Call for Papers

Note: The submission deadline has been extended to 19 March 2018 AoE.

Note: All submissions are made via the PCS system. Please see the Submission Guidelines for additional details.

ISMAR 2018, the premier conference for Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), will be held on October 16-20 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.

Important Deadlines

  • Submission: 19 March 2018 (all deadlines: 23:59 AoE) - Deadline has been extended!
  • Final notification: 8 June 2018
  • Camera-ready version: 10 July 2018

Submission Details

There is only one paper submission category, from 4 to 10 pages (excluding references). 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.

Detailed submission and review guidelines are available on the conference website and the Guidelines section. Poster submissions will be accepted as usual with a submission date to be announced later.
