Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) allow the creation of 
fascinating new types of user interfaces, and are beginning to show 
significant impact on industry and society. The field is highly 
interdisciplinary, bringing together computer vision, computer graphics, 
user interfaces, human factors, wearable computing, mobile computing, 
computer networks, displays, sensors, to name just some of the most 
important influences.

Since 1999, ISMAR is the premier forum in this vital field. This year we 
are proud to present the 5th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on 
Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2006). The symposium will be held on 
Oct. 22-25, 2006, in sunny Santa Barbara, California, USA. We invite you 
all to participate in this great event for the exchange of new ideas in 
this exciting field!


ISMAR05 invites submissions in the general field of Mixed and Augmented 
Topics include, but are not limited to:

MR/AR applications
* personal MR/AR information systems
* industrial and military MR/AR applications
* medical MR/AR applications
* MR/AR for entertainment
* MR/AR for architecture
* MR/AR for art, cultural heritage, or education and training

* position and orientation tracking technology
* calibration methods
* sensor fusion
* vision-based registration and tracking
* acquisition of 3D scene descriptions

System architecture
* wearable and mobile computing
* distributed and collaborative MR/AR
* display hardware
* performance issues (real-time approaches)

User interaction
* interaction techniques for MR/AR
* collaborative MR/AR
* multimodal input and output

Information presentation
* real-time rendering
* photorealistic rendering
* object overlay and spatial layout techniques
* aural, haptic and olfactory augmentation
* mediated and diminished reality
* display and view management

Human factors
* usability studies and experiments
* acceptance of MR/AR technology
* social implications

*** Paper Submissions ***

ISMAR is a high-quality conference with a competitive submission 
process. In 2005, ISMAR accepted 22% of the papers submitted based on a 
rigorous reviewing procedure with at least 4 independent experts 
providing reviews, and a final decision made in a two-day committee 

For this year, we will accept the following categories of submissions:

- Full-length papers are up to 10 pages long and are held to rigorous 
standards of contribution and evaluation.

- Short papers are up to 4 pages in length and are reviewed through the 
same process, but the expected amount of contribution is less due to the 
shorter format. Typical examples are a small but neat technical 
contribution or an application case study.

- Posters: Contributions are submitted as an extended abstract of up to 
2 pages in length

Accepted full-length and short papers will be presented at the 
conference. The allotted presentation time will depend upon the length 
and content of the paper. Accepted papers and poster abstracts will be 
published in the proceedings. Previously published work may not be 
submitted, nor may the work be concurrently submitted to any other 
conference or journal. Such papers will be rejected without review. 
Reviews will be single blind (i.e., include authorship information with 
the submitted paper.) Papers must be in English.

Authors may include supplementary materials (such as a video) with the 
submission, and such materials are highly encouraged if they provide 
evidence of the claimed contribution. The submission should include all 
information necessary to evaluate the paper and must not ask reviewers 
to go to web sites or other external information sources, since that may 
jeopardize the anonymity of the reviewers.

Hope to see you in Santa Barbara!
