in submission to other venues concurrently. Any dual submissions will be
rejected outright without review.

For each accepted paper a registration at the conference is needed and at
least one of the authors is required to present their paper at the
conference for the paper to be included in the proceedings.

The International Conference on Artificial Reality and Telexistence (ICAT
2018) and the Eurographics Symposium on Virtual Environments (EGVE 2018) 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. ICAT-EGVE 2018 is a great opportunity to renew old friendships,
make new ones, and experience all that Cyprus has to offer.

Limassol, a city counting centuries of history, is located between two of
the most renowned ancient kingdoms of the island, Amathus at the east and
Kourion at the west. "Lemessos" as it is called by locals, is one of the
fastest growing modern metropolises in Europe, with the most distinct
project being the Limassol Marina. The beautiful coastline now covers a 15
kilometers distance, lined with hotels and beach bars and cafes,
interspersed with eucalyptus groves and linked by a promenade popular with
walkers and joggers. For more information see here
<http://icat-egve2018.rise.org.cy/about-limassol/>. ICAT-EGVE 2018 is
organized by the newly established RISE-Research Center on Interactive
media, Smart systems and Emerging technologies which aims to become a
Center of Excellence and a hub across the three continents bordering
Cyprus, facilitating thus the local scientific, technological, and economic
growth of the region. More information about the center can be found here
