The future is bright and challenging: we envision a very complex combination of mixed reality (MR), artificial intelligence (AI) and spatial computing as a smart integration of interconnected systems – seamlessly bridging both physical and virtual spaces. The upcoming generation of everyday wearable, embedded, and ubiquitous technology allows the ideation and validation of a wide range of next-generation context-aware, or intelligent MR user experiences. Realization of this vision is promising especially given recent interdisciplinary advancements in key areas and growing interest in applying these novel approaches in real-world application domains.
This special issue aims to attract ambitious contributions addressing this intelligent vision for mixed-reality leveraging, new computational interfaces, spatial computing, rich and diverse data sources, smart devices’ extensive computation power, artificial intelligence, and sensing capabilities, as well as ubiquitous connectivity, computation resources, and storage offered by the existing communication and network infrastructure.
We ask for contributions that address new methods, technologies, approaches, applications, case studies, and industrial showcases, paving the way for novel insights, breakthrough designs, discussions, and developments in this rapidly evolving domain. Specifically, we invite contributions that explore innovations in the following topics of interest, but not limited to (order is alphabetical and does not indicate importance):
Context-aware computing, semantic scene understanding
Diversity, inclusion, equity, and ethical issues
Ergonomics, human factors, human-computer interaction
Extended senses (visual, aural, haptic)
Localization, spatial registration, and tracking
Presence, body ownership, and agency
Spatial-, mixed-, mediated- and diminished- reality
Sensation, perception, attention, and cognition
System architectures, distributed and online systems
Next-generation user interfaces, user interaction, and visualization techniques ● Technology acceptance and social implications
User-centered design approaches for spatial computing
User experience and performances, usability studies, and human-subjects experiments
