Industrial Sponsors and Exhibitors


ISMAR 2002 has closed its gates. Thank you all very much for coming, and see you at ISMAR 2003 in Tokyo!


IEEE Computer Society - Technical Committee on Wearable Information Systems (TCWIS) and Task Force on Human Centered Information Systems (TFHIS)

In cooperation with:

In the past few years, Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have received ever increasing attention, as indicated by a series of events devoted to these areas, including the well-attended International Workshops and Symposia on Augmented Reality in the USA and Europe (IWAR '98, IWAR '99, ISAR 2000, ISAR 2001) as well as the International Symposia on Mixed Reality in Japan (ISMR '99, ISMR 2001). By its very nature, MR and AR 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.

This year joins the forces working on Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality across the world in the premier forum of the field: The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) 2002 provides an opportunity for MR/AR researchers from academia and industry across the world to meet in an informal atmosphere to exchange ideas, concepts, and research results. ISMAR 2002 is meant to trigger discussions among participants and to provide an intensive exchange between industrial and academic researchers working in the different research branches of MR and AR.

The symposium will be held on two days, Sep. 30-Oct. 1 in Darmstadt, Germany and will be hosted at Technische Universität Darmstadt. In addition to paper and poster presentations and live system demonstrations, ISMAR 2002 will have several invited talks on applications of Augmented Reality and on activities in related fields.
