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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
