Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend the 18th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR2018). This time we are meeting in New Zealand at the University of Auckland’s flagship Science 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.

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 Auckland.
