Augmented Reality

One Day BMVA Technical Meeting in association with the UKVRSIG and IEE/E4 at British Institute of Radiology, London, UK on 3rd May 2000

Augmented reality is the process of augmenting the users view of a world with synthetic models or information. This could be anything from the written annotation of a scene to superimposed 3D graphical models. The applications of Augmented Reality are in wearable computing, HCI, medical, construction and visual media to name a few. The aim of this meeting is to bring together a number of talks on the common problems and solutions associated with these application areas.

Chairpersons: Richard Bowden (Brunel University)
Andrew Fitzgibon (Oxford University)
