This international event will be a unique opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge with virtual reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user interfaces. And, of course, it is a good time to renew friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Little Rock has to offer.
ICAT and EGVE were merged experimentally two times, in Lyon in 2009, and in Madrid in 2012. After these two very successful experiences, and many formal and informal discussions, the steering committees of both ICAT and EGVE expressed the desire to expand and strengthen their cooperation through the merger of the ICAT conference and the EGVE conference into a conference named ICAT-EGVE. The aim of the merger is to expand the conference in order to make it one of the foremost scientific conferences in the field of virtual reality in future.
