WORKSHOP ON AUGMENTED REALITY FOR GOOD (http://ar4good.org/ <http://ar4good.org/>) @ IEEE ISMAR 2017, France

Augmented Reality (AR) has started to become mainstream with some major corporations releasing consumer products. 
With the AR research and technological advances, it is now possible to use AR in almost all domains and places. 
This provides a bigger opportunity to create applications that intend to impact society in greater ways than beyond just entertainment. 
Today the world is facing different challenges including, but not limited to, in health, the environment, and education. 
Now is the time to explore how AR could be used to solve widespread societal challenges.

We invite application and position papers (2-4 pages, excluding references), that address the way that AR can solve real-world problems in various application domains including, but not limited to, health, the environment, education, sports, the arts, and applications in support of special needs such as assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative applications. 
Our focus and preference will be on applications that are beyond general uses of AR; we seek submissions describing work with specific goals and methods aimed at improving the lives of individuals, communities, or society.

This workshop will bring together researchers, developers, and industry partners in presenting and promoting research that intends to solve a real world problem using AR. 
It will provide a platform to discuss challenges and opportunities to use AR for helping the mankind and society in more impactful ways. 
This will help grow a research community to create AR for Good.

All accepted papers will be included in the Extended Proceedings of the IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality 2017. 
Authors should follow the Latex or Word templates as suggested by the IEEE ISMAR conference.
All papers must be submitted through the EasyChair submission site.
