Call for Papers: Virtual Reality in Practice
ICIDO Summit 2008 – Ideas with a vision
Over the past few years, the ICIDO Summit has emerged as one of the major events dealing with application-oriented virtual reality (VR) in Europe. Its aim is to promote the dissemination of VR technologies in everyday company life, tap new implementation fields and develop marketable ideas. With the slogan “Get together. Eye and decide.” this year’s conference focuses mainly on virtual cooperation. ICIDO has already been able to line up a host of speakers from all over Europe for the event, including Joe Barkai of IDC as keynote speaker.
ICIDO also invites all users from scientific and practice-oriented fields to contribute lectures to the congress programme. Solutions and new ideas characterised by a high degree of innovative content, originality, outstanding benefit and particularly successful implementation are sought. The contributions submitted can be from the hardware, software or combination of the two sectors.
ICIDO will accept proposals up to 15 August. These should be sent, without form, to the following address: ICIDO GmbH, Sebastian Grimm, Jurastraße 8, 70565 Stuttgart
The organiser is responsible for the selection of contributions. The presented lectures will be published in a conference volume and supplied to congress attendees free of charge.
A 500 sqm exhibition area is available to companies wishing to present their products and services to event visitors. Contact person for the hiring of exhibition space is Sebastian Grimm.

ESI Engineering System International GmbH
The ICIDO Group (ICIDO GmbH, fleXilution GmbH, with branches in Japan and the USA) is a leading provider of interactive, visual decision-making systems. ICIDO solutions are simple and standardised and can be integrated in existing structures and processes with ease. When using the Visual Decision Platform (VDP) technology, customers derive benefits from an improved possibility of assessing and evaluating three-dimensional computer data in product development and in the simplification and acceleration of coordination processes in interdisci-plinary teams. Errors can be detected early on, optimum solutions can be determined better and the creation of physical prototypes can be reduced. This results in considerable cost savings, reduced development times and quality enhancements. Areas of application range across the entire product creation process from design/styling, engineering design, assembly and production planning to marketing and sales. Customers receive a complete solution from ICIDO consisting of software and services and also the necessary hardware, for example a power wall system. ICIDO customers are to be found in the automotive industry (Daimler-Chrysler, BMW, Ford, Bosch, Faurecia), in the transportation sector (Siemens Transportation Systems, MTU, Rheinmetall, Airbus), machine and system construction (Trumpf, Festo, IWKA and Siemens Power Generation) and in research and teaching (FH Esslingen, FH Pforzheim, TU Chemnitz, TU Munich, BA Mosbach), for example
