Special Track on Cloud Computing for Augmented Reality, Computer Graphics and Visualization

As part of

The 3rd International Conference on Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Computer Graphics

June 15-18, 2016
Otranto (Lecce), Italy 

Important Dates: 
Submission: February 21, 2016
Notification of acceptance: March 21, 2016
Camera-ready submission: March 31, 2016
Conference Dates: June 15-18, 2016

Scope and Objectives:
Augmented Reality has found promising applications in various segments such as commerce, art, architecture and education. With the growing of smart features and sensors in the mobiles and tablets, these portable devices are becoming the emperors of digital world of today resulting in a new platform to be opened for AR in the day-to-day life of common people. However, the limited capabilities in terms of computing processing and data storage of such portable devices represents strong bound for efficient and powerful AR applications. The cloud computing technologies would provide the enabling solution to overcome the computing limiting factors of mobile devices providing a powerful environment to demand the heavy processing and data storage repository required by an AR applications.
The track aims at discussing the state-of-the-art research in cloud computing applied as enabling technologies for augmented reality, computer graphics and visualization for smart devices applications. Emphasis will be on novel advanced frameworks, solutions and technologies, as well as the related issues for computational environments and infrastructures.

Cloud Computing for Augmented Reality, Computer Graphics and Visualization Track includes (but are not limited to) the following topics:
	• Cloud computing technologies and infrastructures for augmented reality
	• Cloud computing technologies and infrastructures for computer graphics
	• Cloud computing technologies and infrastructures for virtual reality
	• Mobile-cloud services for AR, VR and computer graphics
	• Parallel Algorithms for Computer Graphics Applications
	• Cloud Networks for Multimedia Applications
	• Design Tool for Cloud Computing
	• Security techniques for the Cloud
	• Energy management and programming environments
	• Data storage and management in Cloud computing

Instructions for authors:
SALENTO AVR 2016 accepts two types of paper: full papers (10–20 pages), and short papers (6-10 pages).
Full papers should be mainly focused on research, applications or systems describing results that contribute to advances in state-of-the-art software, hardware, algorithms, interaction or human-factors.

Short papers should be mainly focused on work-in-progress, achievements of initial research, projects in early stages of development, case studies, etc. Accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings and presented at the conference as poster.

The authors can refer to Springer’s LNCS webpage (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-791222-0) where nearly all information relevant to contributing authors regarding the LNCS print/electronic publication process can be found. The editors’ guidelines can be also downloaded from http://www.salentoavr.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/SPLNPROC-Editor-Guidelines-Aug2015.pdf.

It is possible to submit full papers and short papers for the indicated special tracks, but also for the other topics of the general tracks. Only papers submitted through the electronic system and strictly adhering to the relevant format will be considered for reviewing and publication. In submitting a paper the author(s) agree that, upon acceptance, they will prepare the final manuscript in time for inclusion into the published proceedings and will present the paper at the conference. At least one author must carry out a regular registration and sign the copyright form to allow the publication of the a paper in the conference proceedings; the final manuscript will not be published without a regular registration (including payment of the registration fee) before the deadline for camera-ready submission.

To submit a paper, please use the following link; a pre-registration is required.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) edited by Springer.
Volumes published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series are indexed by the following services:

ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index – Science (CPCI-S) included in ISI Web of Science
EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases)
