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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
