Teams of up to ten people may submit solutions.
Teams must submit a short paper of two pages, with a description of the solution, details about the hardware and software used, a brief description of the closest related work and how your system is novel, and a description of how you iterated upon the design. If your submission is accepted, this paper will be included in the 3DUI proceedings, and therefore must be formatted using the IEEE Computer Society format.
Teams will also submit a video that presents the solution to the public, including an explanation of the equipment, software, and interaction techniques used to solve the problem. Additionally, the video should include representative footage of example users as they perform the task. If your submission is accepted, the video will be included in the electronic proceedings. Videos should have a length of 60-90 seconds, and should include the title along with the names and affiliations of the contestants. The submitted file should be a high quality compressed video with a size of no more than 50 MB. We will accept videos in MPEG (.mpg), Quicktime (.mov), AVI (.avi), MP4 (.mp4), Matroska (.mkv), or Flash Video (.flv) formats.
If your submission is accepted, you will participate in a live demo session at the conference, where you will showcase your work to the 3DUI community and have a chance to win awards. Since this year's contest will be judged live at 3DUI, We will invite the professors from the VR Jam band to be the expert judges and also try the VMIs by themselves. The referees will give three scores:1) the idea of the VMIs’ design concentrating on the developed 3DUI, 2) the novelty of the VMIs’ design and its 3DUI, and 3) the user experiences using the solution. We also will randomly pick 5-10 attendees to try all of the VMIs, and ask them to give an external score to each of them.
The final score will be the combination of the expert judges’ score (70%) plus the random attendees’ scores (30%).
Winners will be determined by a panel of expert judges, based on the live demonstration.
