ICAT is the oldest international conference on Virtual Reality and Telexistence. The organizing committee cordially invites you to submit your technical work and experimental results in Virtual Reality science and technology to this conference.

ICAT 2011 will not only look for innovations in the VR technology itself, but also exploring novel ways to transfer and express information and creative ideas to the society and people. ICAT 2011 will run technical sessions covering conventional VR areas and new emerging areas with a lineup of plenary sessions, invited talks, tutorials, workshops and VR technology/art exhibitions.

Over the three days of ICAT 2011 you will have opportunities to experience the state of the art technologies in Virtual Reality and Telexistence in technical sessions, meet old friends or make new ones, and some more exciting events we would prepare.

About Osaka:

Since ancient times in the 7th century, Osaka has been a gathering place. Located at the confluence of a vast web of busy river and sea routes, it naturally grew into a flourishing economic center and became the gateway to Japan for travelers and traders from all over Asia. It was here that Japan first met the world.

Osaka is located at the center of west part of Japan and far away from the epicenter and the affected nuclear power plants; we are located over 500 kilometers from Fukushima and at an altitude of 50 meters. We all welcome you to attend to ICAT 2011 safely.
