ReVolutionは、毎年バーチャルリアリティ分野の最も新機軸となるプロジェクトを表彰する国際コンテストです。業界関係者と科学者で構成される審査員団により選ばれた優秀なプロジェクトには、Laval Virtual 見本市の会場内にスタンドが与えられます。

遊びの要素が強いものから非常に学術的なものまでと、幅広いこれらのプロジェクトは、明日の日常生活の一部となりうるバーチャルリアリティの未来のテクノロジーへの第一歩なのです。

このコンテストに参加するには、オンラインフォームにご入力ください 。応募締切は、2012年1月17日です


まずは「Call for Demos」を御覧ください。

なお、今年のテーマは「Virtual Reality that moves you」(あなたを動かすVR)となりました。

また非常に豪勢な審査委員会になりました。


Jury Committee :

  • Thierry FREY (Paris ACM Siggraph & D.S.T.M., FR)
  • Mashhuda GLENCROSS (Loughborough University, UK)
  • Leo HOURVITZ (Polygon Pictures, JP)
  • Matthieu LEPINE (Laval Virtual, FR)
  • Simon RICHIR (Arts & Métiers ParisTech, FR)
  • Preston J SMITH (Laureate Institute for Brain Research)
  • Turner WHITTED (Microsoft Research)
  • Akihiko SHIRAI (KAIT, JP)

日程はこのようになります。

SIGGRAPHの締め切りが今年はとても遅い時期で、Laval Virtualが3月末なので、e-techと並行して投稿することをオススメいたします。

(上記の通りSIGGRAPHの審査員とも重複する方が多く、実際のデモを見て結果を決めることもよくあるので…)

また今年は、国際会議VRICへのプロシーディング収録は審査員からのコメントと「リコメンデーション」、その後、本人の選択により3月までに再度投稿→収録という流れを取ります。

自動的に収録されるわけではありませんのでご注意下さい。この方式を取りますので、他の学会・国際会議へ重複投稿を防ぐ場合は収録辞退可能となります。

(Awardも例年同様、別の審査基準になりますので、別途エントリーが必要です)


その他、日本語で必要な情報はこちらに掲示していきます。

みなさんのすばらしい作品をお待ちしております!  白井暁彦

Presentation :

Laval Virtual ReVolution presents the world's most innovative achievements in the field of virtual reality, augmented reality and their future applications and is an annual honor of the world's finest VR projects. It is a hall of fame that decides the best Virtual Reality demonstration and/or application from all over the world. Virtual Reality is not only a technology but also a never ending story about the history between computers and humans. We cannot know the ending of this story yet, as we still need to find and walk one of the many possible paths that will lead us to a future navigated by brilliant stars.Future voyagers will continue staring at those stars along their way. Of course, a great number of academic papers or commercial products can build a culture of Virtual Reality. However we suggest a new relation between developmental projects and the general public at on-site demonstrations. If a project has impact, technology and persuasiveness, it might move the general public and change our commonsense. So, this means a revolution in the history of Virtual Reality.

 

 

Please try to join today's stardom with your exciting project and share in the activity from all over the world! We hope to accept your brilliant projects which can evolve the current conceptions of Virtual Reality and make changes to the current human-computer interfaces and Virtual Reality history.

  • Technology Demonstration 
  • Interactive Arts 
  • Entertainment VR 
  • New Media Designs
  • New Game Systems 
  • New Human Interfaces and Displays
... And any other "non genre" VR projects

Current Virtual Reality technology includes computer- generated graphics, display technologies, haptics, force feedback and interface design in the context of implementing new experiences that encourage users to use a virtual sytem to enhance their real, mundane lives.

 

Edito 2012 : "Virtual Reality that moves you"

Such themes have been shared in every version of ReVolution since 2006. In an "Edito" of VRIC proceedings, keywords were used in the titles "ReVolution Causes Revolutions"(2009),"Diverseness"(2010) and "Converging" (2011) to explain the annual ReVolutions.

This year's ReVolution had defined a theme of "Virtual Reality That Moves You" before accepting applications for this year’s brilliant projects. The theme suggests that Virtual Reality should not be limited by computer displays and aims to "move" the user with new experiences in the "VR Mix" zone at Laval Virtual 2012. Let us explore how we can be moved by such innovative demonstrations.

 

Why should you submit?

  • Laval Virtual is well known as a public field testing opportunity not only for professionals and researchers. 
  • Laval Virtual and VRIC, an international academic conference, run in parallel. If you need an academic reference, we also have publication as VRIC proceeding.
  • You can also protect your publication after this submission, so you can show your latest demo in Laval to the valued over 10 thousands of visitors and you can submit it to other journals later. If your project will be accepted as "Invited", Laval Virtual pay for your flights, foods and accommodations.
  • You have also a chance to get a Laval Virtual Award. Laval Virtual Awards and ReVolution have different submission and jury committees but your installed demonstration to the Laval Virtual Expo staff should give a strong impression on-site rather than in video.
