April 22-24, 2020
Place de Hercé
Laval, France ;

Abstract registration deadline: January 10, 2020
Submission deadline: January 17, 2020

The annual ConVRgence (VRIC) – Laval Virtual scientific conference – is a global forum for researchers and engineers from industry, academia and research institutes to discuss and exchange ideas, methods and results on Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, new usage scenarios and emerging technologies. The scope of the conference covers a variety of topics ranging from theoretical developments to industrial applications and case studies. You have the opportunity to share your knowledge by submitting and presenting an abstract or a paper.


All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Accepted papers and abstracts appear on the ConVRgence 2020 proceedings or on IJVR journal and will be available for free for all readers. During the conference, presenters have up to 20-minutes (including questions) to present their work. ConVRgence (VRIC) 2020 seeks original contributions in all areas related to virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and 3D user interfaces (3DUIs).

ConVRgence (VRIC) 2020 features two categories of submissions: abstracts (500 to 900 words) or papers (2 to 10 pages). In cooperation with IJVR (International Journal of Virtual Reality), papers with substantial contribution will directly be included on IJVR. (Discover soon their new web platform on
