Technological advances, taking place during the last decade, triggered the design and development of a variety of novel interactive systems that seamlessly integrate both real and virtual elements in a unified environment, along with natural and multi-modal user interfaces enabled by a variety of technologies and wearables. The complexity of the categorization of such environments and their continuous evolvement led to the emergence of the term extended reality (XR), where the X stands for any already developed, or future technology, enabling such environments to exist. Currently, XR includes augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and virtual reality (VR), i.e., the most predominant categories of systems and experiences combining real and virtual elements. Nevertheless, newly introduced technologies and interaction techniques continuously emerge in the field of XR, greatly affecting the experience of the users when immersed in XR environments, raising a need for further studies regarding usability and user experience. This Special Issue servers as an opportunity for researchers to present their high-quality works towards user experience in the continuously growing and changing field of XR.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
