The IEEE ISMAR is the leading international academic conference in the fields of Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality. The symposium is organized and supported by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Visualization Graphics Techincal Committee and is ranked among the best scientific conferences (A* rating).
Khronos is an Industry Sponsor of ISMAR.
Every year exciting new trends are seeded at ISMAR, from Depth Reconstruction work to AR Visualization with Light Field glasses. Technologies like Single Camera SLAM, PTAM, and Kinect Fusion were first introduced at ISMAR.
In 2019, the ISMAR themes include:
Mediated and diminished reality
Multisensory rendering, registration, and synchronization
Photorealistic and non-photorealistic rendering
Real-time and non-real-time interactive rendering
Visual, aural, haptic, and olfactory augmentation
Acquisition of 3D video and scene descriptions
Calibration and registration (of sensing systems)
Location sensing technologies (of any kind, including non-real-time)
Touch, tangible and gesture interfaces
Video processing and streaming
Wearable sensors, ambient-device interaction
Display hardware, including 3D, stereoscopic, and multi-user
Live video stream augmentation (e.g., in robotics and broadcast)
Wearable actuators and augmented humans
Wearable and situated displays (e.g., eyewear, smart watches, pico-projectors)
