Welcome to CONVR 2013

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend the 13th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR 2013). This year we are meeting in the heart of London at the Millennium Conference Centre.

CONVR is one of the world-leading conferences in the areas of virtual reality, augmented reality and building information modelling. Each year, more than 100 participants from all around the globe meet to discuss and exchange the latest developments and applications of virtual technologies in the architectural, engineering, construction and operation industry (AECO). The conference is also known for having a unique blend of participants from both academia and industry.

This year, we are carefully planning the conference to ensure that all participants have a perfect experience. We have a group of leading keynote speakers from industry and academia who are covering up to date hot topics and are enthusiastic and keen to share their knowledge with you. We are organising parallel sessions of thematic presentations and workshops. We are arranging a post-conference tour to the Olympic Park which is the new sporting complex constructed for the London 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics games. We are confident that you will enjoy both the conference and the elegant and charming environment of London’s city centre. CONVR participants are very loyal to the conference and have attended most of the editions over the last thirteen 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 bring and discuss the innovations, best practice, opportunities and challenges experienced by AECO practitioners to the fore, with the aim of ensuring all participants leave the conference feeling knowledgeable, inspired and full of new ideas and with many new friends! We look forward to seeing you in London in October, 2013.

Yours faithfully,

Prof. Nashwan Dawood
Chair, CONVR2013

Dr. Mohamad Kassem
