Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
This conference was made possible through the tireless efforts of numerous volunteers. Our organizational team is in total 60 members. 90 individuals served on the International Program Committee and International Conference Paper Committee, where many of them served on both committees which resulted in weeks of reviewing numerous papers. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all who served on the VR 2018 organizing committees, steering committee, and international program committees, as well as to all reviewers of the program content. In particular, we would like to recognize the Paper Program Chairs: Kiyoshi Kiyokawa, Frank Steinicke, Bruce Thomas, Greg Welch and the Conference Paper Program Chairs: Robert J. Teather, Maud Marchal and Takuji Narumi who had an extremely challenging task of managing the large number of submissions and selecting this year’s papers. The smooth operation of the conference is made possible with the assistance of over 30 student volunteers; we commend them for their efforts. We would like to express a very special thank you to Meghan Haley for coordinating the paper publishing process, digital content and preparing the program as well as to Michelle Ocampo who served as our Conference Planner from IEEE Computer Society. We are happy to have a cooperation with the German Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE ITG) and specifically grateful to Christian Gross, Gueorgui Markov, and Hatice Altintas for their support and excellence in event management. A special thank you to Beate Fülle and Stephanie Bertenbreiter for their expertise in conference management, press relations, and overall efforts as local arrangement chairs. Finally, a special thank you to steering committee member Bernd Fröhlich who provided crucial support and advice with regard to organizing this conference in Germany. We would also like to acknowledge the support from IEEE, the IEEE Computer Society, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering, and our sponsors. Finally, we are grateful to everyone who is attending and actively participating in the conference. We hope that you will find VR 2018 to be engaging, insightful, informative, and, last but not least a fun conference for all!
