As augmented reality (AR) technologies become more pervasive, there is a growing interest in Social AR systems designed to support face-to-face interactions. We define Social AR as the use of AR technology to initiate, support, encourage, or mediate in-person interactions of two or more people. This technology typically involves digitally augmenting or transforming what people see or hear. However, little is known about how Social AR technologies shape and affect social interactions in face-to-face settings. At this early juncture, it is crucial to reflect and discuss the ethical, political, societal, and privacy implications of Social AR. This workshop to be held at the Conference of Computer-Supported Collaborative Work and Social Computing (CSCW 2020)<https://cscw.acm.org/2020/> aims to bring together industry practitioners and academic researchers to discuss the opportunities and challenges of Social AR.

We invite participants to submit contributions in a form that they see fit describing the ideas and future vision of Social AR that they are excited about. Please visit our website for more information: https://futuresocialar.com/.
