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: Self-repairing batteries

UTokyo engineers develop a way to create high-capacity long-life batteries

Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...

Im Focus: A step towards probabilistic computing

Working group led by physicist Professor Ulrich Nowak at the University of Konstanz, in collaboration with a team of physicists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, demonstrates how skyrmions can be used for the computer concepts of the future

When it comes to performing a calculation destined to arrive at an exact result, humans are hopelessly inferior to the computer. In other areas, humans are...

Im Focus: Recording embryonic development

Scientists develop a molecular recording tool that enables in vivo lineage tracing of embryonic cells

The beginning of new life starts with a fascinating process: A single cell gives rise to progenitor cells that eventually differentiate into the three germ...
