Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the 11th Workshop on Virtual Reality Interaction and Physical Simulation (VRIPHYS 2014).
The workshop is organized in cooperation with Eurographics.
All accepted papers will be published in Eurographics' Digital Library.

The workshop will be hosted at University of Bremen, Germany, and will take place on Sep. 24-25, 2014.
VRIPHYS is one of the well-established international conferences in the field of computer animation and virtual reality.
The workshop provides a great opportunity for researchers to present and discuss their latest results and to share ideas for potential directions of future research in virtual reality and computer animation.

  • VRIPHYS 2014 seeks original, high-quality papers in all areas related, but not necessarily restricted to:
  • animation, e.g. physically-based, vision-based, knowledge-based, and geometric approaches
  • virtual and augmented reality
  • planning, learning, optimization for animation
  • interfaces for creating and editing animations
  • perception in animation
  • autonomous characters, group and crowd behavior
  • natural phenomena
  • mathematical foundations of animation
  • haptics
  • sound rendering & interfaces
  • related techniques, e. g. collision detection and contact handling
  • applications, e.g. in robotics, medicine, entertainment

Continuing its successful introduction last year, VRIPHYS 2014 will feature a PhD & work-in-progress session


Paper submissions should be formatted according to the EG publication style in PDF. You can download a Latex template here.
Submissions must be anonymous, should be written in English, and should not exceed 10 pages. We encourage the submission of supplementary videos to particularly illustrate dynamic aspects of your submission.
All materials need to be submitted electronically through the SRM portal.

All submissions will be reviewed double-blind by members of the International Program Committee.
Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop. A full proceedings with all accepted papers will be published at the time of the workshop. In addition, they will be published in the Eurographics Digital Library.

Authors must complete a EG exclusive license form, which can be downloaded here.
(Authors retain their right to publish an electronic version of their paper on their personal or employer's website.)

Work in Progress Session

In the scope of the VRIPHYS 2014 conference, an oral session with short presentations (typically 15-20 min including questions) will be organized. These presentations should focus on aspects related to Virtual Reality Interaction and Physical Simulation.

Work in progress, unpublished or recent results are particularly well suited for this session. The presented work will not be included in the proceedings, so that participants get feedback on their work without preventing them from submitting their work later. This workshop is therefore well suited for Ph.D. candidates.

To present your work during these sessions, please send us an abstract (2 pages max.) at vriphys14 at by the 30th of August 2014.

A PDF version of the call for the work in progress session can be found here.

Best paper award

A "Best Paper Award" will be given to the author(s) of a full paper presented at the conference, selected by the Organizing Committee. This year, NVIDIA is happy to support this with the donation of an NVIDIA Quadro 6000 graphics card for the
Best Paper Award.
The authors of the best paper will be invited to submit an extended version to the journal Computers & Graphics.
