Workshop on Highly Diverse Cameras and Displays for Mixed and Augmented Reality

ISMAR 2017 Workshop on 13th Oct. in Nantes, FRANCE


Scene and human sensing have been key topics in AR/MR research communities and there is no doubt that vision-based approaches have opened up a path of recent AR/MR advances. Researchers have established sophisticated methods such as scene geometry reconstruction, object recognition, head and eye tracking, and rendering to show the virtual objects on perspective displays. Thanks to these attempts, AR/MR has been widely spread to a number of people and reached to a certain point. To bring AR/MR to the next level, we need to explore concrete measures to combine these fruits. One of the possible and practical concepts to achieve the goal is to utilize diverse types of cameras and displays that would exist in the AR/MR environments or be brought to the environment by AR/MR participants. From this point of view, in this workshop, we aim at bringing opportunities to researchers to discuss experiences and findings on vision-based approaches from cameras to displays for future collaborations.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

This workshop is a related workshop to HDC2017 held as a part of the WACV 2017 workshops. While the topic of HDC2017 was mainly focused on recognition and sensing of human activity using HDC (Highly Diverse Cameras), HDCD4MAR calls for papers on various technologies achieved by HDC and/or Displays for MAR contexts, which also include the topics discussed in HDC2017.
