Special Issue Call for Papers:


We specifically welcome papers that contain original and mature research to address applications of Virtual Reality (VR) for therapy, and physical and cognitive rehabilitation; championing end user involvement in research, and which contain a rigorous evaluation of their approach. The guest editors encourage the submission of studies on Technologies for Rehabilitation including both physical and cognitive (e.g., Stroke), Healthcare Design and Applications, Visual Impairment, Elderly Studies/Dementia, Movement Disorders, Communication, Social Interaction, and Brain Injury. Research focused on wellness enhancement and treatment for persons with anxiety disorders, PTSD, depression, and addiction are also welcome. Augmented Reality, Affective Computing, Synthetic Agents, Privacy and Ethics, Brain Computer Interfaces, Rehabilitation Robotics, AI and Machine Learning, and Digital Game Making, are expected to be major upcoming themes when used to augment long standing VR approach and may be suitable topics for submitted papers but must be clearly located in the context of VR.

Each paper should include a rigorous evaluation of the approach used.
