CFP: ISMAR 2012 - The 11th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality

  • Deadline:
    May 25, 2012, 11:59 p.m.
  • Location:
    Atlanta, Georgia, US

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. The field is highly interdisciplinary, and MR/AR concepts are applicable to a wide range of applications. Since 1998, ISMAR and its forerunner events, IWAR/ISAR and ISMR, have been the premier forums in this vital field.

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. We invite you all to participate in this great event for the exchange of new ideas in this
exciting field!
