Introduction: Smartphones embedded with many sensors have become very powerful. Hence, recently several mobile augmented reality (AR) applications have been developed e.g. AR-based tourist guiding system. Such applications superimpose computer-generated data such as text, video, graphs on top of the real-world view as captured by a camera embedded within a smartphone. Thus, such applications enhance a users' perception of reality and of his surrounding environment. Furthermore, mobile augmented reality applications which are designed for children with special needs have recently appeared. In addition, recently researchers have extended robots usage into our daily lives such as search and rescue operations, education, entertainment, special need population e.g. autistic children or seniors. These new mobile augmented reality and robot application domains require close interactions with human beings, smart intelligence to allow smooth visual and audio recognition and some novel interface design. In this workshop, we hope to gather researchers who conduct researches in these two exciting fields to gather and share information on the challenges they face as well as their innovative design.
