Call for Papers

IEEE ISMAR 2016 Workshop on Collaboration in Mixed Reality Environments (CoMiRe)
September 22, 2016
Merida, Mexico

Submission deadline: July 1, 2016

As the world becomes more complex, problem solving increasingly requires teams of experts to work together at the same location or at different ones. To support this, we need collaborative tools, and a variety of teleconferencing and telepresence technologies have been developed to address this need. However, most of them involve some variation of traditional video conferencing, which has limitations, such as not being able to effectively convey spatial cues or share the user’s task space. This workshop will focus on how these limitations can be overcome by using Mixed Reality (MR) technology, leading to the development of radically new types of collaborative experiences.


The workshop will address open research issues, including, but not limited to:

  • Case studies using MR for collaboration
  • Concepts and interaction models for MR collaboration
  • Presence, awareness, and coordination in collaborative MR systems
  • Methods for evaluating collaborative MR systems
  • Effective user interfaces for mixed groups with multiple co-located and remote collaborators
  • Robust collaborative MR user interfaces that can address connectivity problems
  • Measures of engagement, embodiment, flow & spatial awareness


Prospective authors are invited to submit position papers demonstrating research, design, practice or interest in collaborative mixed reality environments.

Position papers should be 2-6 pages long, submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ISMAR 2016 paper template available from

Submissions should not be anonymized and the author names and affiliations should be displayed on the first page. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop and register for at least one day of the conference. All accepted papers workshop’s papers will be published in the ISMAR 2016 Adjunct Proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
