Call for Papers and Participation
The Tenth IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality
Oct. 26-29, 2011, Basel, Switzerland
[pdf version: http://ismar11.org/ismar2011_data/docs/CFP_ISMAR_2011.pdf]
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 26é─ý29, 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
We invite submissions in the general field of Mixed and Augmented
Reality. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, MR/AR
- Information presentation;
- Human factors;
- System architectures;
- 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
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, case studies,
deployments, prototypes, and evaluations of Mixed and Augmented
- Media art;
- Performing arts;
- Urban design;
- Cultural heritage;
- Game design;
- Social media;
- Design research;
- Product design;
- Advertising and marketing.
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
* Tracking Competition & AMH Contests
The first Tracking Competition at ISMARé─˘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.
