Call for Participation

The International Conference on Augmented, Virtual Environments and Three-Dimensional Imaging is organized by the European Union IST INTERFACE project (IST-1999-10036) in collaboration with the European Association for Speech, Signal and Image Processing (EURASIP) and is supported by the European Commission / Direcotrate General XIII.

A special session on mixed reality technologies will be organised by the IST project (IST-1999-10942).

The conference will be held in the picturesque Aegean island of Mykonos in Greece, at the most delightful time of the year and will consist of sessions with both invited and contributed papers.

The conference proceedings will be published and distributed to the workshop participants. A selection of the best papers in the conference will be published in a special issue of the Image Communication journal.

During the Conference the EUREKA EURO - HERMES event will take place. A great opportunity to prepare research ideas, new actions or proposals for possible cooperation in RTD projects within the EUREKA network.
