VECIMS 2012 is an interdisciplinary symposium that intends to bring a methodical instrumentation and measurement perspective to the theory and practice of virtual and virtualized environments, and human-computer interfaces by focusing on the quantitative and metrological aspect of these technologies and their interactive applications in telerobotics, telemedicine, remote control, engineering design, environment sensing and monitoring, training, education, arts, and computer games.
Papers are solicited on all aspects of virtual environments and human-computer interaction technologies for measurement systems and the related applications, from the points of view of both theory and practice. This includes but is not limited to multimodal (visual, haptic, audio, etc) virtual environments, sensors and displays, perception and psychophysics, object modeling, model validation, multi-sensor data fusion, soft computing techniques, human-computer interaction, augmented and virtualized reality, virtual reality languages, APIs, RTIs, collaborative distributed virtual environments, model-based telecommunications and telecontrol, calibration, standards, implementation technologies, and applications.
Joint VECIMS 2012 and CIMSA 2012 Special sessions (when submitting a paper, you may indicate the special session preferred):
• Multimodal virtual environments, simulation and measurement in medical physics
• Food testing and security
Additionally, there will be a joint VECIMS 2012 and CIMSA 2012 best student paper award.
