Title: Classifying the AR Presentation Space
Workshop Date: Monday, November 5, 2012
Paper Submission deadline: Tuesday, June 26, 2012
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Abstract ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Already 3D visualization environments provide a large design space not
being investigated to the same extent as traditional WIMP-spaces. When
using this design space in combination with AR, the design space even
further grows. Information can not only be presented in a 3D space, AR
also puts virtual information in relation to real objects, locations or
events. The different properties of presentation in AR need to be
investigated to develop a comprehensive set of dimensions of
To know about different presentation principles is, for instance,
crucial when conducting user studies. To eliminate confounding factors
and to determine where effects attribute to, a deeper insight is
required. As only one factor may be changed at a time to determine the
effects of such factors, awareness about those principles is necessary.
This way, fundamental experiences about the impact of AR onto human
behavior can be achieved.
With such a classification at hand, the vast presentation space can be
explored in a new way. New combinations of presentation principles,
that might not have been imagined yet, gain potential for further
This workshop aims at bringing together researchers working towards
such a classification of the AR presentation space. The workshop at the
beginning provides a plenum to present approaches used for the
collection of different properties of the AR presentation space and
their integration into different dimensions of underlying principles.
The workshop then provides a forum for plenary discussion (and perhaps
smaller focus groups) to collect existing classifications. Here, the
plenum or subgroups (depending on number of participants) step into
discussion to compare classifications and to explore how they differ.
This shall lead to an understanding of what has not yet been covered by
existing classifications, or has been covered only inadequately.
Finally, modifications and extensions to existing classifications, and
entirely new ones, shall be proposed and collected in an open format.
Admission to the workshop will be based on accepted papers and position
statements. Further admissions will be granted on a first come first
serve basis (up to 30 people).
++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Scope and Topics ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
We solicit contribution in two ways:
First, high quality research and position papers that address any
issues that can be related to classifications, design, application and
evaluation of AR systems w.r.t. application towards identifying general
underlying presentation principles. The specific topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
- Concepts for determination and classification of the AR design space
- Lessons learned and experiences for design constraints obtained
from designing, developing, deploying or evaluating AR systems
- Case studies, human factors, evaluation methods and metrics
identifying presentation principles
- Design principles
- Surveys and taxonomies
Second, the willingness to participate in discussions and to share
ideas, experiences, knowledge and concepts.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Important Dates ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Deadline for submissions: June 26, 2012
Notification of acceptance: July 27, 2012
Camera ready: August 17, 2012
Workshop: November 5, 2011
++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Submissions ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
We will accept either research papers containing unpublished results,
or position papers outlining the author's relevant experience and ideas
that may contribute to the discussion during the workshop. Submitted
papers will be peer-reviewed (single blind).
Authors submitting papers and attending the workshop (expected by
submission of paper) shall be aware that there will be plenary
discussions at the end of the workshop.
All submissions should be sent as PDF documents to the workshop
contacts listed below.
You are very welcome to contact us directly to discuss your intention
to attend the workshop and your plans to submit a paper.
++++++++++++++++++++++++ Author Instructions ++++++++++++++++++++++++
* Register to attend the workshop (see registration fee and deadlines
on ISMAR registration page [link]).
* Submission for review: position statement papers 2 to 4 pages,
research papers of 4 to 8 pages length must be prepared according to the
VGTC style. Templates can be found here:
* Camera-ready version preparation
- After notification of acceptance, authors have approximately
three weeks to prepare a camera-ready version of their paper.
- When submitting the camera-ready version, authors are requested
to indicate a) whether they would like to have a hard-copy of the
workshop materials and b) whether they allow to releasing their paper
on the workshop webpage.
++++++++++++++++++++++++ Proceedings ++++++++++++++++++++++++
There will be no printed (published) proceedings. Copies can be made
and distributed for use during the workshop. If allowed by the
authors, we will put the papers on the workshop webpage. All workshop
materials will be included on the conference stick.
