Call for Tutorials


The ISMAR 2021 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the ISMAR conference. The tutorials will be scheduled on Monday 4 October and Friday 8 October.

The purpose of the tutorials is to expand the knowledge in the fields of augmented, mixed, and/or virtual reality and to foster the next generation of researchers, developers, and artists. Proposals will be evaluated on their relevance to the conference topics, their suitability for presentation in a tutorial format, and the qualifications of the instructors. We will strive for a balance of topics in the tutorial program and also consider the potential for interest and attendance.

The scope of the proposals should be consistent with the main conference topics. Please visit the conference website for more details:

Tutorial proposals must be submitted before Friday, 23 April 2021 (23:59 AoE).

Important Deadlines

  • Proposal Deadline: 23rd April 2021 (23:59 AoE)

Experts, pioneers, and experienced developers and artists are needed to propose and present tutorials that may target a specific application area, a specific research area, or a topic of general interest for augmented, mixed, and virtual reality.
