Cross-reality (CR) applications transition between different points on Milgram’s reality-virtuality continuum. CR implies the concurrent or sequential usage of multiple points on the continuum. In this scenario, it is important for academic research and applications to be built upon best practices developed by the scientific community. This is the first workshop focused on cross-reality applications and user experiences. However, it is based on discussions held at International Workshop on Cross-Reality (XR) Interaction @ ACM ISS 2020.
The workshop will be divided into two main sessions.
In the first session, each author will have 20 minutes (including Q&A) to present the summary of their papers.
The last session is a group activity where all workshop participants will have the opportunity to collaborate and develop an agenda for future cross-reality research.

Call for Participation
We invite all researchers to join this workshop and learn from late-breaking work in applications focused on different points on the reality-virtuality continuum. We also invite submissions on technical and systems papers that describe new approaches, ideas, discussions, and applications. All papers will be collected and curated in the workshop website and participants are invited to do a short presentations.
List of Topics
- CR UX
- Applications of CR
- Engineering processes for developing and evaluating CR
- Empirical studies of the benefits and limitations of CR
- Single-user CR
- Collaborative CR
- Use cases for CR
- Software tools for developing CR applications
- Designing CR applications
Format and submission guidelines
Prospective participants should submit a 2 to 4 page position or work-in-progress paper in the ACM Master Article Submission Template (single-column, references do not count towards page limit) describing their interest and/or previous, current, or future work related to the workshop topic.
Submissions should be sent to this email and must include a title and a list of authors, and a PDF file of the article.
These will be juried by an expert committee who will select participants based on the relevance and quality of the work on the broad domain of XR interaction. Each participant will have five minutes to present their position/work at the workshop, and at least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop and be registered for at least one day of the conference.
Researchers and practitioners are interested in cross-reality applications that bridge between different points on Milgram’s reality-virtuality spectrum, graduate students conducting research in the area, and interested in building an international network.
