ConVRgence (VRIC) 2020 will gather specialists in Immersive Technologies, from research institutions & industry leaders, to share their knowledge and produce a vision towards the evolution of immersive technologies and their future usage scenarios within different sectors. For 3 days, the programme will include invited keynotes, papers’ and posters’ presentations, etc.
More than ever, ConVRgence (VRIC) conference at Laval Virtual 2020 is the place to be in order to participate to the tremendous growth of Immersive Technologies.
>> NEW: ConVRgence (VRIC) registration includes unlimited free entrance to Laval Virtual exhibition and to more than 200 other technical and arts-based conferences!
>> REMINDER: ConVRgence (VRIC) registration is free for the presenter of a selected paper! Submit a paper!
To participate to ConVRgence (VRIC) 2020, just register on http://www.laval-virtual.com
To get the opportunity to introduce your work to the audience and get a free full pass, you can submit:
– A Paper that will be directly published on IJVR (International Journal of Virtual Reality ijvr.org) or on ConVRgence 2020 proceedings (according to the reviewers’ assessment, the best papers will be published directly on IJVR, the other papers will be included in ConVRgence 2020 proceedings)
– An extended Abstract that will be published in ConVRgence 2020 proceedings (you don’t have to submit a paper if your abstract is accepted; however, if you wish you could quickly turn your accepted abstract into a full paper).
