  • animation, e.g. physically-based, vision-based, knowledge-based and geometric approaches
  • virtual and augmented reality
  • planning, learning, optimization for animation
  • interfaces for creating and editing animations
  • perception in animation
  • autonomous characters, group and crowd behavior
  • natural phenomena
  • mathematical foundations of animation
  • haptics
  • sound interfaces
  • related techniques, e. g. collision detection and contact handling
  • applications, e. g. in robotics, medicine, entertainment


Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research and application papers addressing all areas of VRIPHYS.
Paper submissions in PDF should be formatted according to the EG publication style, and the EG exclusive licence form has to be filled, following the instructions:

Submissions must be anonymous, should be written in English and should not exceed 10 pages.
