The ISMAR 06 ( 5th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality) will be Oct. 22 to Oct 25, 2006 at University of California in Santa Barbara, USA

4th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and the Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften.
In cooperation with ACM and Eurographics.

Over the last decade, Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have evolved from experimental technologies to mainstream research activities that are starting to show impact on industry and society. By their very nature, Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality are highly interdisciplinary fields involving signal processing, computer vision, computer graphics, user interfaces, human factors, wearable computing, mobile computing, computer networks, distributed computing, information access, information visualization, and hardware design for new displays and sensors. MR/AR concepts are applicable to a wide range of applications.

The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality is the premier forum in this vital field. A series of independent conferences on Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality started in 1998, and has led to a joint symposium in 2002, This year we are proud to present the fourth installment of the series, the 4th IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 05).

The symposium will be held from October 5-8, 2005, in Vienna, Austria. We invite you all to participate in this great event for the exchange of new ideas in this exciting field!


  • NEW Updated Schedule: We have switched the poster session from saturday to thursday, making friday the first demo session. On thursday evening there will be time to setup your demos without missing parts of the conference. See Advance Program for details.
  • NEW Information for demo authors are available.
  • Student Award: We are glad to announce that there will be a Best Student Paper Award at this years conference. The prize will be presented during the ISMAR conference. The best student papers have been sent to an independent award committee who will select the two outstanding student papers.


ISMAR 05 stands for:

  • Innovation: bridging research with industry.
  • Science: Transforming ideas into inventions and new capabilities.
  • Media: maturing technology into powerful communication tool for humanities.
  • Art: elevating AR/MR media to a powerful form of expression.
  • Research: taking on forward thinking challenges for breakthrough discovery.
