ISMAR 2013 Workshops: Call for Proposals

The 12th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality
October 1, 2013, University of South Australia, Australia
ISMAR 2013 provides a venue for Mixed and Augmented Reality research.
ISMAR 2013 workshops are a complementary forum to the main conference.

*** Aims ***
ISMAR workshops are interactive events involving participants. We
therefore ask workshop organizers foster attendee involvement, making
it a primary goal.

ISMAR encompasses multiple domains of research. We encourage workshop
organizer teams from multiple institutions to propose specific themes
from both, Science & Technology and Arts, Media, & Humanities tracks
to be explored in workshops. We particularly encourage the fostering
of topics or communities that do not have a “home† in other
venues. In order to extend the discussion of possible future topics
and trends, we also invite people from outside the Mixed and Augmented
Reality community to participate in ISMAR workshops.

ISMAR is interactive and inviting. Please feel free to discuss ideas
for a workshop proposal by email with the workshop chairs
([log in to unmask]) prior to submission. We aim for a
balanced workshop program avoiding overlapping themes and fostering

If you have an idea for a workshop you would like to see at ISMAR, and
would be willing to help organize, but haven't found a group, please
let us know! We are happy to both help find others to help, and
connect people with similar interests.

*** Formats ***
ISMAR workshops provide a platform for presentations of novel work,
work in progress and position papers. In order to ensure the quality
of workshops the presentations have to meet a certain level of
quality. Thus, we ask organizers to propose ways to ensure the quality
of presentations. This can be, for example, by peer reviewing or a
workshop program committee. Since the submission deadline for work in
progress presentations is scheduled after the main conference sends
out decisions, resubmissions of rejected ISMAR papers to workshops
will have to be submitted together with ISMAR reviews.

ISMAR workshops may also serve as a platform to actively experience
the insights of a variety of pervasive computing topics in seminars.
Since seminars aim for a maximum of interactivity, we ask organizers
of seminars to focus on proposals of how to involve attendances. This
can be for example, by organizing hands-on sessions or pro-contra
discussions of reading lists. Workshops may also be organized as a
combination of both, resulting in seminars with presentations of novel
work, work in progress or position statements.

All workshops should be planned as full day events and should not
schedule work in progress presentations only.

*** Submission Guidelines ***
To submit a proposal for a workshop, please send email to
[log in to unmask] with the subject “ISMAR 2013 workshop
proposal† and a PDF document containing
1.  Name of workshop
2.  Theme of the workshop and topics of interest and how these relate
to the overall conference
3.  Format of the workshop, example agenda, and how the agenda
reflects the format
4.  How the workshop seeks to encourage attendee interactivity
5.  Preliminary Call for Papers
6.  Names, affiliations, research interest, and a short bio (up to 200
words) of the organizers
7.  Brief description (up to 1 page) of research issues that the
workshop will address
8.  Reasons why the workshop is of interest to the conference participants
9.  Audience: expected number of participants, potential program
committee members

After sending your proposal to the aforementioned email address, you
should receive an acknowledgment of receipt.

Organizers are expected to be proactive in the field where they
propose a workshop. Potential workshop organizers should also note
that at least one workshop organizer is required to attend those
workshops they are organizing. Any change to the workshop organization
team must be submitted in writing at least two weeks prior to the
paper deadline. No changes to the workshop organization team can be
made after this date to ensure that potential participants submitting
position papers to workshops are aware of the final organization team.

*** Important Dates ***
Deadline for proposal submissions: March 24, 2013.
Notification of proposal decisions: April 8, 2013.

The following deadlines will apply to accepted workshops only. All
