The 22nd International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality took place in Sydney from 16 to 20 October 20023. The HIVE team was there with three workshop contributions, two poster publications and one workshop organisation.
In mid-October, Fabian Pointecker, Judith Friedl-Knirsch and David Aigner travelled to New South Wales in Australia to represent the HIVE research group at ISMAR 2023 in Sydney.
The conference started on Monday with the "1st Joint Workshop on Cross Reality". The workshop took place hybrid with about 35 people on site and about 20 participants online. The workshop was organised by Hai-Ning Liang (Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University), Hans-Christian Jetter (University of Lübeck), Frank Maurer (University of Calgary), Uwe Grünefeld (University of Duisburg-Essen), Mark Billinghurst (University of South Australia and University of Auckland) and Christoph Anthes (FH Oberösterreich), head of the HIVE research group. As part of the programme committee, Judith Friedl-Knirsch and Fabian Pointecker supported the organisation on site in Sydney. During the workshop, Fabian Pointecker presented the paper "Visual Metaphors for Notification Into Virtual Environments" and Judith Friedl-Knirsch the paper "Exploring Collaboration for Data Analysis in Augmented Reality for Multiple Devices". In addition, Nanjia Wang presented the paper "Serious Cross Reality - Using CR to Enhance Analytics Workflow", which was developed in cooperation with HIVE during Nanjia's research stay in Hagenberg.

David Aigner then presented a poster entitled "Cardiac Visualisation Along the RV-Continuum - A High-Fidelity Pilot Study" on Wednesday 18 October. The poster was created in co-operation with the Kepler Clinic Linz, the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, the Technical University Munich and the University of Calgary. The poster presentation was supported by video footage of the prototype developed for this purpose, which enables interaction with medical data in 2D and augmented reality.
The poster publication "Adaptive Volumetric Anatomy Visualisation with Tangible Control", which was developed in cooperation with the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Technical University Munich, University of Passau and Kepler Klinikum, was finally presented by Constantin Kleinbeck on Thursday 19 October.
Once you've made the journey of around 16100 kilometres, a bit of sightseeing is of course a must. In addition to the city itself, Sydney offers ideal opportunities to visit the surrounding national parks.
