters' research ideas, scientific contributions, or engineering solutions in an interactive setting. All kinds of video-based demonstrations of working systems, prototypes, video visions, or proof-of-concepts that show new solutions, interesting ideas, or new applications of AI and VR/AR systems and applications are welcome.

We strongly encourage submissions that demonstrate both AI and VR/AR simultaneously, but also welcome works that focus more on one side or the other. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Artificial Intelligence and machine learning in VR/AR
  • Communication between humans and AI
  • Multimodal interfaces in VR/AR
  • Multimodal AI Interaction and Experiences in VR/AR
  • Design of emotionally intelligent AI agents in VR/AR
  • AI Based Customization, recommender systems and personalisation in VR/AR
  • Information visualisation in VR/AR space
  • Haptic feedback for VR/AR
  • Digital VR/AR game technology
  • Gaming and game narratives, immersive AI storytelling and gameplay
  • Affective human-virtual world interaction
  • Affective ambient intelligence in mixed realities
  • AI based emotion mediated communication in VR/AR
  • Physiological and behavioral sensing in VR/AR
  • Tools for authoring emotional intelligence in VR/AR
  • Human-human emotional communication in VR/AR
  • AI platforms for VR/AR, cloud-based platforms
  • AI/VR/AR visions
  • Other Emerging Trends (Learning, Health, Collaboration, Manufacturing, etc.)

We highly encourage authors of regular paper submissions to also submit associated demos. For this, please submit the extended abstract and indicate the submission ID of the corresponding regular paper.



Authors and presenters of demonstrations and industry demonstrations must submit:

  • An extended abstract (in conference paper format) summarizing their demonstration. The abstracts of accepted demonstrations will be citable and published in the conference proceedings. Page limit is two pages including references. Please refer to the Call for Papers on the website for templates. Submissions SHOULD NOT be blind. Upload your abstract as PDF via EasyChair (see link below).
  • A video submission that highlights the demo contribution. The video should be HD, succinct, and clearly illustrates the technical research merits. Further, it is mandatory to have the rights to any copyrighted material (including visual or audio). The total length should not exceed 5 minutes maximum and have to be provided in .mp4 or .mkv format. The video should be similar to the one that will be shown at the conference, but it is possible to make final changes before the camera-ready deadline (Oct 30). To submit your video, add a link to a downloadable version (e.g., Dropbox, website, other cloud providers) in a text file (ending .txt) that should also be uploaded via EasyChair (see link below).

Demo submissions will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the topic of the conference.
  • What is the scientific or engineering concept behind the work?
  • What is the novel or innovative aspect?
  • What makes it interesting for showing to AIVR attendants?

It is recommended that the submitted files reflect the answers to these questions. Notice that these criteria are not exclusive. We aim at having a manifold and interesting demo session addressing all kinds of aspects with regards to AI, VR, and AR. Thus, work that lacks novelty, but demonstrates important aspects about these domains is also welcome, as are initial implementations of preliminary but innovative, new ideas.

Paper Submission System: Please submit your demo to AIVR via EasyChair (Select "Video paper track" for your submission)
