Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue encourages submissions focused on research into eXtended Reality for social inclusion and educational purpose.

Recent advances in eXtended Reality (XR), a technological umbrella that unites Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), provide new opportunities to engage users more effectively, creating interactive experiences that can combine learning with fun. It is possible to create virtual workshops for social inclusion to enhance know-how and creativity, focusing on cultural heritage, theatre and technology.

Authors of selected papers presented at the 1st International Conference on eXtended Reality (XR Salento 2022 - www.xrsalento.it) and at the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Metrology for eXtended Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Neural Engineering (IEEE MetroXRAINE 2022 - metroxraine.org) are invited to submit an extended version of their papers to this Special Issue. All submitted papers will undergo the standard peer-review procedure.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). Conference papers should be cited and noted on the paper. Please note that submitted extended papers should contain at least 50% new content (e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases) and not exceed 30% copy/paste from the original conference paper.
