Dear Colleagues,


We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the 18th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality, CONVR 2018 ( to be held in Auckland, New Zealand between 21st to 23rd November 2018.


CONVR is one of the world-leading conferences in the areas of virtual reality, augmented reality and building information modelling. CONVR brings together researchers and practitioners from the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry to enhance the exchange of concepts and methods for the application of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The aim of the conference is to report on ideas, improvements, and applications of innovative international research activities and on strategies for the future development of research perspectives. 


CONVR is an exciting international event and we expect to bring more than 100 delegates from all over the world.
