ISMAR 2012On November 5 – 8, 2012, the Augmented Reality gathering of the year will take place in Atlanta, GA, USA. The 11th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) will again consist of two different programs for papers/posters, the Science and Technology Program (S&T) and the Arts, Media and Humanities (AMH). We would like to encourage all Augmented Reality enthusiasts, in particular those having a medical background, to present their newest gadgets at ISMAR 2012.

On behalf of Raphael Grasset, ISMAR 2012 Communication Chair, we would like to attract your attention to the Call for Participation:


ISMAR 2012
Call for Participation
The 11th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality
Nov 5 – 8, 2012, Georgia Tech, Atlanta, USA


The fields of Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) seek to interactively mix virtual media with a person’s perception of the physical world around them.  Whether interactively combining physical and virtual objects and environments in 3D, or reacting to location or other aspects of a users context, these paradigms enable fascinating new types of user interfaces, and are beginning to show significant impact on industry and society.

This year we are proud to present the 11th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2012). The symposium will be held on Nov. 5 – 8, 2012 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, USA.

ISMAR 2012 now invites contributions to a range of categories:

  • Papers and Posters to the Science & Technology (S&T) program
  • Papers and Posters to the Arts, Media and Humanities (AMH) program
  • Innovation Workshops
  • Informative Tutorials
  • Demonstrations
  • Art Exhibits
  • Tracking Competition

Science and Technology Program:

The field of Mixed and Augmented Reality is highly interdisciplinary, ranging from human centered research into user interfaces, interaction techniques, education, design, human factors, wearable computing and mobile computing, through to more technology oriented research including computer graphics, display technology, computer vision, sensors, signal processing and computer networking. We invite contributions in all categories relating to, but not limited to, MR/AR aspects of:

  • Sensors
  • Information presentation
  • User interaction
  • System architecture
  • Human factors
  • MR/AR Applications

Arts, Media & Humanities Program:

The 2012 ISMAR Arts, Media and Humanities (AMH) program invites artists, designers, and scholars to explore the potential of Mixed and Augmented Reality.  Artists and designers are invited to present and contextualize creative work in MR or AR media forms and to reflect on the place of  these technologies in various fields of art and design. Scholars are invited to present work that analyzes or critiques AR/MR in the contexts of current social forms or the history of art and media. We invite contributions in all categories in relation to, but not limited to:

  • Media art, Performing arts, Art History, Architecture, Urban design, Game and toys, Cultural Heritage, Social media
