Extended Reality (XR) refers to all environments that combine real and virtual elements generated by computer technology. It includes representative forms such as Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR), and Virtual Reality (VR). XR is a superset which includes the entire spectrum from "the complete real" to "the complete virtual" in the reality–virtuality continuum.
We are looking for the latest research and development results in XR to be showcased at the SIGGRAPH Asia 2022 XR Program. This includes state-of-the-art solutions for interactive technologies, immersive installations, storytelling, new approaches for creative expression, novel displays, and collaboration within VR, AR, and MR Environments.
The SIGGRAPH Asia XR program offers a highly visible and interactive venue to present the latest in XR emerging digital media and interactive technologies. If you are doing anything innovative in the XR space, we would love to show your work at SIGGRAPH Asia 2022. We are looking forward to receiving your demonstration submissions!
As part of your submission materials, you will be asked to describe how you are going to present your demo at the venue and online. We welcome all creative approaches! As there are three programs with overlapping scope at SIGGRAPH Asia XR, Emerging Technologies, Art Gallery, please click here to find out which program would be ideal for you to submit your works to.
