Call for Tutorials

The ISMAR 2024 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the ISMAR conference. The tutorials will be scheduled on October 21st (Monday) and October 25th (Friday) and can be conducted in person, online, or in hybrid mode, in alignment with the ISMAR conference

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, 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:
