Paper Submission »

Online submission is now open.

Before submitting, please be sure to read the general information below pertaining to formatting, length and including additional materials.

Best papers (in both written and oral presentations) in the regular, short and student1 papers will be chosen by a panel of international judges and presented with a cash award.

Best full papers will be selected for a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (CG&A).

Best short papers will be selected for a special issue of IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (CG&A).

1The lead author and the paper presenter must be a student at the time of submission.


Important Dates

  • Full paper submission: 27 May
  • Short paper submission: 19 June
  • Poster/Demo submission: 15 Aug
  • Poster/Demo notification: 25 Aug
  • Paper otification: 31 July
  • Camera-ready version submission: 31 Aug


Authors are required to submit fully formatted papers, with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for final publication. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines. Be sure that all pages are numbered

Authors are also required to submit a PDF version of the paper that contains the paper's online ID number, without any author identification. No hardcopy is needed. Please be careful to keep the PDF version anonymous (in some operating systems, the "properties" of a PDF file may contain the creator's name).

Paper Length

The maximum length for a regular paper submission is 10 pages. The maximum length for a short paper submission is 4 pages. Reviewers will be instructed to weigh the contribution of a paper relative to its length. For example, a useful idea presented completely in four pages is more likely to be accepted than the same idea presented in eight pages. Papers of four or fewer pages will be held to a less-strict standard of citation and description of related work; comparison to the strongest alternative techniques is still important, but an exhaustive review is not necessary.

Additional Materials

Submissions may be optionally accompanied by additional materials such as images, videos, or electronic documents. These materials do not form a part of the official submission and will be viewed only at the discretion of the reviewers. All content should be in a portable format that is unlikely to require the user to download additional programs (for example, PDF or HTML for documents, JPEG for images, and QuickTime or MPEG for video).

Additional materials should not exceed a total of 40MB. To the extent possible, accepted papers should stand on their own, with the MPEGs providing supplementary information or confirmation of results. However it is appropriate to refer to the video footages in the paper.

Related Papers

If you have a related paper that is under review elsewhere, please send an anonymous electronic version of this paper with your submission as part of the additional materials.

The reviewers would then be able to access this material with the understanding that it will appear as at least a tech report before the final version of the VRST paper is complete.

Other Material

Do not send materials other than the pdf file of your paper, video and other electronic materials in your submission. In exceptional circumstances, other materials MAY be considered for review, but only with prior agreement of the Papers Chair.

Post/Demo Submission »

We invite the submission of two-page proposals for technical poster presentations and/or live demonstrations. The submission might describe recently completed work, work in progress, or publicly presentable ideas for unimplemented and/or unusual systems or applications. We will have a fast-forward poster/demo presentation track (in addition to the traditional poster session) during the conference for the authors to orally present a brief summary of their work to all conference attendees.

Note: We will ask authors to explicitly commit to personally attend the workshop to present accepted posters, or to arrange for a suitable replacement presenter.

Questions regarding submissions can be directed to poster/demonstration chairs:

Benjamin Lok (University of Florida at Gainsville, USA) email:

Important Dates
- poster/demo submission: 15 August, 2007 (midnight EST)
- Author notification: 25 August

Posters are limited to 2-pages and should describe innovative and emerging ideas related to Virtual Reality Software and Technology. Accepted poster papers will require that at least one author attends the conference to present the poster in an open poster session. Submissions can be up to 2 pages in length. They should be "camera ready" PDF files (only) with full author names and affiliations (reviews are not blind), prepared in the SIGGRAPH format. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines.

Submissions may optionally include external links to additional materials such as images, videos, or electronic documents. These materials do not form a part of the official submission and will be viewed only at the discretion of the reviewers
