Future development of research perspectives of virtual reality in construction applications

21.10.2011
11th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR 2011), November, 3 and 4, in Weimar, Germany

The 11th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality, CONVR 2011, brings together leading researchers and applicants from a wide range of architecture, civil engineering and the construction industry and enhances the exchange of concepts and methods for the application of virtual reality and augmented reality.

The aim of the conference is to report on ideas, improvements, and applications of innovative international research activities and on strategies for the future development of research perspectives of virtual reality in construction applications.

In 2011 the CONVR will focus on the following topics:

• Design visualization
• Construction visualization
• Building information modelling (BIM)
• Simulation in construction
• 3D geographic information systems
• Mobile and wearable computing
• Virtual reality in education and training applications
• Collaborative visual and augmented environments
• Interactive media environments
Authors from all over the world submitted more than 120 papers. The scientific committee invited 80 authors to present their papers at the CONVR 2011 in Weimar.

The scientific committee is pleased to present as keynote speakers:

Prof. Simaan M. AbouRizk
NSERC Senior Industrial Research Chair
Professor Construction Engineering and Management University of Alberta, Canada
Prof. Bernd Fröhlich
Professor Virtual Reality Systems
Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany
Prof. Nashwan Dawood
Professor of Construction
Director of TFI (Technology Future Institutes), Director CCIR (Centre for Construction Innovation & Research) Teesside University, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom

We invite all interested researchers and practitioners to register and join the latest developments in construction applications of virtual reality.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
