The ISMAR 2017 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held 
in the ISMAR 2017 main conference. The workshops will be held on 9th and 13th 
October 2017, in Nantes, France.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with the opportunity to 
present and discuss research ideas on cutting-edge research topics related to 
Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality as Science & Technology and Arts, Media, 
& Humanities. We encourage researchers from different academic communities as 
well as from industry and public institutions to bring together and to 
collaborate and discuss with each other about possible future topics and trends.

The scope of the proposals should be consistent with the main conference 
topics. Please visit the conference webpage:

ISMAR workshops provide a platform for presentations of novel work, work in 
progress and position papers. ISMAR workshops may also serve as a platform to 
actively experience the insights of a variety of pervasive computing topics in 
seminars. Since seminars aim for a maximum of interactivity, we ask organizers 
of seminars to focus on proposals of how to involve attendances. This can be 
for example, by organizing hands-on sessions or pro-contra discussions of 
reading lists. Workshops may also be organized as a combination of both, 
resulting in seminars with presentations of novel work, work in progress or 
position statements.

Workshop organizers can choose one out of two options regarding the 
publication. (1) The workshop's papers will be published in ISMAR 2017 adjunct 
Proceedings and IEEE Xplore. OR (2) The workshop's papers will not be published 
but included in the supplemental material folder of the ISMAR 2017 USB memory
