Call for Papers
Doctoral Consortium
International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality 2014
** September 8-9th 2014, Munich, Bavaria, Germany **

The 3rd ISMAR Doctoral Consortium (DC) will take place as part of ISMAR 
2014, on the evening of September 8th and all day on September 9th.  The 
goal of the Doctoral Consortium is to create an opportunity for PhD 
students to present their research, discuss their current progress and 
plans, and receive constructive criticism and guidance regarding their 
work and future career objectives.  The Doctoral Consortium is 
structured around doctoral students presentations and in-depth 
discussions between the students and mentors.

All submissions to the Doctoral Consortium will be reviewed with a view 
to selecting a group of students best positioned to receive and act on 
constructive feedback: the ideal candidates are those students who are 
in the early stage of PhD dissertation research or have just proposed 
their dissertation topic for their PhD candidacy. The accepted 
submissions will be selected for presentation at the ISMAR2014 Doctoral 
Consortium and at the conference poster session.

Accepted students will receive complementary registration to ISMAR 2014. 
Lodging (shared room) and partial travel assistance may also be 
available. The accepted DC papers will be included in the conference 
proceedings and (option upon author’s agreement) archived in IEEE 
Digital Library.

Doctoral Consortium submissions should be a 4-page description of the 
applicant’s dissertation work. The submission must be strictly formatted 
according to the IEEE VGTC formatting guidelines 
(http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html). The submission should 
contain the following content:

• Research Context and Motivation
• Objectives and Goals of your dissertation research
• Key Background and Literature review
• Hypotheses and Research Questions
• Research Methodologies
• Results to date and Discussions
• Expected contribution and Plan for completion

The DC will include a group dinner on Monday September 8th, and a full 
day of presentations and discussion by participants and mentors on 
Tuesday September 9th.  Each student will get a 1-hour slot, which 
consists of the student’s 25-mintue presentation detailing their 
dissertation research, general question & answer, and constructive 
critiques from the designated mentor(s). Furthermore, the accepted 
students will be expected to create a poster (size approximately 3 feet 
x 4 feet, to-be-confirmed) to be placed (and participate) during the 
conference’s poster session.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches 
that align with the two main tracks of the ISMAR conference: Science & 
Technology (S&T) covering emerging technological capabilities of MR/AR 
and the Media professionals, Artists, Social Scientists, Humanity 
scholars and Designers (MASH’D) program covering the human side of 
technology application.

Submission Deadline:           16 July 2014
Acceptance Notification date:  21 July 2014
Camera-Ready Deadline:         25 July 2014

All submissions will be acknowledged by email; submissions received
