Co-Located with Augmented World Expo

This year’s ISMAR will be co-located with the Augmented World Expo Europe - the leading industry meeting for Augmented Reality with nearly 1500 attendees in 2017. We expect increasing numbers of attendees from academia and industry as we’re finally bridging the gap between fundamental and applied research.

ISMAR attendees can add AWE registration with a substantially reduced price to get an all-access pass for both conferences.

Furthermore, ISMAR is supporting the Auggie Award - make sure you submit your nominations until September 15th.
