=============== ISMAR 2018 | CALL FOR PAPERS ================
ISMAR 2018
17th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR)
in Munich (Germany)

October 16-20, 2018

ISMAR 2018, the premier conference for Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed
Reality (MR), will be held in Munich, Germany.

ISMAR is responding to the recent explosion of commercial and research
activities related to AR and MR and Virtual Reality (VR) by continuing the
expansion of its scope over the past several years. ISMAR 2018 will cover
the full range of technologies encompassed by the MR continuum, from
interfaces in the real world to fully immersive experiences. This range
goes far beyond the traditional definition of AR, which focused on precise
3D tracking, visual display, and real-time performance.

We specifically invite contributions from areas such as Computer Graphics,
Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology, Computer Vision, Optics, and in
particular VR, and how these areas contribute to advancing AR / MR / VR

**Important Deadlines**

- Submission: 15 March 2018 (all deadlines: 23:59 AoE)
- Final notification: 8 June 2018
- Camera-ready version: 10 July 2018

**Submission Details**
There is only one paper submission category, from 4 to 10 pages (excluding
references).  Papers ready for journal publication will be directly
published in a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and
Computer Graphics (TVCG). Other accepted papers will be published in the
ISMAR proceedings. Paper quality versus length will be assessed according
to a contribution-per-page judgment.

- All accepted papers will be orally presented at the ISMAR conference.
- All accepted papers will have the opportunity to be presented as a demo.
- All accepted papers will have the opportunity to be presented as a poster.
- All accepted papers will be archived in the IEEE Xplore digital library.

Detailed submission and review guidelines are available on the conference
website ( and the Guidelines section.
Link to submission system:
Paper Submission System (Precision Conference) will become active on March

Poster submissions will be accepted as usual with a submission date to be
announced later.
