Call for Demonstrations

ICAT-EGVE 2016 will be 26th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2016) and the 21th Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2016) in Little Rock, Arkansas. ICAT/EGVE 2016 will provide a track for live demos of interesting, innovative, and new results in the areas of virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, and 3D user interface and interaction paradigms. We invite all colleagues and researchers to demonstrate their results live during the conference.

The demos have to be accompanied by a 2-page demo description. The description will be peer reviewed. Authors of accepted demos will have their demo descriptions published in the proceedings and published and indexed by the EUROGRAPHIS digital library. The description has to follow standard scientific qualities as well as the format as expected for regular submissions (see below).

VR PLAZA: because the event will be held at the Clinton Presidential Library, the exhibits and demos will be set up as a special event and will be open to the public. We will annouce them to the community and we expect to see significant interest from the public and business communitites. This is a great opportunity to really show your work!
