CHCI Participation in IEEE VR Conference

CHCI Participation in IEEE VR Conference

A large group of CHCI faculty and students will be presenting and participating in the IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces, March 22-26, 2020. Originally scheduled to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, the conference will be conducted completely online for all presentations, due to precautions related to coronavirus. As the leading annual conference in the field, IEEE VR brings together the latest research and technology from leaders around the world. CHCI members have accepted papers, posters, workshop papers, tutorials, contest entries, and Doctoral Consortium papers. In addition, CHCI member and ISE Professor Joseph Gabbard is serving as Co-Chair of the Journal Paper Track and the co-chair of PERCAR: the 6th Annual Workshop on Perceptual and Cognitive Issues in AR. More than 25 CHCI faculty, students, and alumni will be in attendance, from departments including computer science, visual arts, industrial & systems engineering, and advanced research computing. Contributions are listed below, with CHCI members listed in bold.
