M. Gopi is the Conference Co-chair of I3D and Aditi Majumder is the General Co-chair of VR
IEEE VR 2012 is the premier international conference and exhibition on virtual reality.
You will find the brightest minds, the most innovative research, the leading companies and the most stimulation discussions in the fields of virtual environments, augmented reality, 3D user interfaces, all gathered in Orange County, California during March 4-8 (Sun-Thu), 2012. We invite you to submit your work, show your products and join us for a fascinating week of presentations, exhibits, workshops, tutorials and special events.
Once again, IEEE VR 2012 is pleased to be co-located with IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces (March 4-5). In addition, this time we are co-locating ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics, 2012 with IEEE VR. ACM I3D will happen just following IEEE VR on March 9-11, 2012 at the same venue. We hope that the co-location of these two conferences with large overlapping domains and interest will bring forth new ways to support cross-fertilization of ideas.
IEEE VR, hosted by University of California, Irvine, will be held at the Westin South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa in Orange County, CA. Orange County belongs to the greater Los Angeles (LA) area which is one of the biggest academic and IT centers of USA. UC-Irvine, UC-Los Angeles, University of Southern California, and Cal-State Fullerton are the main academic centers of the area. Los Angeles, Irvine, Westminister and other such towns of the area are the home of thousands of IT companies including gaming (e.g. Blizzard), entertainment (e.g. Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar, Institute for Creative Technologies), and devices (e.g. BenQ, Canon). With the co-location of IEEE 3DUI and ACM I3D, we will provide ample opportunities for cross-fertilization of ideas and technology across different synergistic communities centered around virtual reality.
