ISMAR 2011

Call for Papers and Participation

The Tenth IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality

Oct. 26-29, 2011, Basel, Switzerland

The fields  of Mixed Reality (MR)  and  Augmented Reality (AR) seek to interactively  combine real  and virtual  objects and  environments in 3D.  The  basic  paradigm   enables  fascinating  new  types  of  user interfaces, and  is beginning to  show significant impact  on industry and society. The field is highly interdisciplinary, and MR/AR concepts are applicable to a wide range of applications.

This  year  we  are  proud  to present  the  2011  IEEE  International Symposium on  Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR  2011). The symposium will  be  held  on  Oct  26ˆ29,  2011 at  Congress  Center  in  Basel, Switzerland. We invite you all  to participate in this great event for the exchange  of new ideas in  this exciting field!  ISMAR now invites contributions in two programs:  the Science & Technology (S&T) program and a complementary Arts, Media and Humanities (AMH) program.

* Science and Technology Track *

In recent  years, MR/AR has  been expanding from an  exciting research proposition into a publicly-acknowledged technology.

The field  is highly interdisciplinary, combining  work in disciplines such as  signal processing,  computer vision, computer  graphics, user interfaces,  human  factors,  wearable  computing,  mobile  computing, computer  networks, displays,  and  sensors. The  growing interest  in MR/AR applications is  creating new challenges for research  in all of these areas.

We  invite submissions  in the  general field  of Mixed  and Augmented Reality. Topics  of interest  include, but are  not limited  to, MR/AR aspects of:

  • Sensing;
  • Modeling;
  • Information presentation;
  • Interaction;
  • Human factors;
  • System architectures;
  • Displays;
  • MR/AR applications.

* Arts, Media & Humanities Track *

The  2011 ISMAR  Arts,  Media and  Humanities  chairs invite  artists, designers,  architects,   urbanists,  and  scholars   to  explore  the potential  of  Mixed and  Augmented  Reality  within their  respective fields.   We  welcome artifacts,  musings,  probings, discourses,  and insights to be presented at ISMAR 2011 in the form of papers, posters, art   exhibits  and  performances,   panels,  workshops,   demos,  and tutorials.

Topics  of interest  include, but  are not  limited to,  case studies, deployments,  prototypes,  and  evaluations  of  Mixed  and  Augmented Reality in:

  • Art;
  • Media art;
  • Performing arts;
  • Architecture;
  • Urban design;
  • Cultural heritage;
  • Game design;
  • Toys;
  • Social media;
  • Transhumanism;
  • Design research;
  • Product design;
  • Advertising and marketing.

Submission Categories

The following are  the categories of solicited types  of work for both tracks. For detailed submission and formatting instructions, visit the website at http://www.ismar11.org

* Papers and Posters (S&T and AMH)

Regular written papers and  posters are solicited. All accepted papers and posters will  be published in the proceedings.  Papers must have a minimum  of four pages  and maximum  of ten  pages, while  posters are limited  to two  pages.

Note,  that  there is  only  one category  for  papers  –there is  no distinction  between  full  and   short  papers.  The acceptance  for publication will be  partly based on the contribution  per page of the paper. For example, a paper in six pages will be expected to have more contribution than one with four pages.

Material simultaneously  submitted to ISMAR and another  venue will be rejected without review. Please see the web site for full details.

* Innovation Workshops

ISMAR  2011  will  have a  series  of  workshops  the day  before  the conference  to cover the  innovative applications  of MR/AR  and newly emerging areas  of MR/AR. We  invite you to submit  workshop proposals with pioneering research and fresh application areas.

* Informative Tutorials

The purpose of  the tutorials is to expand the  knowledge of the MR/AR community.  Topics can range  from introductory  for MR/AR  novices to highly technical for MR/AR researchers. We invite individuals or teams interested in presenting such a tutorial to submit proposals.

* S&T Demonstrations

ISMAR  2011 provides  exhibition space  for showing  demonstrations of MR/AR to  the community.  These  demonstrations can take the  shape of live, interactive demos, lab/corporate exhibitions, or both.

* Art Exhibits

ISMAR 2011 is  soliciting new art that exploits MR/AR  as a medium. We encourage artists  to provide proposals for works  implemented with AR technologies, as well as for works based on mixed reality concepts.

Selected work  will be shown  in the electronic arts  festival, Shift, which  hosts a traditional  exhibition environment.  Presentations and panel discussions for  invited artists will be held  at the conference center.

* Tracking Competition & AMH Contests

The first Tracking Competition  at ISMAR‚08 caught much attention. For ISMAR  2011, we  will complement  this  contest with  design and  game contests. Details  regarding the contests (rules, dates)  will be made available on the ISMAR conference website in June.
