Accepted papers, short papers, posters and demonstrations will be published in the printed proceedings of the symposium and will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
The three best papers will be published in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG).
ACM VRST 2008 seeks original, unpublished papers documenting original research contributions, practice and experience, or novel applications, from all areas of virtual, mixed and augmented reality. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
- Interaction techniques for VR
- Augmented and mixed reality
Authors are required to submit anonymous fully formatted papers, with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for final publication. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines.
Authors are also required to submit a PDF version of the paper that contains the paper's online ID number, without any author identification. No hardcopy is needed. Please be careful to keep the PDF version anonymous (in some operating systems, the "properties" of a PDF file may contain the creator's name).
The maximum length for a regular paper submission is 8 pages. The maximum length for a short paper submission is 4 pages. Reviewers will be instructed to weigh the contribution of a paper relative to its length. For example, a useful idea presented completely in four pages is more likely to be accepted than the same idea presented in eight pages. Papers of four or fewer pages will be held to a less-strict standard of citation and description of related work; comparison to the strongest alternative techniques is still important, but an exhaustive review is not necessary.
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 and 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, PDF or HTML for documents, JPEG for images, and QuickTime or MPEG for video).
Additional materials should not exceed a total of 40MB. To the extent possible, accepted papers should stand on their own, with the MPEGs providing supplementary information or confirmation of results. However it is appropriate to refer to the video footages in the paper.
If you have a related paper that is under review elsewhere, please send an anonymous electronic version of this paper with your submission as part of the additional materials.
The reviewers would then be able to access this material with the understanding that it will appear as at least a tech report before the final version of the VRST paper is complete.
Do not send materials other than the pdf file of your paper, video and other electronic materials in your submission. In exceptional circumstances, other materials MAY be considered for review, but only with prior agreement of the Papers Chair.
Online submission here.
We invite the submission of proposals for live demonstrations and technical poster presentations. The submission might describe recently completed work, work in progress, or publicly presentable ideas for unimplemented and/or unusual systems or applications. We will have a fast-forward demo/poster presentation track (in addition to the traditional demo and poster session) during the conference for the authors to orally present a brief summary of their work to all conference attendees.
Accepted demo/poster papers will require that at least one author attends the conference to present the poster/demo in an open session.
Submissions can be up to 2 pages in length. They should be "camera ready" PDF files (only) with full author names and affiliations (reviews are not blind), prepared in the SIGGRAPH format. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines. Accepted posters will be published in the printed proceedings of the symposium and will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
Poster submissions will be made by email to
Poster submission deadline: July 13, 2008 (23:59 PST)
