ICIS http://icis2012.aisnet.org/ is the major annual international meeting of the Association for Information Systems (AIS), which has over 4,000 members representing universities in over 95 countries worldwide. It is the most prestigious gathering of academics and practitioners in the IS discipline, and provides a forum for networking and sharing of latest ideas and highest caliber scientific work among the IS professions. Each year, over 1,000 IS academic professions from around the world participate in the conference program, which includes about 60 sessions and 180 presentations, in addition to keynotes, CIO panels, and research panels.

 

The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (http://jvwresearch.org), following a successful workshop in Shanghai at ICIS 2011, will host a special face-2-face workshop on Augmented Reality.

Background About AR:

Journal web: http://www.jvwresearch.org
Event page: http://jvwresearch.org/index.php/component/content/article/11-events/42
"Sight" - a vision of AR in the near future: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPMggzUlcDc
Intro to the workshop in Google Hangout: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt7yGo2P96g

Augmented Reality (for example: http://mashable.com/follow/topics/augmented-reality/) is one of the “hottest” topics in IT/IS. The rise of high-end mobile cameras, GPS, and devices with on-cloud computation allow for many new opportunities. Theoretical research in the field (see for example: http://www.ismar11.org/) is now being further developed into applications.
