The ISMAR Conference and Exhibition is preceded by a day of workshops. Attendence of these by researchers and practitioners is optional, butÂ very much recommended, since they provide a very flexible and open environment where information and knowledge can be shared.
These workshops bypass the normally very rigourous peer-review process, but are of high quality and are considered to be very valuable.
In order to register for ISMAR workshop, you have to register for the conference itself by following the workshop registration process, and paying the fees.
In previous years, there were special workshops targetted at professional users of Augmented Reality in industry.Â Three out of the six ISMAR workshops have been focused on this.
There were also workshops on the topic of Augmented Reality in the context of Social Networking andÂ Mobile AR has also been another of the main themes. There are some summary descriptions of the previous workshops below.
These workshops are designed to bring together people who are applying technologies.
Contributors and participants are those who have or wish to acquire experience using the off-the-shelf or custom-built tools for AR development in order to solve real world problems in their companies, or to make new experiences possible for audiences in a specific domain.

“Manufacturing the Future”: Â This discussed MA and AR Mixed in Design and Manufacturing.
There were also several Mobile Augmented Reality workshops which looked at how to use a variety of devices with pre-integrated sensors such as
