IEEE AIVR is all about bringing people together who have an interest in AI, VR/AR, or both and creating new communities related to these exciting research domains. To foster this, we are organizing two special sessions targeted towards people doing research in either of these fields that can potentially be of relevance for people from other communities.
Papers describing AI-related research that is of potential benefit for people from the VR/AR community are encouraged to submit their work to the special session "AI for VR/AR". The research does not has to address VR/AR aspects already, as long as it can trigger interests for people from these communities. Likewise, we invite people who are focusing mostly on VR/AR technologies and applications to submit their work to the special session "VR/AR for AI". Research suitable for this session ranges from technical innovations, to user studies including perception and experiences, to new usages of VR/AR.
Our aim is to enfoster discussion between AI and VR/AR researchers. Hence, any kind of research is welcome that is of potential benefit for the other community. For example, if you are working on AI technologies that could potentially be useful for VR/AR systems, the special session "AI for VR" provides a forum to present your work to the VR/AR community. Likewise, you can use these special sessions to gain feedback from the other communities for your research. For example, if you are eager to get input of how AI could be used to improve your VR/AR system, you can use the special session "VR for AI" to present your work to the AI community to gain feedback from them and maybe even establish future research collaborations.
Special session papers should be 4-8 pages long (excluding references) and will be reviewed based on their contribution and potential relevance for the communities involved in IEEE AIVR. Submissions should be double-blind (i.e., remove all author information) and will be thoroughly reviewed by at least two members from the international program committee. If accepted, one author must register at the full conference rate and present the work at the conference. All accepted special session papers will be archived in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
At IEEE AIVR, we are also eager to look into the future, forster innovation, and encourage out of the box thinking. The late-breaking-results track gives people an opportunity to present their latest results related to all conference topics (see general CfP for the full list of areas of interest). Preliminary results and initial ideas are welcome as well, because we believe that true innovation comes from discussion and collaboration and thus want to encourage people to also present their early ideas to the community.
Late-breaking-results papers should be 2-4 pages long and will be reviewed thoroughly and double-blindly (i.e., remove all author information when submitting) by at least two members from the international program committee with respect to their potential and contribution. If accepted, one author must register at the full conference rate and present the work at the conference. All accepted late-breaking-results papers will be archived in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
Authors should submit their manuscripts in double-column IEEE format following the official IEEE Manuscript Formatting guidelines and considering the page limits and anonymization requirements indicated below. Also consider 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). The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Submissions will undergo a thorough peer review by members for the international program committee. Contributions of distinguished quality will be selected for best paper awards and invited for publication in internationally renowned journals. Authors should upload their papers in pdf format (ending .pdf). Uploading an accompanying video is possible (accepted formats: mov, mp4, mpg, wmv, or zip to bundle multiple shorter video clips).
