Dear colleagues,

We are happy to invite you to our workshop on Collaborative Virtual Training for Challenging Contexts. Please find all important information and the description below.

About the workshop

Virtual reality provides great opportunities to simulate various environments and situations as reproducible and controllable training environments. Recently, we have seen considerable effort to use virtual training environments (VTEs) in many demanding training contexts, e.g. police training, medical first responder training, firefighter training, etc.

The overarching goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines and backgrounds in order to jointly develop a research agenda on how currently underrepresented aspects of social and collaborative work can be integrated into VR training.

Participants will either submit a position paper (max. 4 pages ACM format) addressing one of the themes of the workshop, or submit a motivation statement, describing their motivation to join the workshop and/or what they can contribute towards the workshop agenda as well as a description or speculation how their work already benefits or might benefit from collaborative VR training in the future (max. 4 pages ACM Format). All submissions undergo a single blind review process by at least two reviewers.

Therefore, in this one-day online workshop we aim to discuss two themes around training in challenging environments: (1) Multi-sensory experience: novel collaborative interfaces for VTEs and (2) Multi-user interaction: collaboration between trainers and trainees.

To express interest, participants can either:

  • submit a position paper (max. 4 pages ACM format – without references) addressing one of the themes of the workshop or
  • submit a motivation statement (max. 4 pages ACM format), describing their reasons for joining the workshop and what they would contribute towards the workshop agenda.

Deadline for submission is 24.02.2022. Submissions must be sent by email to

All submissions undergo a single blind review process. We will select participants based on the potential contribution they can offer to the workshop. We are striving towards a diverse background of participants, aiming for a balance of researchers, practitioners, and end-user organizations.

At least one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop and all participants must register for the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.

We are looking forward to receiving your submission!

All the best,
