*Call for Doctoral Consortium – ISMAR 2020*
The International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality

The ISMAR 2020 Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides a great opportunity for
doctoral students to present and receive feedback about their research in
an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of mentors
selected from experienced people in the field. We invite students who feel
they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their research to use this
unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation
as well as senior researchers in the field.

The consortium will comprise presentations by students, whose applications
have been selected by the Doctoral Consortium chairs and other reviewers.
The strongest candidates will be those who have a clear topic and research
approach, and have made some progress, but who are not so far along in
their research that they can no longer make changes. The final version of
accepted DC proposals can be included in the conference proceedings
published in the IEEE digital library on request.

*Important Deadlines*
Submission deadline: August, 27th 2020 (23:59 AoE)
Notification: September 20th, 2020
Camera-ready version: September 27th, 2020
Consortium meeting: November XX, 2020 (TBD)

The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are to:

   - Serve as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on students’
   current doctoral and master’s research as well as guidance on future
   research directions.
   - Offer each student comments and fresh perspectives on their work from
   researchers and students outside of their own institution.
   - Promote the development of a supportive community of scholars with
   affinity to IEEE ISMAR, and a spirit of collaborative research.
   - Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other
   researchers and conference events.

While aiming at organizing the conference in Brazil, the ISMAR organizers
are also considering an alternative online conference in case travel bans
are not lifted in time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Doctoral
Consortium will, of course, be impacted by this decision.

Independently, the DC will provide an icebreaker event, presentations slots
for all accepted contributions as well as time for discussion and a space
for continuing discussions between participants including mentors after the

*Submission Instructions*
Submissions should be between 2 pages and 4 pages in length, including
references. The content should include an overview of your planned thesis
work. You may additionally also focus on a more specific area of the
research if desired. Ideal candidates will be in the early or mid-stages of
their PhD, and should have a solid idea of their direction and topic, but
should also have room for improvement.

Submissions will have the option of being archived in the IEEE Xplore
digital library (either in the main or adjunct conference proceedings). The
selection is based both on the review of the submission and the feedback on
the presentation.

*Submission Details*
DC submissions must follow the “Conference Proceedings” format for which
templates (LaTeX, Word) are available from the submission guidelines
<http://ismar20.org/submission-guidelines/>, or directly from IEEE VGTC:

   - VGTC LaTeX Template
   - VGTC Word Template
   - VGTC Sample PDF Paper

All materials must be submitted electronically to dc_chairs at ismar20.org.
