Call for Demos


The ISMAR demonstration track features contributors showing working prototypes, technologies, and designed experiences to engage with the ISMAR attendees.

All accepted demonstrations will be presented at the conference. Presentations will be in person if possible, though given the current situation with COVID-19 we expect to support authors presenting remotely. Authors of accepted demos may choose online-only presentation if they cannot attend in person. All submissions will include pre-recorded videos which 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.
