Good news: by popular request, the deadline for submitting papers has been extended to 30 September 2017.



The "Scientific conference" is the International Conference on 3D Immersion, formerly known as the International Conference on 3D Imaging. The conference is now in its 7th edition. IC3D presents the latest information in 3D immersion research & development, and provides a way to anticipate what will soon emerge from skunk-works, research laboratories. IC3D emphasizes the mid and long terms, and the limits of the possible.

The scope of IC3D is ALL aspects – scientific, engineering, mathematical, ... - and ALL applications of ALL forms of 3D immersion, including 3D stereo, 3D imaging, 3D audio, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), 3D cinema, and 3D cinematic VR. All modalities of 3D imaging are eligible: (auto)stereoscopic, light-field, holographic, range, …

IC3D consists in a series of presentations (oral or poster) of the papers submitted by authors and accepted after evaluation by reviewers.

As for the first six (6) editions of IC3D, we are delighted to have the technical co-sponsorship of the Signal Processing Society of the IEEE, the “world's largest technical professional association for the advancement of technology”.

As for all prior editions, this year's conference proceedings will be archived in the IEEE Xplore digital library, thereby providing maximum visibility to the authors and their papers.

IC3D is one of the main international conferences fully dedicated to all scientific and engineering facets of 3D immersion. It is unique because of its seamless integration in an event (Stereopsia) that also covers the artistic, technological, content, and business facets of 3D immersion.

If 3D immersion R&D - and, more generally 3D R&D - is your cup of tea, we count on you to submit one or more papers! You may then win a "Best Paper Award" at our Awards Ceremony, in the form of a Lumiere Award from the Advanced Imaging Society & VR Society, both based in Hollywood, CA.

IC3D and the Professional Conference (PCON) occur in immediate succession, forming a continuum from the mathematical details of 3D immersion to the best 3D immersive contents.

Whom for?

For scientists, engineers, academics, and researchers.

How to participate?

By attending the conference, which implies registration. This applies to all attendees, including speakers. The registration will be open in July 2017.
