Call for Papers

ICAT-EGVE 2014 will be 24th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2014) and the 19th Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2014) in Bremen, Germany.
This international event will be a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge with virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user interfaces. And, of course, it is a good time to renew friendships, make new ones, and experience the Christmas fair downtown.
ICAT-EGVE 2014 seeks original, high-quality research papers in all areas of virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user interfaces. Research papers should describe results that contribute to advancements in the following areas:
  • 3D interaction for VR/AR
  • VR/AR systems and toolkits
  • Immersive projection technologies and other advanced display technologies
  • Presence, cognition, and embodiment in VR/AR/MR
  • Haptics, audio, and other non-visual modalities
  • User studies and evaluation
  • Multi-user and distributed VR, tele-immersion and tele-presence
  • Serious games and edutainment using VR/AR/MR
  • Novel devices (both input and output) for VR, AR, MR, and haptics
  • Applications of VR/AR/MR Papers in other related areas are welcome, too, of course.

All accepted papers will be published in the Digital Library of the Eurographics. In addition, they will be cited and indexed in the ACM Digital Library, including the DOI.


Full papers must be in English and not exceed eight (8) pages in length. Short papers must be in English and not exceed four (4) pages in length. Both full and short papers should be formatted using the Eurographics format.
ICAT-EGVE uses a double-blind review process. Therefore, submissions should not contain information (including citations and optional videos) that unnecessarily identifies the authors or their institutions or places of work. All papers must be submitted electronically as PDF. Authors are encouraged to submit videos to aid the program committee in the review of their submissions.
