The 23rd International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR 2023) will be held in Florence, Italy from 13th to 16th November 2023. The event will be hosted by the University of Florence at the Department of Architecture and will be opened in the unique heritage and historical venue of Palazzo Vecchio, Salone dei Cinquecento.
The organizing committee would like to welcome scholars and practitioners from around the globe to present and discuss the latest research and development ideas in the field of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Building Information Modelling (BIM). CONVR 2023 will provide a unique opportunity to discuss future strategies and directions of research and development in this exciting field with renowned researchers and practitioners.
CONVR 2023 will bring together AEC researchers and practitioners from around the globe to report on and exchange the latest development, ideas and applications stemming from innovative research activities in the area of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Building Information Modeling. The objective of the conference is to report on ideas, improvements, and applications of innovative international research activities in the VR, AR, and BIM fields and discuss strategies for the future development of research perspectives in these fields.
The International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality was initiated by Prof. Nashwan Dawood. The first CONVR was held in Teesside (UK) in 2000.
The conference focuses on the fields of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) which are forward-looking technologies that enable considerable benefits in all stages of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) process, from initial planning and conceptual design to facility management and operations. Over the last 22 years CONVR has been held all around the globe and sponsored by major software and engineering companies.
