[visionlist] ICAT-EGVE 2017 2nd Call For Participation

ICAT-EGVE 2017 2nd Call For Participation

22nd – 24th November, 2017, Adelaide, Australia


The ICAT-EGVE 2017 conference will be held November 22nd – 24th in Adelaide, Australia. This is the merger of the 27th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2017) and the 22nd Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2017).

Together these are two of the oldest international conferences in the world on Artificial Reality and Virtual Environments, and provide a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and 3D User Interfaces. This is a great opportunity to renew old friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Adelaide has to offer.

Adelaide is one of the most beautiful cities in Australia located by beautiful beaches on one side and expansive mountains and desert on the other. Famous for its festivals, food and wine, Adelaide is an ideal place to experience Australia. Attendees will be able to visit the Barossa Valley for some of the best wine and food in the world, see kangaroos and koala in the local wildlife parks, learn history in the fascinating local museums or hike through breath-taking scenery.

ICAT-EGVE 2017 seeks original, high-quality submissions describing research, applications or systems in all areas of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Telexistence, and 3D User Interfaces. Research papers should describe results that contributes to advancements in the following areas:

·      3D interaction for VR/AR

·      VR/AR systems and toolkits

·      User studies and evaluation for VR/AR/MR

·      Telexistence, Telepresence and Teleimmersion

·      Haptics, audio, and other non-visual modalities

·      Serious games and edutainment using VR/AR/MR

·      Presence, cognition, and embodiment in VR/AR/MR

·      Novel devices (both input and output) for VR, AR, MR, and haptics

·      Multi-user and distributed VR, AR, teleimmersion and telepresence

·      Immersive projection technologies and other advanced display technologies

·      Submissions in other related areas are welcome too

All accepted papers are going to be published in the Eurographics Digital Library. In addition, they will be cited and indexed in the ACM Digital Library.

We will accept submissions in three categories:

·      Papers (Full or short)

·      Posters

·      Demonstrations

Submission Information

Full papers must be in English and not exceed eight (8) pages in length. Short papers must be in English and not exceed four (4) pages in length.  Posters must be in English and not exceed two (2) pages in length. Demonstration submissions consist of a description of the demonstration not exceeding two (2) pages in length, and a video showing the demonstration working.

ICAT-EGVE uses a double-blind review process. Therefore, submissions should not contain information (including citations and optional videos) that unnecessarily identifies the authors or their institutions or places of work. All content must be submitted electronically as PDF. Authors are encouraged to submit videos to aid the program committee in the review of their submissions.

All submissions will be reviewed by the paper committee, poster chairs or demonstration chairs. All accepted papers are going to be published in the Digital Library of the Eurographics. In addition, they are going to be cited and indexed in the ACM Digital Library, including the DOI. Accepted posters and demonstrations will be published in the proceedings and in the Eurographics Digital Library.

Note: Submissions should be original, unpublished work, and should not be in submission to other venues concurrently. Any dual submissions will be rejected outright without review.

Vision-Science Research Assistant Professor

The Storm Eye Institute invites applications and nominations to fill a Vision Science Position at the rank of Research Assistant Professor. This position is part of the South Carolina SmartState Center on Gene and Pharmaceutical Treatment of Retinal Degenerative
Diseases. A focus of the center is to study mechanisms of retinal degeneration in models of age-related macular degeneration. This project is highly collaborative, requiring an applicant with a strong interest and motivation for interdisciplinary research.
The successful candidate will have a strong background in cell biology, ophthalmology, neurosciences or immunology. Candidates interested in the development of novel therapeutic approaches are particularly encouraged to apply.


Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) with experience in molecular biology, protein chemistry, immunohistochemistry and cell biology preferred. Experience with complement biology and/or animal models of AMD will be advantageous. In addition,
candidates should have a compelling history of obtaining extramural funding. Current research strengths in the department include photoreceptor cell metabolism, neuroprotection in glaucoma, pluripotent stem cell differentiation, retinal degenerative disease,
and molecular biology of RPE function. Research at MUSC is supported by several excellent core facilities specializing in imaging, genetically modified mice and rats, drug discovery, proteomics, genomics, and flow cytometry. The Department is located in the
Storm Eye Institute and consists of 27 clinical and research faculty, 9 of which are full-time research faculty. The Department has strong philanthropic support with nine endowed chairs.


The Medical University of South Carolina is home to the NCI-designated Hollings Cancer Center, a Clinical and Translational Science Award, a Center for Genomic Medicine, and new research buildings in Bioengineering and Drug Discovery, and is experiencing
growth in clinical programs and outreach. This is an outstanding opportunity in a city known for its ocean front location and enviable quality of life.


Interested individuals should apply online at the MUSC website: http://ift.tt/2iJVrMS


Please include a letter of interest, CV and contact information for 3 references. For questions, please contact Dr. Bärbel (Barb) Rohrer at rohrer@musc.edu or phone (843) 792-5086.

[visionlist] PhD studentship in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience: BCBL, Basque Center on Brain Cognition and Language (San Sebastian, Spain)

Applications are invited for a 4-year full-time PhD Studentship in cognitive neuroscience at the Basque Center on Brain Cognition and Language (BCBL) in San Sebastian (Spain) to study the development of metacognition in connection with executive and language control processes in the human brain. Applicants should have an honours and a Masters degree in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Computer science, or Neuroscience and have a strong interest in the key areas of  cognitive neuroscience that are relevant for the research, coupled with strong computational skills (e.g., Python, Matlab). Experience with state-of-the art neuroscientific techniques (e.g., MRI) is highly desirable as well as to demonstrate an ability to work with pediatric and adult samples. Both excellent communication skills and command of the Spanish language is a requirement. The student will receive a stipend of 16.000 € during the first 2 years and 18.000 € during the last 2 years. Despite the fact that the position is for 4 years, it is expected that the elected candidate will apply for predoctoral grants from national and local funding agencies.The BCBL research facilities include a 3T Siemens Prisma MRI, a whole-head MEG system, four ERP labs, a NIRS lab, a baby lab, and several well-equipped behavioral labs including eye trackers and a computing cluster. There are also excellent technical support team and research staff. Details of BCBL faculty research interests and research facilities can be found at http://ift.tt/21UUyx0.Interested candidates should email Kepa Paz-Alonso, p.pazalonso@bcbl.eu, and David Soto, d.soto@bcbl.eu, with a covering letter outlining research interests, CV and the names of two referees that can provide letters of recommendation.
