25th International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence
20th Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments

October 28-30, 2015
Kyoto International Community House, Kyoto, Japan

Early registration deadline: September 15, 2015
Access to https://events.eg.org/egshop/jsf/user/conferencelist.jsp
and click on “ICAT-EGVE2015”.

ICAT-EGVE 2015 is the merger of the 25th International Conference on
Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2015) and the 20th Eurographics
Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2015). ICAT-EGVE 2015 will be held
in Kyoto, Japan between October 28 to 30, conveniently scheduled before
SIGGRAPH Asia 2015 in Japan.

This international event will be a unique opportunity for researchers,
developers, and users to share their experience and knowledge of virtual
reality, as well as augmented reality, mixed reality and 3D user
interfaces. And, of course, it is a good time to renew friendships, make
new ones, and experience Japan and their innovative researches in virtual


“How Does Human Interpret Images?”
— Week Points of Our Visual Systems Learned by Mathematical Study
of Optical Illusion —
Kokichi Sugihara
Professor and Vice President of the Meiji Institute for Advanced Study
of Mathematical Sciences, Meiji University, Japan

We usually feel that we can interpret images of three-dimensional
objects easily and correctly. From a mathematical point of view,
however, images do not contain depth information, and hence what we feel
we can interpret is nothing but just the result of guessing. Indeed, we
can easily cheat our brains by showing unusual objects that look
usual. In this talk, we show many examples of this kind of new optical
illusion including “impossible objects”, “impossible motions” and
“ambiguous cylinders”, obtained by our mathematical study of optical
illusion, and discuss about the advantages as well as dangers of our
visual systems.

“Shape of Things to Come”
Sriram Subramanian
Professor, School of Engineering & Informatics,
University of Sussex, UK

One of the visions on my research is to deliver novel experiences to
users without instrumenting them with wearable or head-mounted
displays. My team has been exploring various technical solutions to
creating systems that can deform and transform into new objects or
shapes while still supporting the display of visual content. For
example, we created shape-changing tablets that can show maps with
topographical information and morphing mirrors that can enable new forms
of augmentation. In this talk, I will present some of our recent
projects on this topic and conclude with the use of acoustic radiation
forces to create shape-shifting atoms.

“From Haptics to Empowerment Informatics”
Hiroo Iwata
Professor, Department of Intelligent Interaction Technologies,
University of Tsukuba, Japan

This talk introduces history of Iwata’s haptics research during a
quarter century. The research includes sense of touch and walking. His
activity expands to a new art form named “Device Art” in which interface
devices become essence of expression. In 2014, he launched the
Ph.D. program in Empowerment Informatics. Empowerment Informatics has
three pillars; supplementation, harmony and extension of human. Haptics
is a key technology in these areas. More over Device Art greatly
contribute to extension of human.

The famous Japanese phrase “sanshi suimei” describes Kyoto’s scenic
beauty; it is a uniquely Japanese phrase which simultaneously expresses
the beauty of the Higashiyama Mountains when they take on a purplish hue
and of the Kamogawa’s pure, clear water. FUNATSURU is where you can see
the scenery embodying this phrase. Here you can enjoy Kyoto’s many faces
throughout the four seasons, including cherry blossoms in spring, cool
riverside dinners and fire festivals in summer, and splendid autumn
foliage. Encounters with exquisitely dressed geisha are hardly
rare. FUNATSURU, a vestige of Kyoto’s past, lays just a five-minute taxi
ride away from JR Kyoto Station. It is located in the heart of Kyoto,
where numerous shrines and temples dot the area.
