Call For Papers

VARE 2020 - Call for paper and Journal Opportunities!
The 6thInternational Conference on Virtual and Augmented Reality in Education (VARE 2020)

Dates and Location
September 16-18, 2020
Venue: Athens, GREECE

New Author’s Instruction for all the I3M attendees (including EMSS, HMS, MAS, IMACCA, IWISH, SESDE, FOODOPS, VARE)
The I3M Organization Committee has approved a new procedure for papers submission. As tradition, I3M provides its attendees with the opportunity to publish extended version of selected papers to International Journals.
To this end, the Organization Committee is looking forward to speed the journal publication process. Therefore, the following changes have been approved:
1. It is strongly recommended (not mandatory) that camera-ready papers for the conference do not exceed 6 pages length (minimum mandatory length: 4 pages).
2. Authors are strongly encouraged to prepare directly an extended version of the article (e.g. 8-10 pages), to use a short version of the article as camera ready paper for the conference (see point 1) and the full length paper for the journal (the full length paper for the journal must be at least 50% different from the short version used for the conference).
3. At the time of the Notification of Acceptance of the conference paper, the authors will be informed if their papers have been selected for journal publication. Additional information regarding the journal submission process will be provided by email.
4. Information about the deadlines for journal submission are reported in the “Deadline Section” of each conference website.

Key Dates
Abstracts or full draft papers, April 15th 2020
Acceptance Notification, May 15th 2020
Camera Ready Papers, June 15th 2020

Journal Opportunities
Best papers of VARE 2020 will be invited to submit an extended version to Special Issues of the following International Journals:
• International Journal of Simulation and Process Modelling
• International Journal of Food Engineering
• International Journal of Privacy and Health Information Management

Scopus index the VARE proceedings; in addition the I3M proceedings will be submitted for indexing in ISI Conference proceedings Citation Index and Google Scholar.

Access for free the I3M proceedings of previous editions
Conferences Proceedings are available at this link

PhD Colloquium
Phd students are invited to submit a paper to the conference and presents the result of the paper during the Phd sessions.

"Gianni Cantice Research Award for Gifted Simulation Students" and the “Norbert Giambiasi Award for Conceptual Modeling Excellence” will be announced during the I3M 2020 Gala Dinner and attributed to the best simulation student applicants. The Gianni Cantice Award is entitled to Col.Cantice as recognition for his long activity in Simulation; the Gianni Cantice Award Winner will receive the Award Certificate and a financial contribution (a free registration for the next I3M conference).
The Norbert Giambiasi Award is entitled to Prof. Norbert Giambiasi as recognition for very highly qualified contribution in Conceptual Modeling and DEVS within International Simulation Community. The Norbert Giambiasi Award Certificate Board selects the paper among best Conceptual Modeling contributions to I3M Conference. If you have a student as co-author in your SESDE paper the student could be considered for the award.

Conference Aim
The VARE is a biannual event that brings together trainers in all areas of knowledge and educational levels as well as researchers and scientists from virtual technologies as well data advanced visualization and virtualization. In general, main aim is to improve teaching and training, and data analysis through virtual and augmented technologies use and to discuss problems and solutions in mentioned areas to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research.

Conference Topics
Virtual (VR), augmented (AR) and mixed (MR) reality environments development and applications, 3D objects recognition and processing (geometric modeling, methods for modeling and rendering complex geometry, structure and behaviors), Advanced visualization and immersive projection technologies, Collaborative and multi-participant VR/AR/MR environments, Computer graphics and objects techniques (data and objects visualization and animation, Data visual analytics and semantics visualization, Human-computer interaction (haptics, audio, and other visual and non-visual interfaces), Immersive gaming and VR/AR/MR related edutainment, Mobile VR/AR/MR solutions, Multi-user and distributed VR/AR/MR systems, Presence and VR/AR/MR related cognition technologies, Technological, psychological and artistic issues of integrating VR/AR/MR objects with real-world objects and environments, Tracking, sensing and navigation VR/AR/MR objects, VR/AR/MR applications in e-learning systems, VR/AR/MR related modeling and simulation, Holography systems development and use, VR/AR/MR systems hardware and software, Virtual reality and Art, Engineering Art, Holographic visualization
