Abstract

We are honored to welcome you to the 13th International Conference on Construction applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR 2013) organized by Teesside University. CONVR is one of the world-leading conferences in the areas of virtual reality, augmented reality and building information modeling. This year we are welcoming more than 110 participants from 23 countries to discuss and exchange the latest developments and applications of virtual technologies in the Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Operation industry. We have a group of leading keynote speakers from industry and academia who are covering up-to-date hot topics and are enthusiastic to share their knowledge with you. We received 120 papers and after a rigorous review and editing process, we selected 63 excellent papers to be presented in the parallel sessions, covering five thematic research topics: building information modeling, augmented reality and sensing, real-time visualization, simulation and planning. We are very grateful to our generous sponsors. Our golden sponsors are Autodesk; HOCHTIEF-ViCon; KBR,and Teesside University. Our silver sponsors are: Datum360; Makemedia; Niven Architects; Synchro Software, and the Journal of Engineering. You will have the opportunity to tour sponsor stands and interact with the companies. Traditionally CONVR participants have been very loyal to the conference over the past 13 editions. This year we are welcoming numerous first timers and we aim to help them make the most of the conference by introducing them to other participants. Finally our role on the committee is to identify and discuss with you the innovation, best practices, opportunities and challenges experienced by AECO practitioners and ensure that you leave the conference feeling knowledgeable, inspired and full of new ideas and with many new friends. We are confident that you will enjoy both the conference and the elegant and charming environment of London’s city center.
