Dear colleagues,

Excuses for cross posting. We would like to direct your attention to  
the Special Track at i-Know on Augmented Reality, "From visual  
assistants to always-on multimodal knowledge access" which will be  
held at Graz, Austria, 21-23 October 2015.

Please redistribute this announcement to those who might be interested.

Best Regards,

Eduardo Veas

*** Special Track @i-Know on Augmented Reality, From visual assistants  
to always-on multimodal knowledge access

*** 15th International Conference on  Knowledge Technologies and  
Data-driven Business

*** 21-23 October 2015, Graz, Austria





== ABSTRACT June 8, 2015

==  PAPER June 22, 2015

==  I-KNOW proceedings will be published by ACM ICPS



Technological innovations continuously transform the way we reach for  
and use knowledge.
With augmented reality (AR), interfaces are associated with physical
objects and the physical world turns into a user interface, which  
results in extended
possibilities to naturally interact with complex systems. This  
workshop concentrates on
how novel presentation metaphors in AR change the way we experience digital
augmentations in the context of the real world for a more immersive,  
human acceptable
experience. The goal is to explore novel techniques that make the  
perception of AR a
more human experience, that foster continuous use without hindering  
the activities of
the user, that put knowledge within reach, so that users, while  
accessing, gathering,
consuming digital knowledge, are not required to interrupt their activities.


We invite work in progress and contributions in the field of Augmented  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, MR/AR aspects of:

? Augmented Reality visualization metaphors in practice

? Interfaces and display devices that transform our perception of  
Augmented Reality

? Multimodal experiences of augmentation (auditory, olfactory, haptics)

? Studies and evaluations of long term use of Augmented Reality

? Usability evaluations of Augmented Reality applications and technology

? Information filtering for Augmented Reality

? Information presentation and layout in Augmented Reality

? Cognition and perception in Augmented Reality

? System architectures

? Sensors and live data acquisition

? MR/AR applications

This special track will increase awareness of the state-of-the art in  
augmented reality as
an interface that can be used continuously, as well as open new  
avenues of research in
multimodal interfaces for a more immersive AR experience.

Participation is open to all attendees registering for i-Know, not  
only to presenters of
papers. We explicitly invite non-research attendees to join us as well  
to provide valuable
insight into commercial areas of interest and constraints.
