VECIMS 2011 is an interdisciplinary symposium that intends to bring a methodical instrumentation and measurement perspective to the theory and practice of virtual and virtualized environments, and human-computer interfaces by focusing on the quantitative and metrological aspect of these technologies and their interactive applications in telerobotics, telemedicine, remote control, engineering design, environment sensing and monitoring, training, education, arts, and computer games. 

Papers are solicited on all aspects of virtual environments and human-computer interaction technologies for measurement systems and the related applications, from the points of view of both theory and practice.  This includes but is not limited to multimodal (visual, haptic, audio, etc) virtual environments, sensors and displays, perception and psychophysics, object modeling, model validation, multi-sensor data fusion, soft computing techniques, human-computer interaction, augmented and virtualized reality, virtual reality languages, APIs, RTIs, collaborative distributed virtual environments, model-based telecommunications and telecontrol, calibration, standards, implementation technologies, and applications.

Acceptance/rejection will be emailed by 27 May 2011. The final manuscript is due by 1 July 2011. Submission implies willingness to register at the conference, pay the registration fee and present the paper. Papers will be included in the proceedings only if at least one author will register and pay the registration fee by 1 July 2011 (member and non-member fees only are acceptable to this purpose) - no exceptions. If an author covers more than one paper with her/his registration to guarantee inclusion in the proceedings, she/he must pay a 50 US$ surcharge for each paper in excess of one.
