5 November 2009 to 6 November 2009

9th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality 2009. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are exciting technologies that offer considerable potential benefits in all stages of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) process, from initial planning and conceptual design to facility management and operations. VR and AR allow people to see and interact with a building or infrastructure design and construction process prior to it being constructed.

This year the University of Sydney is planning to jointly host this conference in Australia together with University of Newcastle and FORUM8. The aim/mission of CONVR 2009 is to bring together researchers and practitioners in all areas of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industry to promote the exchange of ideas for applying Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. The objective of the conference is to report and disseminate ideas, progress, and products of innovative international research activities in this field and formulate strategies for future research directions.
