ISMAR 2016, the premier conference for Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), will be held in beautiful Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.
ISMAR is responding to the recent explosion of commercial and research activities related to AR, MR, and Virtual Reality (VR) by continuing the expansion of its scope over the past several years. ISMAR 2016 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 fundamental areas such as Computer Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology, Computer Vision, and Optics, and how these areas contribute to advancing AR / VR / MR technology.
This year, we continue to have an open call for selecting Program Committee members, in the hope that this further increases transparency and widens scope.
There is only one paper submission category, from 4 to 10 pages. Papers ready for journal publication will be directly published in a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG). Other accepted papers will be published in the ISMAR proceedings. Paper quality versus length will be assessed according to a contribution-per-page judgment.
- All accepted papers will be orally presented at the ISMAR conference.
- All accepted papers will have the opportunity to be presented as a demo.
- All accepted papers will have the opportunity to be presented as a poster.
- All accepted papers will be archived in the IEEE Xplore digital library.
Poster submissions will be accepted as usual with a submission date to be announced later.
