Extended Call for Papers – June 14th, 2013

6TH International Conference on Advanced Research in Virtual and Rapid Prototyping


October 1 to 5 | 2013

Leiria | Portugal




The International Conference on Advanced Research in Virtual and Rapid Prototyping (VRAP), organised every two years since 2003, is designed to be a major forum for the scientific exchange of multi-disciplinary and inter-organisational aspects of virtual and physical prototyping and related areas.


VRAP 2013 International Conference will be held at Leiria, from October 1 to 5, 2013. Leiria is a beautiful city with a striking royal castle, built in 1135 by the first king of Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques, and it was the setting of several cortes (feudal parliaments). The historical city centre spreads along the castle hill and the river Lis. The city of Leiria is located near the western coast, in the central region of Portugal, with a Mediterranean climate and oceanic influence. In the 20th century, its strategic position in the Portuguese territory favoured the development of a diversified industry.The wood from Leiria surrounding pine tree forests were used to build the ships used in the Portuguese Navigations in the 15th and 16th centuries. 


The Conference carries out a full paper submission and a rigorous peer review of all papers. Accepted papers will be included in a Proceedings book with ISBN registration, published by Taylor & Francis.
