Recent technological advances have ushered in a new era of immersive experiences, with innovations like head-mounted displays, and wearable sensing devices. However, the new level of immersiveness and realism offered in immersive realities comes with many open challenges. Growing data volumes and system performance constraints, including latency, computation power, energy efficiency, and bandwidth limitations, are now central concerns. Understanding user behaviour remains essential for enhancing future immersive technologies. These challenges and opportunities present a rich set of problems to be explored, providing valuable insights for supporting mixed or 3D virtual environment applications more effectively.
In this context, MMVE is an interactive and discussion-oriented workshop that serves as an inclusive and interdisciplinary forum, spanning a broad range of topics related to immersive experience or Extended reality (XR), including mixed reality (MR), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR). This workshop provides a unique opportunity for researchers in the field, from both academia and industry, to gather and foster discussions, share novel ideas, and present cutting-edge research contributions. It's a dynamic space where innovation knows no bounds, and new collaborations can begin.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

MMVE solicits full papers (4-6 pages, including references) and short papers (2-3 pages, including references), covering
one of the above or closely related topics. Short paper submissions are expected to either present a work-in-progress or
describe a system or application suitable for demonstration at the workshop.
All submissions should be formatted using the standard ACM proceedings style. All submissions must be blinded and constitute original, unpublished work not under review elsewhere. Submissions will undergo a double-blind peer review process and will be selected based on their originality, merit, and relevance to the workshop. Accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors at the workshop and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM MMSys 2024 proceedings.
