ISMAR 2021 - Call for Competition: Hybrid Conference of the Future

IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON MIXED AND AUGMENTED REALITY

Bari, Italy

October 4 to 8, 2021

http://www.ismar21.org/

OVERVIEW

This is an open invitation to anyone interested in Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), and Virtual Reality (VR) to participate in the ISMAR Contest. The ISMAR Contest will be held during IEEE ISMAR 2021, the premier conference for AR and MR, October 4-8, 2021.

PURPOSE

The purpose of the ISMAR Contest is to stimulate innovative and creative solutions to facilitating the “Hybrid Conference of the Future” in which conference attendees can synchronously engage each other intellectually and socially in a natural manner, as if they were co-located in the same real-world venue, despite only some being physically present at the venue, while others attend remotely. The theme of the contest is “Natural Social Interactions.”

For this year’s ISMAR Contest, we expect the following functionalities of any solution:

• The implemented solution facilitates natural social interactions among multiple remote attendees joining a conference from various global locations.

• The solution must include software that ISMAR 2021 remote attendees can download, install, and use to engage in the social interactions.

• The solution software must support at least one of the following types of devices: desktop/laptop, smartphone, tablet. However, ideal solutions will support all three and will be cross platform (i.e., Windows/MacOS/Linux for desktops and laptops, Android/iOS for smartphones and tablets).

• The implemented solution preserves the natural social interactions among multiple attendees co- located at a conference in the same real-world space.

• Contestants will be responsible for bringing the hardware for the co-located attendees to ISMAR 2021.

• The implemented solution facilitates natural social interactions among the multiple remote attendees and the multiple attendees co-located at a conference in the real-world space.

Selected contestants will be required to provide a live demonstration of their solutions during ISMAR 2021, October 4-8, 2021. ISMAR 2021 is scheduled to be a hybrid conference; however, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the conference may become purely virtual. Contestants are expected to create solutions that can be demonstrated for either modality, i.e., hybrid or purely virtual (where all attendees are remote).

CONTEST ENTRY (Due July 19, 2021)

Teams interested in entering the ISMAR Contest should send a high-quality video (no more than 5 minutes) demonstrating their tentative solution, a brief description of the solution, a title for the solution, and a list of all team members via email to competition_chairs@ismar21.org by July 19, 2021. The Contest Chairs will review the contest entries and will notify teams whether their entries have been selected or not by July 26, 2021.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION (Due August 6, 2021)

Teams selected for the competition must submit an abstract (2 pages) that describes their solution and its innovations. This abstract must adhere to the ISMAR 2021 Conference Proceedings format: https://ismar21.org/call-for-papers/. Acceptable abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings of IEEE ISMAR 2021 and will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library.

COMPETITION (October 4-8, 2021)

Teams selected for the competition will demonstrate their solutions live at IEEE ISMAR 2021. If ISMAR 2021 is held as a hybrid conference, teams can choose to either demonstrate their solutions at ISMAR 2021 in Bari, Italy or remotely. If ISMAR 2021 is held as a purely virtual conference, all teams will demonstrate their solutions remotely.

A panel of judges with no conflicts of interest will be chosen to judge the demonstrations and solutions. Additionally, IEEE ISMAR 2021 attendees will have the ability to vote for their favorite demonstrations and solutions. The Contest Chairs will use the feedback of the judges and the attendee votes to decide Grand Prize and Honorable Mention solutions.

PRIZES

The team with the Grand Prize solution will receive a $1500 reward and will be invited to submit an IEEE Transactions on Visualizations and Computer Graphics (TVCG) journal paper, which will be included in the IEEE ISMAR 2022 Journal Proceedings. In addition to describing the solution, this TVCG journal paper must also include a formal evaluation of the solution, which can be conducted after the 2021 Competition. The submission will undergo the same reviewing rigor as all other journal submissions.

The team with the Honorable Mention solution will receive a $500 reward for their solution.
