IEEE 3DUI 2009 Call for Participation

[Apologies for possible multiple copies]

Advance Registration is available On or Before February 10, 2009 !!

IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces 2009
March 14-15, Lafayette, Louisiana, USA
(in conjunction with IEEE Virtual Reality 2009)
3DUI 2009 - Call for Papers

We invite you to participate in the IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces
2009. The 3DUI 2009 Symposium is the fourth international symposium
focused on the topic of 3D UIs and will be held to provide an intensive
exchange between industrial and academic researchers working in various
3DUI research areas and to trigger discussions among participants. It
builds on successful 3DUI workshops in 2004 and 2005, as well as the
IEEE 3DUI Symposiums in 2006, 2007 and 2008. The symposium will last for
two days, and will be followed immediately by the IEEE VR conference.

 "The Inner Child of 3DUI Research"

 Dr. Gordon Kurtenbach,
 Director in the Applied Research Group, Autodesk


 Everyday more and more of our products, vehicles and buildings are
 designed with 3D digital tools. Essentially, digital prototyping has
 come of age, so much so that it could be considered unusual for
 something to be designed without a CAD tool being used at some point in
 the design process. Based on this success, are we done? In this talk
 I'll argue that there are ideas yet to explore which are compelling and
 intrinsically linked to research on 3DUIs that may produce research
 contributions that lead to both the usual increase in productivity but
 also feed a user's sense of joy, wonder, and satisfaction.


 Gordon Kurtenbach is a director in the Applied Research Group at
 Autodesk. The group's focus is on 3D interactive graphics with research
 in the areas of interaction technologies, modeling, animation and
 rendering. Prior to Autodesk, Gordon was a researcher at Xerox's Palo
 Alto Research Center and Apple Computer's Advanced Technology group.
 Gordon recieved his Ph.D. from University of Toronto in Computer Science
 and has many research publications and patents in human computer
 interaction. Research areas: human-computer interaction: input devices,
 bi-manual input, high degree of freedom input, menuing systems, UI for
 3d graphics, human motor control and perception. Gord works with George
 Fitzmaurice, Jos Stam, and Azam Khan.
