ISMAR 06 --- Fifth IEEE and ACM International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality --- Oct. 22 - 25, 2006 in Santa Barbara, CA

Student Colloquium

Call for Participation

The ISMAR Student Colloquium is an opportunity for students pursuing a graduate degree in the general research area of Mixed and Augmented Reality to present their research goals and interactively discuss challenges and ideas among a group of senior researchers and other students. This is a great opportunity for students to make a strong step in conference networking and establish themselves as upcoming mixed reality researchers. During the session, selected students will present short research sketches, discussing their problem area, current results and future avenues of research, with the opportunity to receive input from the audience and inspire potential collaborations. It will also provide excellent conference presentation practice in a low stress setting.

The Student Colloquium will be held on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2006 from 12:30pm to 2:00pm, in conjunction with the International Symposium of Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR), which is held from Oct. 22 to Oct 25, 2006 at University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA.

Students selected to present in the colloquium will receive complimentary registration for the two ISMAR tutorial sessions on the same day, "Computer Vision for Augmented Reality" and "Head-worn Displays - Fundamentals and Applications". Lunch will also be provided.
