Whether designed to entertain or achieve more "serious" purposes, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR)—collectively “XR”—have implications in a wide range of meaningful domains, such as education, physical health, well-being, and social equity.

Meaningful XR 2024 is a conference for scholars and industry professionals about theory, research, design innovations, principles, and practices related to meaningful uses of XR.

The conference will include thought-provoking keynotes from both academic and industry leaders, peer-reviewed paper presentations, panel sessions, "XRbitions," and social mixers in both VR and meatspace.
