The organizing committee invites proposals for small informal workshops
on narrowly focused topics in VR, which could be held during the
tutorials weekend before the main conference.  Workshop proposals
should include address, phone, fax, email information for the
organizers, and a description of the themes, goals, and planned
activities of the workshop.  Note that the organizing committee will
charge an additional registration fee to the attendees of any workshop
sufficient to recover its costs.


The organizing committee cordially invites you to submit your
experimental results, software and hardware demonstra- tions, and
computer animations and graphics in videotape for- mat.  The videos are
intended to enhance and complement the topics in the technical paper
section however, each video should stand on its own.  Videos will be
peer reviewed.  Accepted videos will be published on a one hour, half
inch VHS format proceedings tape and shown in a video poster session at
the conference site.

Suggestions for video production:

        Use sound constructively.  Music and background
        noise generally detract from the presentation.  Videos
        without descriptive narration cannot be used.

        Flow charts, block diagrams, circuit boards,
        computers, or operators should not be included.

        Keep the subject technical, not promotional.

        Illustrate systems, results, or user interaction not
        easily conveyed in a written paper.

        Be concise; convey one major result clearly.

        Make videos 'stand alone' and self contained.

Technical videos:  Please submit one high-quality copy of a 2 to 3
minute video segment in half inch VHS or 3/4 inch Umatic format, and a
one page information sheet containing TITLE, AUTHORS, AFFILIATIONS,
ADDRESS, and 200 WORD ABSTRACT with references and acknowledgements.
In a cover letter, please include topic area, correspondence address,
phone and FAX numbers and email address if avail- able.  Label tapes
with title and authors.

The program committee invites you to submit proposals for panel
sessions to be held during the conference.  The proposal should include
a title for the panel session and a brief description of the overall
issues to be discussed, together with an abstract of each panelist's
presentation, and the address, phone, fax, email information.


The organizing committee cordially invites experts in the field to
submit proposals for tutorials dealing with virtual reality
technology.  The tutorials will be half-day or a full-day in length.
Topics to be considered include:

        Psychophysical Factors

The two page proposal should include the author, affiliation, and
qualifications (e.g. a brief biographical summary), the length of time
needed to cover the material, a detailed section on the subject to be
taught, all audio/video requirements, and email address.

The conference will allocate space to vendors, companies
and publishers to display and demonstrate their latest
innovations in Virtual Reality technology.  Potential
exhibitors are encouraged to contact the Exhibits Chair for

Due date of submissions of all types of
materials is August 15, 1994.
All submissions are to be mailed to:

In 1993, the IEEE Neural Networks Council sponsored VRAIS '93, held in
Seattle, Washington in September.  The IEEE Computer Society Technical
Committee on Computer Graphics sponsored the "Symposium on Research
Frontiers in VR" workshop in conjunction with Visualization '93, in San
Jose, California in October.  These two meetings made up a watershed
event:  They were the first IEEE-sponsored, solidly tech- nical,
refereed meetings focused on the rapidly-developing field known as
Virtual Reality or Virtual Environments.

These two IEEE organizations have now joined forces, to co-sponsor the
next VRAIS conference, to be held in Research Triangle Park, North
Carolina, at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center, from
March 11-15, 1995.  The sponsors are united in their goal to make VRAIS
the premier technical conference on Virtual Reality, bringing together
workers in the many diverse technical discplines contributing to this
field, and providing a forum for the interchange of timely/quality
theories, experimental results, and technological developments.

In addition to VRAIS '95, technical paper presentations and published
proceedings, the organizing committee plans a video proceedings and a
two day tutorial session preceding the main conference.  The program
committee also invites you to submit proposals for panel sessions, to
be held during the main conference, and small, infor- mal workshops,
which could be held during the tutorials weekend.  Guidelines for
submitting each of these types of technical contributions are contained
in this brochure.
