Call for papers: Practical applications and experience in the use of virtual reality solutions
In 2007, when the ICIDO Summit will be taking place on 27/28 September, the event will be focusing on the practical application of virtual reality and visual decision processes in all its facets in daily life and work. Above all solutions are to be presented that focus on outstanding benefit, a surprising use or a particularly successful implementation of virtual reality in practice. It makes no difference whether this involves hardware, software or a combination of both.
Particular interest will therefore be devoted above all to contributions that de-scribe virtual reality and visual decision processes in all its practical relevance and which point out a benefit for an enterprise. However, we also intend to look beyond our own noses to establish where this issue already plays a role in the daily life of individuals.
The organiser will be choosing a selection of the submissions, which can be sent in informally to the following address by 31.7.2007.
All talks accepted will be published in a book and will be handed out free of charge to the ICIDO Summit participants.
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
