17th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR)
in Munich (Germany)
October 16-20, 2018
ISMAR 2018, the premier conference for Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), will be held in Munich, Germany.
ISMAR is responding to the recent explosion of commercial and research activities related to AR and MR and Virtual Reality (VR) by continuing the expansion of its scope over the past several years. ISMAR 2018 will cover the full range of technologies encompassed by the MR continuum, from interfaces in the real world to fully immersive experiences. This range goes far beyond the traditional definition of AR, which focused on precise 3D tracking, visual display, and real-time performance.
We specifically invite contributions from areas such as Computer Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology, Computer Vision, Optics, and in particular VR, and how these areas contribute to advancing AR / MR / VR technology. The poster session is a fix-point of ISMAR, where the community engages in a discussion about the benefits and challenges of AR in other research and application domains.
This year, we will continue with the previously introduced format for Poster papers allowing for more space. Poster papers will be reviewed on the basis of an extended abstract, which can now be 2-6 pages long and contain smaller contributions or work-in-progress. The page limit also includes the list of references.
Please note that ISMAR does not consider a poster paper of up to 2-pages to be an archival publication. Therefore submitting work in a 2-page poster format does not preclude later submitting the same work in the form of a full paper. And to clarify, poster papers with more than 2 pages will need further scrutiny by ISMAR reviewers to check for added value when submitted as a full paper in later years. ISMAR reviewers are committed to maintaining and enforcing these reviewing principles.
Accepted Poster Papers will be published in the adjunct proceedings of IEEE ISMAR 2018 and will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library. Poster paper presentation sessions will be organized at the conference. At least one of the authors must register and attend the conference to present the poster.
Poster Submission: 29th June, 23:59 AoE (Anywhere on Earth)
Notification for Posters: 23th July
Camera-ready copy: 10th August
Posters papers must follow the « Conference Proceedings » format for which templates (TEX, DOC) are available from the submission guidelines.
All materials must be submitted electronically through the Precision Conference website at: PCS
Topics of Interest
