About – ARatICIS2012 The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (http://jvwresearch.org), following a successful workshop in Shanghai ICIS 2011, will host a special face-2-face workshop on Augmented Reality.
Augmented Reality (See for example: http://mashable.com/follow/topics/augmented-reality/) is one of the “hottest” topics in IT/IS. The rise of high-end mobile cameras, GPS, and on-device with cloud computation power allow for many new applications in this field. Theoretical research in the field (see for example: http://www.ismar11.org/) is now moving forward to actual applications.
Augmented Reality (AR) Topics include, but are not limited to: • Devices (See for example #1, #4) • AR definitions and technologies • Commercial uses of AR • Educational uses of AR (See #2) • Research methods for AR • Medical uses of AR (See #5) • Defense related AR • Standards and tools for AR. (See #3) • What should CIOs know about AR • The relation of Mobile and AR • Web and AR, WebGL, Edb3D, etc. • And more…
We will divide up the workshop into review talks and research talks, allowing for audience discussion. We are planning for 20-30 min presentations.
