Although the name of IEEE VR 2012 lets assume that this event represents only research on virtual worlds, in the past there have been also a lot of publications addressing Augmented Reality including medical topics. In fact, the committee calls for participation of all researchers targeting many topics that are of interested for the Medical Augmented Reality community such as „3D user interfaces, Tracking and Sensing, User studies and Evaluation, Navigation, Computer graphics techniques, Advanced display technology, Modeling and Simulation or Presence and Cognition„.
It is quite convenient and beneficial to build synergy effects between the communities that IEEE VR 2012 is co-located with IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces and ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics. This will provide a unique platform to meet key people sharing your passion.
In particular for young researchers it should be quite attractive that IEEE VR 2012 publishes all accepted long papers as a special edition of the renowned journal IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.
