Winter Augmented Reality Meeting 2007
26th/27th February 2007, Graz, Austria
Call for Participation
The fields of Computer Graphics, Augmented Reality, Computer Vision and Ubiquitous Computing have the potential to be synergistic. However, the overlap and mutual contributions of each area has yet to be expressed and understood. The specialist, immersed in his or her own discipline, struggles to see the "big picture". The core of the workshop is to be Augmented Reality and Ubiquitous Computing and we are soliciting presentations from members of each community that illuminate the interplay between the different disciplines and AR.
We welcome presentations on all topics related to AR and Ubicomp including but not limited to:
- Tracking including sensor fusion and computer vision
- Mobile augmented reality
- Ubiquitous augmented reality
- Smart environments
- User interface techniques and interaction methods
- User studies
- Future directions for AR research
The workshop lasts for two days, each having a different focus:
- Day one: Tracking and Sensors
- Day two: Augmented Reality
A detailed program will be put online after the submission deadline.
We plan to have 15-20 min presentation slots and at least 10 min of discussion time for each presentation. Furthermore we plan demo sessions (in case enough demos are submitted).
To participate, please submit a title and a short abstract for your presentation to email@example.com by 15th of January.
Presenters' slides are now online (requires password).
The advance program is now online.
After the great success of last year's WARM event (organized by Joe Newman, more information to be found here), WARM will be bigger this year. We expect visitors from at least 4 different universities from Austria, Germany and the uK and maybe some non-European colleagues too. We are happy seeing WARM evolving into a more and more international event.
There is a 3-day skiing event planned for the days after the workshop from February 28th to March 2nd. We will rent apartments directly in the skiing area at Planneralm (see this web page for more information). Since we have to book the apartments early, registration for the skiing event is December 15th too.
The 2-day workshop will be held in at the Graz University of Technology. The location for the skiing days is Planneralm (see above).
Attendees will have to organize their staying in Graz themselves. There are no costs for the workshop itself.
Those who want to go skiing can find the price for tickets at Planneralm here. Other skiing areas in Styria have similar prices. The costs for renting the apartments is 105€ per night (this is for a complete apartment with 5 or 6 beds!) plus 30€ for cleaning at the end. We still have to decide if we organize a bus from Graz to Planneralm and back or if people go there by car individually.
DurationThe workshop itself will last for two days (Mon/Tue 26th/27th February) plus an optional three day skiing event after the workshop (Feb. 28th to March 2nd) for those interested.
Please register until 15th December 2006 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
