AI4XR: Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Extended Reality (VR/AR)

Part of the 13th International Conference on PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments (PETRA 2020)
Date: June 30th – July 3rd, 2020
Location: Corfu Island, Greece

Research in immersive technologies, such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), or in more general terms, Extended Reality (XR), is related to how computing systems allow humans to interact with computer-generated environments in the most natural and realistic way. The sense of presence offered by these systems has encouraged the development of applications in areas such as physical rehabilitation, psychological therapies, education, skill training, arts, or entertainment. On the other hand, research in Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) focuses on the design of models for knowledge discovery from data, which might be very valuable when applied on real-life applications where immersive technologies are being used. The objective of the workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Extended Reality is to serve as a stage for new research perspectives that blend immersive technologies and state-of-the-art ML from both academic and industrial parties; and to highlight and demonstrate the potential that this combination can bring for, e.g., user-behavior modelling, visualization mechanisms, novel human-computer-interaction (HCI) paradigms, multimodal interfaces, and user experience in 3D spaces. Ultimately, we expect the workshop to shed light on new research pathways on how ML can be used to let computers enhance the overall experience in immersive technologies.

List of Topics
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Machine learning for VR/AR
• VR/AR for machine learning
• Serious games and simulation
• Physiological signal processing for VR
• VR applications, including healthcare, learning, training, and arts
• HCI using augmented, virtual and mixed reality
• Multimodal interaction in immersive experiences
• Wearables as input interfaces for VR
• Natural language processing and speech interaction with virtual characters
• UX in immersive environments
• Understanding and modelling of user behavior in virtual environments
• Physical or psychological rehabilitation with immersive systems
• Data visualization in VR
• Data generation, manipulation and analysis in VR systems
• VR platforms and prototypes
• Ethical aspects of AI and immersive technologies
