Augmenting Cities and Architecture with Immersive Technologies Workshop

We invite interested parties from a variety of backgrounds to participate and join our workshop to discuss how Immersive Technologies can best contribute Augmenting Cities and Architecture.

Immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) have the potential to augment experiences within cities and the process of designing architecture. Moreover, the 5G network which has low-latency and fast speed has begun. However, more work is needed to understand specific applications within these areas and how they can be designed. Therefore, the main aim of the workshop is to discuss and ideate use-cases for creating situated immersive AR, VR, and MR applications for the purpose of making cities more engaging and to help design the cities of the future over 5G network.

Workshops will be held at ISMAR 2019 on the 14th of October 2019. The exact room will only be determined the day before – please ask at the registration desk and/or student volunteers on the workshop day for more information.

All papers will undergo a peer review process by at least two expert reviewers to ensure a high standard of quality. Referees will consider originality, significance, technical soundness, clarity of exposition, and relevance to the workshop’s topics.

Research papers should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file through the EasyChair submission system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acait20190

All accepted papers will be published in ISMAR 2019 adjunct Proceedings and IEEE Xplore. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper in the workshop.
