Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) allow the creation of fascinating new types of user interfaces, and are beginning to show significant impact on industry and society. The field is highly interdisciplinary, bringing together signal processing, computer vision, computer graphics, user interfaces, human factors, wearable computing, mobile computing, computer networks, displays, sensors, to name just some of the most important influences. MR/AR concepts are applicable to a wide range of applications.

Since 1998, ISMAR and its forerunners, IWAR/ISAR and ISMR, have been the premier forums in this vital field (

This year we are proud to present the 6th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2007). The symposium will be held on Nov. 13-16, 2007, in historical Nara, Japan. We invite you all to participate in this great event for the exchange of new ideas in this exciting field!


ISMAR '07 invites paper and poster submissions in the general field of Mixed and Augmented Reality. This year we are inviting submissions of full papers (up to 10 pages), short papers (up to 4 pages), and posters (up to 2 pages). All three categories will be published in the printed proceedings. Submission instructions can be found on the Paper/Poster Submission page.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

MR/AR applications

  • personal MR/AR information systems
  • industrial and military MR/AR applications
  • medical MR/AR applications
  • MR/AR for entertainment
  • MR/AR for architecture
  • MR/AR for art, cultural heritage, or education and training


  • position and orientation tracking technology
  • calibration methods
  • sensor fusion
  • vision-based registration and tracking
  • acquisition of 3D scene descriptions

System architecture

  • wearable and mobile computing
  • distributed and collaborative MR/AR
  • display hardware
  • performance issues (real-time approaches)

User interaction

  • interaction techniques for MR/AR
  • collaborative MR/AR
  • multimodal input and output

Information presentation

  • real-time rendering
  • photorealistic rendering
  • object overlay and spatial layout techniques
  • aural, haptic and olfactory augmentation
  • mediated and diminished reality
  • display and view management

Human factors

  • usability studies and experiments
  • acceptance of MR/AR technology
  • social implications


Workshops and tutorials may target a specific application area, a specific research area, or a topic of general interest for mixed or augmented reality. We invite individuals or teams interested in presenting such a workshop or tutorial to submit proposals. Submission instructions can be found on the Workshop/Tutorial Submission page.


Submission deadline: June 1, 9pm PST
