ACM VRST 2020 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

https://vrst.acm.org/vrst2020/

The ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST) is an international forum for the exchange of experience and knowledge among researchers and developers concerned with VR/AR software and technology.

The VRST symposium brings together the main international research groups working on AR/VR/MR, along with many of the world’s leading companies that provide or utilize AR/VR systems. The VRST 2020 conference will be held in Ottawa, Canada, hosted by Carleton University, from November 1 to November 4, 2020. The event is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI and SIGGRAPH.

For the first time, VRST will be colocated with the ACM CHI Play 2020 Symposium, to help foster collaborations between researchers in the increasingly related VR and games/HCI communities.

Call for Exhibitors and Sponsors:

VRST 2020 offers exhibitors and sponsors an opportunity to showcase their company’s products, attractive demos and innovative solutions at the symposium. Please refer to the conference web-page for information about signing up to become an exhibitor or sponsor at VRST 2020.

Submission Information:

Please use the ACM SIGCHI Conferences Submission System to submit your work: http://precisionconference.com/~sigchi (link will open shortly)

Publication of the papers:

All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in the VRST collection.

Paper Format:

Paper submissions should be anonymous and prepared in the “ACM Standard” format. Word and LaTeX templates for the ACM Standard format can be found in the official ACM Master article template packages: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow

Maximum length:

Full research paper submission: 9 pages + references

Short paper submission: 4 pages + references

Poster submission: 2 pages including references

2-column “teaser” figures on the front page are encouraged, but not required for all submissions.

Anonymity Guidelines:

Please remove author and institution information from the author list on the title page, remove author information from all paper headers, and remove from the text any clues that would directly identify any of the authors. Please anonymize your PDF file. Note that PDF creator programs may automatically include author information in the file metadata.

Citations of your own published work (including online) must be in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the identity of the authors. For example, the wording “in [3], Mountain and River have proposed…” is acceptable, whereas “in [3], we have proposed…” is not. (Where reference [3] is listed explicitly as “Mountain, A. and River, A., Detecting Mountains and Rivers, In Proc. XYZ ’16, 721-741.”)

Failure to comply with the above requirements will result in an automatic rejection of the paper.

Supplementary Materials:

Submissions may be (optionally) accompanied by additional materials such as images, videos, or electronic documents. These materials do not form a part of the official submission. They will be viewed only at the discretion of the reviewers. All content should be in a portable format that is unlikely to require the user to download additional programs. For example, you may prefer PDF or HTML for documents, PNG or JPEG for images, and QuickTime or MPEG for videos. The total file size for supplementary materials should not exceed a total of 50MB.

To the extent possible, accepted papers should stand on their own, with the additional material providing supplementary information or confirmation of results. It is, however, appropriate to refer to video footage in the paper.

Attendance:

Paper acceptance is always conditional on at least one author registering for the conference and presenting their work in person.
