MoReal 2017: 1st Workshop on Mobile Virtual and Augmented Reality

With the advent of consumer head-mounted displays for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, powered by mobile devices or a nearby desktop computer, mobile VR and AR scenarios are now a reality. With the intense competition that has ensued in this industry, more companies are supporting untethered VR and AR scenarios. Many technologies behind these devices present diverse challenges of importance to researchers. There are many research challenges across graphics, computer vision, energy consumption, network latency, HCI, security, and sensor networking. While this field is interdisciplinary by nature, many proposed ideas have direct impact on how networking protocols and infrastructures are designed and managed.

In this first Mobile Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality workshop at MobiSys, we will bring together practitioners as well as interested researchers to discuss the latest developments in this growing field. We will identify what we have already achieved, the challenges that lie ahead, and promising avenues forward.

Submitted papers will appear in the Mobisys' 17 proceedings.

Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended manuscripts of their papers for possible publication in a special section of the Computers & Graphics journal. Please be aware of ACM's policy on revisions and resubmissions of previously published work.
