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 forerunner events, IWAR/ISAR and ISMR, have been the premier forums in this vital field (http://www.augmented-reality.org/iwar/).
We solicit artists and theorists, authors, creators, designers and scholars to participate to the new ISMAR Art, Humanities and Media Program. We are encouraging the arts and humanities communities to bring their own vision and work in this area to the leading conference on augmented reality and mixed reality technology.
We are particularly interested in works that push the boundaries of what is thought of as AR/MR and offer new modes of combining the digital and the material—moes in which media can be localized and our sense of place can be mediatized. Projects can range from fully realized interactive technical systems to compelling concepts. We are seeking projects that fall within the noted themes listed below and engage with contemporary theoretical issues and positions within the humanities.
This program will be highly multi-disciplinary and aspire to touch areas as fine art, visual and performing art, music, film, and theatre, as well as the design disciplines, thet humanities, and the social sciences. Our goal is to make ISMAR 2009 a place to exchange ideas between the humanities community and scientists and technologists, foster creativity and discussions, and propose a unique platform for humanists and artists to benefit of state of the art technology.
