Welcome to ISMAR 2013!

Science & Technology

In recent years, Mixed and Augmented Reality has been expanding from an exciting research field into a commercially viable technology. The field is highly interdisciplinary, combining work in diverse disciplines, ranging from human centered research into user interfaces, interaction techniques, education, design, human factors, wearable computing and mobile computing, through more technology oriented research including computer graphics, display technology, computer vision, sensors, signal processing and computer networking. The growing interest in M&AR applications is creating new challenges for research in all of these areas.

We invite papers, posters, workshops, panels, tutorials submissions in the general field of Mixed and Augmented Reality.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, MR/AR aspects of:
  • Sensors
    • Acquisition of 3D scene descriptions
    • Calibration methods
    • Position and orientation tracking technology
    • Sensor fusion
    • Vision-based registration and tracking
  • Information presentation
    • Aural, haptic and olfactory augmentation
    • Display and view management
    • Mediated and diminished reality
    • Object overlay and spatial layout techniques
