Call for Demos

The ISMAR demonstration track is the part of the conference for showing your working prototypes, technologies and designed experiences to engage with the ISMAR attendees. 
Given this year’s conference will be virtual, the demonstrations will include live discussions and pre-recorded videos. The pre-recorded videos must include (if applicable) takes from an egocentric viewpoint, so attendees can experience how your demo works from the user’s perspective. Submitters are asked to provide a 2-page description of their demonstration, which will be available on the conference website.

We encourage a diverse range of demonstrations on the topic of Virtual, Mixed, and Augmented Reality. You are free to demonstrate the work presented in the papers, posters, or workshop sessions, as well as any new visionary, engaging, or emerging project not yet presented elsewhere!

The main selection criteria will be the expected general interest of the demonstration to the Virtual, Mixed, and Augmented Reality community.
