Call for Papers: Digital Twin for Industry 4.0

Frontiers in Virtual Reality has launched a new Research Topic, “Digital Twin for Industry 4.0”

Recent advances in both portable and wearable VR devices and the new challenges introduced by the fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0) further widen the applicability of VR to improve productivity and to enhance the user experience. The emergence of new technologies including Industry 4.0, has spawned a new generation of connected, robotic, and smart factories. With the digital revolution, the boundaries between the physical and digital world are shrinking, giving life to an interconnected 4.0 factory where employees, machines, and products closely interact.

This is a great opportunity to have your research published in Frontiers in Virtual Reality, a high visibility interdisciplinary journal. It publishes leading research across virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, regarding the latest technological developments and applications.


As a contributing author, you will benefit from:

– high visibility and the chance to be included in a downloadable eBook
– rigorous, transparent, and fast peer-review for your article
– publication throughout the year, as soon as your article is accepted
– advanced impact metrics
