E-iED 2014 Summit Vienna | Extended Submission Deadline: 20 July

**July 20, 2014**


E-IED 2014 – 4th European Immersive Education Summit

Vienna, Austria, 24-26 November, 2014



The objective of the European Immersive Education (iED) Summit is to
bring together researchers, developers, educators, decision makers, and
industry from all over the world. It consists of scientific
presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions and break-out
sessions. Fairly new is the hands-on demo stream, which combines a short
paper presentation with an extended hands-on presentation for the
attendees. Following a bottom-up way, special tracks and workshops cover
emerging topics and trends suggested and organized by the community and
focused groups. Also speed sessions enable participants to present an
aspect of their work or interest in a fun and speedy way. The summit
will further offer a platform to explore research collaborations and
give international research consortiums room to share their results.
The Summit will be organized by and hosted at the University of Applied
Science BFI Vienna in conjunction with Graz University of Technology.


Continuing the success of the conference series, the Fourth European
Immersive Education (iED) Summit is focusing on “Science meets Business
– From Innovative Research to Successful Services and Products”. It
covers broad aspects from emerging trends and technologies, sound
research and best practices, to successful products and services. iED
Summits feature virtual worlds, learning and motivational games,
educational simulations, mixed/augmented reality, and related learning
and teaching tools, techniques, technologies, and standards.

For the main conference, topics of interest in the context of immersive
environments include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Immersive Techniques, Systems and Devices
• Behavioral and Pedagogical Analysis
• Games and Entertainment
• A Glance into the Future: Innovations, Challenges and Applications
• Art and Creativity


* Paper Submission: July 20 (EXTENDED)
* Notification of Acceptance: August 31
* Posters and Speed Sharing: September 1
* Notification of Acceptance: September 15


The submitted papers must not exceed 6 pages (short paper) or 10 pages
(full paper). Contributions are welcome on work-in-progress, research
results, technical development, and best practices. Research,
development, and best practices contributions will be accepted according
to their quality and relevance either as full or short papers.
Work-in-progress will only be accepted as short papers.


As a newly introduced contribution stream, hands-on demo papers will
mainly focus on the life presentation of developed tools or innovative
applications. Presenters should bring a working prototype and the
required devices to the presentation. A short paper description together
with a short video short video will be published.


Research and projects in the idea or early beginning stage as well as
work in progress may be also presented by means of posters. The poster
submission should consist of a one page abstract.


Papers must follow the style guide described above and be submitted via
the iED Europe submission EasyChair system
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eiedsummit2014) selecting
the chosen contribution type.


The Program Committee will review all papers through a single-blind
review process.
A selection of the best papers will be published on Springer’s
“Communications in Computer and Information
Science”(http://www.springer.com/series/7899). Authors will be notified
following the summit with further information about this. All full
papers following the quality standards and selected short papers will be
added in the indexed conference proceedings. The other papers will be
added to a non-index proceedings volume assigned by an ISSN number and
only online accessible.
