=== Call for Program Committee Volunteers for ISMAR 2015 ===
The Program Co-Chairs for the IEEE International Symposium on Mixed
and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) 2015 invite applications for volunteers
to serve on the 15-person Program Committee (PC). This is the first
year we are trying this open call, as we hope it will lead to better
coverage of areas of ISMAR work, a more-inclusive community, and
increased transparency of the review process. Any comments or
suggestions are welcome!

A position on the PC is one of great importance and responsibility.
Members are responsible for handling the review of the papers that are
assigned to them and deciding, in conjunction with the Program Chairs,
which papers will be accepted. A member of the PC exerts significant
influence over the review process, both in the choice of reviewers and
in writing the meta-review and comments. Each member can also provide
opinions and vote on other papers at the PC meeting. Thus, the PC has
a strong influence over the final program, much more so than an
ordinary reviewer.

=== How To Apply ===
Please send the following brief set of materials by 15 December 2014
to [log in to unmask]:
• Your name, affiliation, and job title.
• Your main area(s) of AR focus. Please be succinct with your list.
• Any prior reviewing work you have done for conferences and/or journals.

Please use the subject line: “ISMAR PC Volunteer Application” when
submitting your materials.

=== Details about the PC Commitment ===
A successful candidate must commit to the following:
• Handling approximately 12 papers.
• Assigning reviewers to these papers (25 March) and making certain
those reviews get done (30 April).
• Reading (but not fully reviewing) each paper/poster assigned to you.
• Leading a web-based discussion with your reviewers on submissions
with rebuttals.
• Writing a meta-review for each paper you are assigned (a summary of
the reviews plus your own opinion, generally a few paragraphs long).
• Attending the PC meeting (22-23 May). Because of the wide geographic
distribution of PC members, we will hold a global distributed meeting
at three sites: in the USA, Japan, and the UK. PC members must travel
to one of these sites.
• Updating your meta-reviews (30 May), based on the discussions and
decisions at the PC meeting.
• Shepherding conditionally accepted papers and making sure that the
requested revisions are performed in a satisfactory manner (1 July).
• All PC members are expected to attend ISMAR 2015 in Fukuoka, Japan
(29 September-3 October); however, exceptions can be granted for
special circumstances.

Travel costs to the local PC meeting will be covered up to a maximum
of USD 1,500. We will help to coordinate travel and accommodations
with you in order to keep costs as low as possible.

If you (or anyone in your organization) submit a paper to ISMAR 2015,
you will not be assigned such papers and you will have to leave the
room at the PC meeting during the discussion of any such paper. This
is to avoid conflict of interest problems.

Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to your
participation in ISMAR!
