In order to adhere to space constraints for this inaugural Meaningful XR, physical attendance will be limited to participants who have a paper or proposal accepted for presentation. 

Likewise, papers and proposals must be presented in person at the physical conference by at least one member of each submission team. 

However, we will also offer a hybrid option for remote participants to attend selected presentations and social events using a VR headset, computer, or mobile device.
