Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) melt the barriers between virtual media, the physical world and our imagination by enriching our ability to interact with all three. New applications in diverse areas such as Engineering, Entertainment, Arts, Education Media and Humanities push the boundaries of science and technology.

As the premier conference in the field, ISMAR is responding to this evolution by expanding the program scope. Two key areas of submissions are Science & Technology (S&T) covering emerging capabilities of MR/AR and the MASH'D program covering the human side of technology application, including real world explorations by Media professionals, Artists, Social Scientists, Humanity scholars and Designers (MASH'D).
