IEEE International Workshop of Emerging Topics in XR (ETXR 2018)

In conjunction with the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality (AIVR 2018)

Dec 10 – Dec. 12, 2018, Taichung, Taiwan

AR/VR/XR provides users to link the perception from a real world to a virtual world with 3D contents. Computer vision, computer graphics, and interactive technologies in human computer interface supply ways to visualize and display 3D models, animations, and visual indicators for storytelling from designers and artists. This workshop offers a meeting place for researchers/designers/artists working in the convergence area of AR/VR/XR to share the research and prototyping experiences for creative ideas. At the workshop papers for “emerging topics in XR” present fast forward talks and live demonstrations, including displays, virtual and augmented reality, input devices, and robotics. Some of the accepted works will be chosen as “Best Demo Prize” by the “emerging topics in XR” program committee members at the event venue. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Human-Computer-Interaction in VR/AR/XR
  • Wearable Applications with AR/VR/XR
  • Performing Art with XR
  • Interactive Robot with XR
  • UX with AI agents in AR/VR/XR
  • Experimental Theater Performing with AR/VR/XR
  • Behavior Recognition in AR/VR/XR



Prof. Shih-Wei Sun, Taipei National University of the Arts, Taiwan


Prof. Huang-Chia Shih, Yuan Ze University, Taiwan


Prof. Nobuyuki Umezu, Ibaraki University, Japan



In this workshop, each of the accepted speakers need to use 3 minutes to give a short talk in the “workshop paper fast forward”, and present a live demo in front of the poster with A1 size (59.4 cm width x 84.1 cm height) of the provided kiosk (with plugs). The attendees and the presenters can directly interact and share the research ideas, experiences, and suggestions for the proposed prototype. The papers with research potentials and qualified written articles for the emerging topics in XR can be accepted. Please choose one of the three submission categories:

* Abstract: 1-2 pages

* Short paper, demo, or poster: 2-4 pages

* Long paper: 4-6 pages

The submitted technical paper manuscripts (which will be published in IEEE Xplore) in double-column IEEE format should follow the official IEEE Manuscript Formatting guidelines, which is the same as the guidelines available on the AIVR 2018 web page (http://aivr.asia.edu.tw/2018/). All submissions should be directly submitted to the organizers by email.
