The leading international academic conference in the fields of Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality


Date of Event:

Overview of event

ISMAR is ranked among the best scientific conferences (A* rating) and is supported by the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Visualization & Graphics Technical Committee. As the premiere conference in Mixed and Augmented Reality research, ISMAR 2018 welcomes sponsorship from companies and other organizations.

The IEEE ISMAR is the leading international academic conference in the fields of Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality.

The symposium is organized and supported by the IEEE Computer Society and IEEE VGTC.

The first ISMAR conference was held in 2002 in Darmstadt, Germany. The creation of the conference emerged from the fusion of two former academic events dedicated to this research field: the International Symposium on Augmented Reality (ISAR) and the International Symposium on Mixed Reality (ISMR).

AREA Supported IEEE ISMAR 2018 Enterprise AR Functional Requirements Workshop

Munich, 16 October 2018

Request for submissions

Submissions deadline: July 23, 2018

The Enterprise AR Functional Requirements workshop, supported by the AREA, focuses on the functional requirements for enterprise AR components. Enterprise AR customers have requirements that differ substantially from those of consumers. Having functional requirements directly benefits enterprise customers: products and services will have interoperability, customer RFPs will be easier to create and respond to, and research, as well as development communities, will have a clearer understanding of the requirements of enterprise AR buyers.

Those ISMAR attendees conducting research on enterprise AR as well as providers of AR components and solutions, will have clear definitions of customer needs. This will lead to the highest value research and greater enterprise AR project success which can then be used to influence research agendas, development road maps and future products.

Workshop topics

The topics and theme of the workshop are focused on AR research and deployment needs of enterprises. As such, we welcome submissions relevant to this theme in the following areas:

  • Hardware needs (devices, sensors, wearables, etc.)
  • Software needs (apps, authoring tools, toolkits, operating systems, browsers, etc.)
  • Data needs (formats, encryption, compression, content, etc.)
  • Integration with enterprise business systems (PLM, SLM, IoT, ERP, etc.)
  • Safety needs
  • Security needs
  • Usability needs

For more information about the AREA enterprise AR functional requirements, visit here and, prior to the workshop, we also invite you to read about and become familiar with, the current AREA requirements schema


Due to the complexity of clearing materials of sensitive nature by enterprise customers prior to submission, this workshop will not seek submissions to be published in the ISMAR proceedings.

Rather, the workshop’s organizers invite all those interested in participating to submit their scenarios and requirements by completing the downloadable submission form (using PPT) designed for this purpose.
