Special Issue "Augmented and Mixed Reality in Work Context"
A special issue of Computers (ISSN 2073-431X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2019).
Interests: virtual environments; virtual prototyping; software engineering; qualitative research methods
Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) are technologies that include physical and virtual elements. They are useful for making invisible and non-existing elements observable and so are easier to evaluate and discuss. This Special Issue focuses on how AR and MR are used and could be used in a work context. Possible examples are AR and MR use in industrial situations and in manufacturing development, as well as in the development of work practices, as AR and MR can be used for making workers’ tacit knowledge visible.
Studies in AR and MR, as well as virtual reality (VR) technology solutions in a work context, are welcome for this issue. However, AR and MR for consumers, leisure time, entertainment, and games are not agreed on in this Special Issue. Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Virtual prototyping
- AR and MR in co-operative, multi-occupational development
- Simulation with AR or MR in a work context
- Maintenance solutions with AR or MR
- Action research within AR or MR in a work context

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Computers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
