Aims and Scope

  • Mixed reality (MR) and augmented reality (AR) allow for the convergence of real and virtual worlds. The evolution of novel MR/AR user interfaces is beginning to have significant impact on industry and society. The field is highly interdisciplinary, bringing together signal processing, computer vision, computer graphics, user interfaces, human factors, display and sensor technologies, and wearable, mobile and ubiquitous computing, to name just some of the most important influences. MR/AR concepts are applicable to a wide range of applications. ISMAR and its forerunners IWAR, ISMR and ISAR, have been the premier forums in this vital field since 1998 (

  • This year we are proud to present the 9th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2010). The symposium will be held from October 13th to 16th, 2010, in Seoul, Korea. We invite you all to participate in this great event for the exchange of new ideas in this exciting field. As in ISMAR 2009, the “traditional” Science & Technology track will be complemented by an Arts, Media and Humanities track with its unique and separate publication. Both programs will follow ISMAR’s stringent publication requirements with reviews being provided by qualified peers from these respective disciplines.

  • Note that there is only one track for papers (that is no distinction between full and short). Thus, papers can be submitted in minimum of four pages or more. The reviews will be done based on the contribution (the length) of the paper. For example, a paper in six pages will be expected of more contribution than one with four pages.

Call for Papers and Posters

MR/AR applications across all areas of personal and professional activities, such as:Personal MR/AR information systems, games, applications in industry, military, medicine, science, entertainment, architecture, tourism, art, cultural heritage, education, training etc..

  • ISMAR 2010 invites paper and poster submissions in the general field of mixed and augmented reality. Submissions of papers (4 to 10 pages) and posters (up to 2 pages) will be accepted. Don’t stretch papers unnecessarily to adhere to the page limits. Only novel contributions will be accepted. As a result of the reviewing process, authors may be asked to revise their papers, requiring a second acceptance process by a shepherd. All accepted papers in each category will be published in the proceedings. Papers and posters must be formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society TCVG authoring guidelines ( and submitted electronically as PDF documents. ISMAR uses a single-blind reviewing process. Thus, authors and affiliations may be mentioned. Detailed submission instructions will be provided on the web site ( a month before the submission deadline.


  • Submission: May 24(abstract), May 31(paper) 2010 for S&T track / May 31, 2010 for AMH track
  • Notification: July 29, 2010
  • Camera-ready copies: August 24, 2010

Call for Innovation Workshops

  • ISMAR 2010 will have a series of workshops the day before the conference to cover the innovative applications of Mixed and Augmented Reality and newly emerging fields of MR/AR. We invite you to submit papers or panel discussions that will address topics of transferring MR/AR to solve critical real world problems.


  • Submission: June 1, 2010
  • Notification: June 16, 2010
  • Camera-ready copies: August 21, 2010

Call for Pioneering Tutorials

  • The purpose of the tutorials is to expand the knowledge of the AR/MR community and foster the next generation of AR/MR researchers, developers, and artists. AR/MR experts, pioneers, and experienced developers and artists are needed to propose and present tutorials that may target a specific application area, a specific research area, or a topic of general interest for mixed or augmented reality. Topics can range from introductory for AR/MR novices to highly technical for AR/MR researchers. We invite individuals or teams interested in presenting such a tutorial to submit proposals.
  • Tutorials can be from 30 minutes to full-day tutorials, depending on the scope of topics covered and the presenters available. Please submit an abstract, presenter bios, and an outline of the tutorial that describes the order of topics presented and timing for each topic. Also, please include one or more high resolution pictures that are relevant to your tutorial.



Call for Demonstrations, Showcases & Exhibitions:

  • ISMAR 2010 provides a venue for showing demonstrations of Mixed and Augmented Reality to the community. The live demonstrations may be related to implementations of techniques presented in the papers, posters or panels, as well as systems not yet presented elsewhere. The main selection criteria will be the expected general interest of the demonstration to the Mixed and Augmented Reality community.
  • ISMAR 2010 will accept following four types of demonstrations:

Laboratory Demonstration:

  • provides the opportunity for “late breaking” research teams to informally demonstrate their latest discoveries and inventions. We will accept the Laboratory Demonstration until the last minute, pending committee discretion and conference accommodations (Note: submissions received after August 1, 2010 will not be included in the publications).

Research Showcase:

  • is a more formal presentation of innovative Mixed and Augmented Reality content that involves more production support and exhibit design considerations.
