ACM VRST 2017: Call for Papers, Posters, and Demos


8. - 10. November.

Time: 09:00 - 17:00


The 23rd ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST 2017) is an

international forum for the exchange of experience and knowledge among researchers,

developers, and industry concerned with virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) software and

technology. VRST provides an opportunity for VR/AR researchers to interact, share new

results, show live demonstrations of their work, and discuss emerging directions for the field.

The event is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI and ACM SIGGRAPH.


ACM VRST 2017 will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden, November 08-10.


We invite original, high-quality research papers in all areas of virtual reality, augmented

reality, mixed reality, as well as 3D interaction. 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


Submissions in related areas are welcome too. See the symposium website, , for more details.


Submission Categories: Full and Short Papers, Posters, and Demos

We invite submissions of Full Papers (up to 10 pages) and Short Papers (up to 4 pages). All

submissions must be in English. All accepted papers will be published in the Symposium

Proceedings and will be included in the ACM Digital Library (EI-indexed). Authors of the best

papers will be invited to submit the extended version of their papers for possible publication

in Computer Graphics Forum (CGF). VRST 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 files. Authors are encouraged to submit videos to aid the

program committee in the review of their submissions.


We also invite submissions of Poster and Demo papers (2 pages). We particularly encourage

industrial researchers, startups, and researchers early in their career to submit. Accepted

Poster and Demo papers will be published in the Symposium Proceedings and will be

included in the ACM Digital Library.


Papers, posters, and demos must be submitted through the online submission site:
