The SVR 2021 Main Track is the conventional conference submission track. We invite technical paper contributions to this track for works that present original unpublished research in the areas of virtual, augmented and mixed realities and related areas. Manuscripts submitted to this track must be in English, and must be prepared following the template available below. All papers will pass through a confidential and double-blind review process by at least three experts in the topic of the work, and thus all submitted manuscripts must be anonymized. All papers accepted in this track are scheduled and must be presented at the conference. Please review our no-show and no-registration policy below or at this link.
The final conference program will only include accepted papers where at least one author registered with full registration rate for the conference. For accepted papers where at least one author is already registered at the full rate, this fulfills the obligation for up to one (1) paper (i.e., each paper must be associated with a different full registration). All papers included in the proceedings of the conference will be published in the ACM Digital Library.Topics include, but are not limited to:
During the submission process, each paper should be classified as one of the following categories:1) Research paper: the goal of this track is to present papers with original research describing results that contribute to advances in the state-of-the-art of VR/AR-related topics.
Submission typesFull Papers: Full papers should contain between 6 and 10 pages (including references) and present a level of contribution commensurate with its length. Research full papers should present consolidated research ideas with strong evaluation evidence of the results. Application and case study full papers should report on mature applications, which have been thoroughly tested with evidence of the effectiveness of the tool. All review papers are expected to be submitted as full papers. Exceptionally, review papers may contain up to 12 pages (including references).
Submission ProcessAll submissions must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings template. Among the various ACM paper templates, make sure that you use the “SigConf” version, i.e., use “sample-sigconf.tex” if you use LaTeX, and “Interim layout.docx” if you use MS Word for preparing your manuscript. The ACM LaTeX template is also available on Overleaf platform . In addition, make sure that you use the 2012 ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) to choose CCS Concepts for your paper. For detailed instructions, refer to the CCS 2012 page. Papers should be written in English. Authors' names and affiliations should be removed from the submitted manuscript to guarantee a blind review. The electronic manuscript must be submitted in the Portable Document Format (PDF file). We encourage authors to submit supporting video material in addition to the PDF submission. To submit a paper, go to the PCS system and select “SVR > SVR 2021 > SVR 2021 Main Track” to set up a submission.
As the review process of submissions will be double blind, authors must prepare their manuscripts without including any indication of their identities or institutional affiliations. Authors' identities will be tracked only by the submission system, and visible only to the track chairs. The program committee members and referees who review the paper will not know the identity of the authors.
To ensure anonymity of authorship during the review process, authors must prepare their manuscript as follows:
It is the responsibility of authors to do their best to preserve anonymity. Papers that do not follow the guidelines here, or otherwise potentially reveal the identity of the authors, are subject to immediate rejection.
No-show papers are defined as accepted papers submitted by authors who subsequently did not present the paper at the technical meeting. No-registration papers are defined as accepted papers where at least one author did not register with full paid registration rate for the conference, where each paper must be associated with a different full paid registration. No-show and no-registration papers will not be included in the program and will be removed from the proceedings and from the ACM Digital Library.
