Workshop in Homage to Professor T. L. Kunii

This  workshop is a full day event with invited contributors, and panel discussions. The event brings together students, faculty, and research scientists who were inspired by Professor Kunii and his great vision. A special Issue in homage to Professor Kunii will be published in the Visual Computer. Invited Authors have to follow the guidelines of the journal. A maximum of 10 pages, double format, is recommended.  

Please if you like to give a contribution.

International Workshop on VR/MR in Medicine

Paper submission: June 1, 2021

Paper notification: June 30, 2021

Camera ready papers due: July 20, 2021

Virtual and Mixed Reality (VR/MR) technologies, in recent years, have found their way into various medical applications. Examples include surgical practices in training, preparation, and operation guidance, student educations, patient consultations, and telepresence. These innovative applications have been realized thanks to the advances in computer graphics, computer vision, artificial intelligence, human computer interaction and display hardware. This workshop aims to bring experts in both technology and medical communities and share complementary knowledge and ideas so that the potential of VR/AR can be further investigated to support and enhance medical applications. This workshop will be a venue to generate interests, enthusiasm and interactions among the communities and act as a catalyst for further collaboration.

The accepted papers from the workshop will be included in the CGI conference proceedings published by LNCS, Springer.

A best CGI’2021 VR/MR Medical Paper Award will be awarded, judged based on both the quality of the research and in the presentation. This awarded paper will be invited to submit a revised paper to the Journal of Visual Computer.

The CGI proceedings papers (8~12 pages full papers, 5~7 pages short papers including figures and references): A template for the full and short paper submission is to be found at Springer, LNCS website. Authors should consult Springer’s author’s guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for Microsoft Word or for LaTex, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, through which the copyright for their paper is transferred to Springer. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Note that for the call for papers, the review process is double blind, which requires the paper and all supplemental materials to be anonymous. Ensure that self-referencing is anonymous (refer to your full name rather than “I” or “we”). Avoid providing information that may identify the authors

in the acknowledgements (e.g. co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g. titles in the movies, or attached papers). Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these guidelines will lead to rejection without review.

Suggested topics, but not limited to, are listed below:

· Computer graphics in VR/MR

· Computer vision in VR/MR

· Human Computer Interaction for VR/MR

· Medical VR/MR applications e.g., in clinical practice, education, etc

· Display and immersive projection technologies (e.g., holograms or head-mounted display)

· Real-time computing algorithms

· VR/AR security and authorization

· 3D Printing and VR/MR

· Other relevant topics
