IEEE Conference Seeks Humanities Proposals

May 14th, 2009 by Dot Porter

The 8th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2009) will focus particularly on the Arts, Media, and Humanities. According to the conference website (http://campwww.informatik.tu-muenchen.de/ismar09/doku.php?id=ismar09:arts_media_and_humanities_program):

ISMAR and its forerunners IWAR, ISMR and ISAR, have been the premier forums in this vital field since 1998 (http://www.ismar-conf.org). This year, we place particular emphasis on widening the scope of MR/AR toward the areas of arts, entertainment and the humanities. To this end, 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.

The focus and scope of this call for participation in the Arts, Media and Humanities track are new and have different topics, reviewers and selection criteria. These will be complemented with Tutorials, Workshops, Demonstrations and Competitions will provide more opportunities for contributions and submissions.
