Call for Doctoral Consortium

The ISMAR 2018 Doctoral Consortium provides an 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 be organized with presentations by the students, whose applications have been selected by the Student Consortium chairs and potentially 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 SC submissions will potentially be included in the conference proceedings published in the IEEE digital library. Complimentary conference registration will be available for selected participants.

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: July 9th, 2018 (23:59 AoE)
  • Notification: August 2nd, 2018
  • Camera-ready version: August 9th, 2018


The objectives of the student consortium are to:

  • Serve: as a supportive setting to provide/receive feedback on students' current doctoral and masters' research and 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

Submission Instructions

Submissions should be 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 IEEExplore digital library (either in the main conference proceedings or adjunct).

Submission Details

DC submissions must follow the "Conference Proceedings" format for which templates (TEX, DOC) are available from the submission guidelines, or directly from IEEE VGTC:

All materials must be submitted electronically through the Precision Conference website at: PCS
