Note: Due to various requests, the deadline for workshop submissions has been extended to Oct 4, 2020 (AoE).
Immersive analytics (IA) is an interdisciplinary research field that uses VR/AR to create truly immersive and interactive representations of big data for a better analysis and understanding. In this Immersive Analytics workshop (ImAna)
, we want to explore the state of the art in IA, identify problems and major challenges, and look into recent improvements and promising ideas. We are particulary interested in examples that show how AI and VR/AR can be brought together to create and improve IA.
Call for contributions
We are inviting contributions in the form of scientific papers and video demonstrations (see descriptions below) in all domains related to immersive analytics. We are particularly interested in work combining AI and VR/AR, but sole AI or VR/AR work is fine, too, as long as it shows potential for the future integration of both research fields. Concrete topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- IA systems, system design, implementation, toolkits
- IA applications, use cases, case studies, experiences
- Innovative VR/AR usage for IA (ideally with potential for including AI techniques)
- Innovative AI usage for IA (ideally with potential for integration into VR/AR systems)
- IA interaction, authoring and creation of IA systems, collaboration
- Human factors, multimodality, social aspects, evaluations
- Theoretical frameworks, models, position statements, surveys
Because the goal of the workshop is also to identify promising areas for future research and usage of AI, prototypes, work-in-progress, position and research statements, and work that offers only preliminary results but clearly shows potential is welcome as well.
Contributions can be made in one of the following two ways:
Papers illustrate technical or scientific contributions (including position statements) that will be presented at the workshop via a talk or poster presentation.
Authors should submit a PDF of their paper that is formatted according to the IEEE Manuscript Formatting guidelines.
Page limit is 6 pages (including references). Paper submissions can be non-anonymous.
Authors are encouraged to submit accompanying videos with their papers, but this is not required.
Demo/video contributions illustrate innovative ideas, use cases, full as well as prototyped systems that demonstrate all kinds of work related to the topics of interest of this workshop.
They will be presented at the workshop via video recordings and discussions with the authors.
Authors should submit a PDF of an accompanying paper that is formatted according to the IEEE Manuscript Formatting guidelines.
Page limit for the accompanying paper is 2 pages (including references). Demo submissions can be non-anonymous.
Authors are required to upload a first version of the video that will be shown at the workshop to demonstrate their work.
Accepted papers and accompanying demo papers will both be included into the conference proceedings and published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library
. Please follow the IEEE policies for publications
(i.e., you must own copyright to all parts and the manuscript must be original work and not currently under review elsewhere).
Electronic Submission System: Please submit your paper to the ImAna workshop via EasyChair (Select the "Workshop: Immersive Analytics" track for your submission)
