CONVR 2010 Overview
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are exciting technologies that offer considerable potential benefits in all stages of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction(AEC) process, from initial planning and conceptual design to facility management and operations. VR and AR allow people to see and interact with a building or infrastructure design and construction process prior to it being constructed.
CONVR 2010 (The 10th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality) will bring together researchers and practitioners in all areas of the Architecture, Civil Engineering and Construction Industry to promote the exchange of ideas for applying VR and AR. The objective of the conference is to report and disseminate ideas, progress, and products of innovative international research activities in this field and formulate strategies for future research directions.
This 10th of CONVR is hosted by Miyagi University jointly with Osaka University, Chuo University and Teesside University (UK).
