CALL FOR PAPERS

ISPR 2012 "Presence Live!" Conference
International Society for Presence Research Annual Conference

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
October 24 - 26, 2012

http://ispr.info

Submission deadline: June 15, 2012

INTRODUCTION

-- What´s it about?

Presence, short for telepresence, happens when people use
technology and overlook at least part of its role in the experience:

A telepresence conferencing system makes us feel as if we´re
face-to-face; an online virtual world seems real; a 3D IMAX film
makes us reach out to touch objects on the screen; we get `lost´
in the worlds of novels, TV shows, movies, videogames and
theme park rides; doctors, engineers, explorers and many others
operate machinery thousands of miles away as if they were at the
remote site; students learn about the world and workers learn
how to do their jobs using compelling simulations; we think of and
interact with computers, agents, avatars, robots and androids as if
they were living social entities even though we know they´re not;
we´re delighted by perceptual illusions in everything from ancient
Trompe-l´oeil paintings to modern digital art. As we expand
technology´s capabilities and applications, we´re having ever
more, and ever more compelling, presence experiences.

-- A New Kind of Presence conference

Following a series of 13 successful PRESENCE conferences,
ISPR 2012 extends presence scholarship to new audiences:
ISPR is teaming with Interwork Media to produce a
ground-breaking event that will showcase ISPR researchers and
research studies to not only a diverse academic community in
communication, computer science, psychology, philosophy, the
arts, business, education and other fields, but to researchers and
professionals in commercial, government, educational and other
industry sectors. Technology firms - hardware, software,
infrastructure, services - will be encouraged to attend to
contribute their findings and projects that support the goals of the
conference.

ISPR 2012 will retain the single-track format and pleasant social
environment of previous conferences while featuring expanded
presentations, workshops and hands-on demonstrations of
presence applications, services and projects.

TOPICS

We seek original, high quality papers and demonstrations that
contribute to our collective understanding of the power and
breadth of presence phenomena and presence applications in
any/every aspect of life. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

* Presence technologies
* Mobile & ubiquitous presence
* Presence applications in entertainment
* Presence applications in games
* Presence applications in medicine and therapy
* Presence applications in the arts and humanities
* Presence applications in augmented/mixed reality
* Presence applications in education
* Presence applications in ...
* Presence theory
* Measures of presence
* Philosophical perspectives on presence
* Psychological perspectives on presence
* Neuropsychology of presence
* The ethics of presence
* Presence in the next 25 years

All accepted papers will be collected in the official conference
proceedings (with ISBN) and will be permanently available for
download in the ISPR conference archive. We expect to have all
accepted papers included in the ACM Digital Library. One or more
special journal issues are likely as well.

CONFERENCE FORMAT

ISPR 2012 will have an interactive format in which all participants
(attendees, presenters, invited speakers) attend each of the
sessions as well as social events, allowing participants to
exchange ideas and build knowledge together as the conference
progresses.

The first two days will feature hands-on demonstrations by
researchers as well as technology and application vendors;
keynote presentations and panels that feature research related to
diverse presence applications; and short, dedicated workshops
on a variety of topics designed to provide focused educational
experiences on subjects related to presence technology, theory
and measurement. The final day of the conference will feature
additional academic presentations on additional presence-related
topics.

The language of the conference is English.

VENUE

The conference will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
The birthplace of the nation, Philadelphia is a city rich in history
and steeped in culture. It´s the fourth largest media and
telecommunications market in the country, conveniently located
between New York and Washington, D. C. (each approximately 2
hours away by train). Details about the conference site will be
announced soon.

ACCOMMODATIONS

A free online hotel booking facility with specially discounted rates
for conference attendees will be available via the ISPR web site.

REGISTRATION

Registration will be available online. Fees, which will include
meals and social events, will be at or below those for previous
ISPR PRESENCE conferences; every effort will be made to
reduce fees for participating academics, and particularly for
graduate students.

will be included in the Proceedings.
