The ICAT-EGVE 2017 conference will be held November 22nd - 24th in
Adelaide, Australia. This is the merger of the 27th International
Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT 2017) and the 22nd
Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2017).
Together these are two of the oldest international conferences in the world
on Artificial Reality and Virtual Environments, and provide a unique
opportunity for researchers, developers, and users to share their
experience and knowledge of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality,
Mixed Reality and 3D User Interfaces. This is a great opportunity to renew
old friendships, make new ones, and experience all that Adelaide has to
Adelaide is one of the most beautiful cities in Australia located by
beautiful beaches on one side and expansive mountains and desert on the
other. Famous for its festivals, food and wine, Adelaide is an ideal place

the local wildlife parks, learn history in the fascinating local museums or
hike through breath-taking scenery.
