Welcome!

We invite you to participate in ICAT-EGVE 2016, the merger of the 26th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2016) and the 21st Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2016) in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA.

This international event will be a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge with virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user interfaces. And, of course, it is a good time to renew friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Little Rock has to offer.

Venue

We are fortunate to have been able to secure an exceptional venue for this event: the conference will be held at the Clinton Presidential Library.

New this year: because the event will be held at the Library, the exhibits and demos will be set up as a special event and will be open to the public. We will annouce them to the community and we expect to see significant interest from the public and business communitites.

ICAT and EGVE were merged experimentally two times, in Lyon in 2009, and in Madrid in 2012. After these two very successful experiences, and many formal and informal discussions, the steering committees of both ICAT and EGVE expressed the desire to expand and strengthen their cooperation through the merger of the ICAT conference and the EGVE conference into a conference named ICAT-EGVE. The aim of the merger is to expand the conference in order to make it one of the foremost scientific conferences in the field of virtual reality in future.

We are looking forward to seeing you in beautiful Little Rock, Arkansas!
