Workshops are an important part of IEEE AIxVR and complement the main program. They offer the opportunity to discuss topics related to AR/VR and AI more focussed, explore new research directions and novel applications, and provide excellent opportunities for networking. They typically feature regular paper presentations, but also other forms of interaction such as invited talks, panels, demos, and hands-on sessions.
Proposing a workshop: If you are interested in organizing a workshop at IEEE AIxVR 2024, please get in touch with general co-chair W. Hürst and provide information about:
Important key dates: Applications will be handled on a case-base, so the sooner you submit, the more time you have to advertise and prepare your workshop. Accepted workshop papers can be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library as part of the conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press if they are thoroughly reviewed by at least two experts. Be aware that the deadline for camera-ready submission of papers is early December. Thus, make sure to plan sufficient time for review and potential revisions. The conference will take place Jan 17-19, 2024.
Get in touch with us: If you have good ideas, questions, comments, etc., please get in touch with us at your earliest convenience. We are happy to discuss ideas with you and assist in the process of planning and setting up a great workshop at IEEE AIxVR 2024.
Special sessions provide organizers with an opportunity to host a session about a dedicated topic related to the conference as part of the technical program. They are integrated into the main program in the same way as regular sessions and typically feature technical paper presentations but can also contain other types of presentations such as invited talks or panels.
Formalities: Special sessions are part of the regular conference program and should thus be similar in size and scope as a regluar paper session at the event. Organizers are expected to recruit submissions, invite speakers, and take other related actions to organize their sessions. Papers and abstracts from invited talks can be included into the conference proceedings (published by IEEE Computer Society) and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library if they are thoroughly reviewed by at least two experts.
Contact and proposal: If you are interested in hosting a special session, have any related questions, or just want to get more information and exchange possible ideas, please get in touch with general co-chair W. Hürst. Proposals will be discussed and decided upon by the conference's co-chairs upon consultation with the program co-chairs based on the following aspects:
Key dates & time planning: Please get in touch with us at your earliest convenience, keeping in mind that to be included into IEEE Xplore, papers need to be thoroughly reviewed and that the deadline for camera-ready paper submission is in early December. Applications will be handled on a case-base, so the sooner you get in touch with us, the more time you have to advertise and prepare your special session.
Venue & organization: IEEE AIxVR 2024 is a physical first event, meaning that it will take place on location in Los Angeles and events will be scheduled according to the PDT time zone. Yet, authors who cannot make it to the event will be provided with the opportunity to join remotely. As a consequence, special sessions should also take place on location. Workshops ideally as well, but options to host an accompanying virtual or hybrid workshop exist. Please get in touch with the organizers to discuss it if you are interested in hosting a hybrid or virtual workshop.
