IEEE AIVR 2022 - Message from general co-chairs
After suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic for more than two years now, we were all hoping to go back to physical events this year.
Unfortunately, the situtation remains difficult and unpredictable, making planning for an on-location event hard if not impossible.
Despite recent improvements and lifting of restrictions, we can be sure that in December there will still be places where travel will be difficult,
which is why we must provide an option to join the conference remotely. Yet, we also know that hybrid conferences are often not satisfying,
neither for the people attending remotely nor the ones on location.
To provide the safest and best possible experience, we therefore decided to host the conference virtually and, if possible, complement it with
physical satellite events. Over the summer, we will analyze the current COVID situation and expectations for the end of the year and then decide on where
to host these satellite events. We hope to have at least one event in the US, one in Europe, and one in Asia. This will provide us with enough
flexibility to react to changing situations and give many people the opportunity to meet physically with at least some of the conference participants.
More information about these satellite events will be posted later, but if you are interested in hosting one or just want to know more about our plans,
feel free to reach out. With this approach we hope to be able to provide
a great conference experience despite all limitations, and we are looking forward to welcoming you at IEEE AIVR 2022, either remotely or on-location.
Wolfgang Hürst, Anita Hu, Phil Sheu, and Mar Gonzalez Franco.
