IEEE ISMAR 2018 - Call for Workshops

IEEE ISMAR 2018
*ISMAR 2018 - CALL FOR WORKSHOPS*

The ISMAR 2018 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be
held in the ISMAR 2018 main conference. The workshops will be held on 16th
and 20th October 2018, in Munich, Germany.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with the
opportunity to present and discuss research ideas on cutting-edge research
topics related to Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality as Science &
Technology and Arts, Media, & Humanities. We encourage researchers from
different academic communities as well as from industry and public
institutions to bring together and to collaborate and discuss with each
other about possible future topics and trends.

The scope of the proposals should be consistent with the main conference
topics. Please visit the conference website (https://ismar2018.org).

*Important Dates*

The deadline for workshop proposal submissions is May 2nd, 2018,
notifications will be sent out on May 10th. Workshop organizers will be
expected to issue their calls-for-participation no later than June 10th and
to issue any acceptance decisions to their participants no later than
August 14th in order to allow sufficient time for travel planning and
advance registration to the conference. All camera-ready material for the
proceedings should be collected by September 4th.

*Format*

ISMAR workshops provide a platform for presentations of novel work, work in
progress and position papers. ISMAR workshops may also serve as a platform
to actively experience the insights of a variety of pervasive computing
topics in seminars. Since seminars aim for a maximum of interactivity, we
ask organizers of seminars to focus on proposals of how to involve
attendees. This can be for example, by organizing hands-on sessions or
pro-contra discussions of reading lists. Workshops may also be organized as
a combination of both, resulting in seminars with presentations of novel
work, work in progress, or position statements.

Workshop organizers can choose one out of two options regarding the
publication. (1) The workshop's papers will be published in ISMAR 2018
adjunct Proceedings and IEEE Xplore. OR (2) The workshop's papers will not
be published but included in the supplemental material folder of the ISMAR
2018 USB memory proceedings.

*Submission Guidelines*

Workshop submissions can be directed to: [hidden email] with
cc-ing to all co-organizers and the subject "ISMAR 2018 Workshop Proposal".
