22nd – 24th November, 2017, Adelaide, Australia
The ICAT-EGVE 2017 conference will be held November 22nd – 24th in Adelaide, Australia. This is the merger of the 27th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2017) and the 22nd Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2017).
Together these are two of the oldest international conferences in the world on Artificial Reality and Virtual Environments, and provide a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and 3D User Interfaces. This is a great opportunity to renew old friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Adelaide has to offer.
Adelaide is one of the most beautiful cities in Australia located by beautiful beaches on one side and expansive mountains and desert on the other. Famous for its festivals, food and wine, Adelaide is an ideal place to experience Australia. Attendees will be able to visit the Barossa Valley for some of the best wine and food in the world, see kangaroos and koala in the local wildlife parks, learn history in the fascinating local museums or hike through breath-taking scenery.
ICAT-EGVE 2017 seeks original, high-quality submissions describing research, applications or systems in all areas of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Telexistence, and 3D User Interfaces.

- User studies and evaluation for VR/AR/MR
- Telexistence, Telepresence and Teleimmersion
- Haptics, audio, and other non-visual modalities
- Serious games and edutainment using VR/AR/MR
- Presence, cognition, and embodiment in VR/AR/MR
- Novel devices (both input and output) for VR, AR, MR, and haptics
- Multi-user and distributed VR, AR, teleimmersion and telepresence
- Immersive projection technologies and other advanced display technologies
- Submissions in other related areas are welcome too
All accepted papers are going to be published in the Eurographics Digital Library. In addition, they will be cited and indexed in the ACM Digital Library.
We will accept submissions in three categories:
- Papers (Full or short)
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. Posters must be in English and not exceed two (2) pages in length. Demonstration submissions consist of a description of the demonstration not exceeding two (2) pages in length, and a video showing the demonstration working.
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 content must be submitted electronically as PDF. Authors are encouraged to submit videos to aid the program committee in the review of their submissions.
All submissions will be reviewed by the paper committee, poster chairs or demonstration chairs. All accepted papers are going to be published in the Digital Library of the Eurographics. In addition, they are going to be cited and indexed in the ACM Digital Library, including the DOI. Accepted posters and demonstrations will be published in the proceedings and in the Eurographics Digital Library.
Note: Submissions should be original, unpublished work, and should not be in submission to other venues concurrently. Any dual submissions will be rejected outright without review.
